Can’t say it enough, buy local! If you can support local artists, builders farmers, etc. DO IT! So much talent out there, and at very reasonable prices!
Many people do not buy art because they don’t think they know enough about art, or they believe it is too expensive. Art does not have to be expensive. There are so many local artists out there selling their work at very reasonable prices. They are just trying to make ends meet by doing what they love. SUPPORT THEM. Not only will you have a beautiful original piece, but you will feel good knowing that you helped someone continue their dream!
This piece below is from a local New Bern artist, Lee Hood. It is an original acrylic on canvas and it was only $40.
