ARTmonday: SMFA at Tufts Art Sale 2017 Is This Week

By Stylecarrot @StyleCarrot

The SMFA at Tufts Art Sale is this Thu., Nov. 16 to Sun., Nov. 19; 10 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Sun. until 5 p.m.) at  School of the Museum of Fine Arts, 230 Fenway in Boston, on the side street right next to the MFA and its parking lot.

The SMFA Art Sale is  my favorite art event of the year. There are nearly 4,000 works from established, emerging, and student artists, from top names including Jim Dine and James Turrell to student and faculty pieces. Prices vary too, with much of it reasonably affordable. There are the occasional pieces for tens of thousands of dollars, many in the thousand or several thousand range, and tons under $1,000 and some even under $100. (Once I found a piece for $8!)

Much of the artwork in our home is from the SMFA Art Sale. (I currently spot seven in my living room.) We have photographs, paintings, and mixed media works we have purchased at the Sale throughout the years, and I still think about a couple of video art pieces I wish we had snapped up.

I hope you check it out, it is well worth it. New artworks are constantly displayed as pieces are sold, and there are tons of shrinkwrapped pieces in bins that are fun to browse. I stopped by the SFMA yesterday morning to get a jump start, and I’ll head back there tomorrow for Medici Night. (To become a Medici supporter click here.)

If you’d like help choosing art for your home or office, let me know. I’ll be scouting the sale for clients and interior designers as well as myself. Here are 20 works that caught my eye so far.

You can see more from the sale on my IG feed @StyleCarrotCurates.
