Best Of 2017
DECEMBER 27, 2017 

We had an exciting inaugural year for our Editorials, meandering through a variety of topics from artistic mediums, themes like colors or formats, historical features, decor suggestions and artist spotlights in an attempt to touch on the neverending intrigue to be found in the world of artmaking. It seems the more you look, the more there is to learn about who these oftentimes monumentally famous artists are and what kinds of things motivate them, and in turn how that relates to us all in our everyday lives— calling attention to universal themes that are investigated to inspire, enlighten, share and ultimately infuse our lives with pleasure, emotion and connection. Here are some of the highlights...

History Distilled in Exhibition Posters:

Fine art prints and vintage posters have a unique allure to them, being a highly accessible way to touch the reproduction work of a favorite artist and also an investment in a real piece of art— many of these prints are limited edition, rare, collectible or hard to find, and often bear the unspoken story of the time in which they were printed. This theme was presented in our History Distilled in Exhibition Posters I and II article set, and is one that we’ll continue to visit in future writings, as it truly highlights the real value of these works which we love to call analog printing.
