Over the summer I wrote a guest post for the lovely Tamra of Ever Swoon on gifting artwork and it seemed like a relevant topic to revisit this time of year!

I recently stumbled upon this website called curate 1k and thought it was the perfect place to find that special and unique piece for a family member or friend. The point of the website is for the curator to find $1,000 worth of artwork a week. I love a good art sourcing challenge!

Here are a few of my favorite potential gifts from the curated weekly collection …

For your animal obsessed niece, check out Katie Vernon‘s colourful + quirky drawings.

For the real art historian in the family, they’ll swoon over Ryan Pickart‘s gorgeous paintings. Impress the gift recipient by commenting on how the aura of Pickart’s pieces are similar to that found in Klimt’s work.

For the lady who wishes her home was filled with Jonathan Adler products, browse through these popular paper + thread collages by Robert & Cheryl Roth, of The Beach Garage.

Visit curate 1k for all your affordable art needs!
