Can that be possible? If you've visited the Scottsdale area you'll probably be familiar with the high-end galleries with high-end prices. But Gallery 360° at Pinnacle Peak and Pima roads in Scottsdale actually specializes in affordable art. As the owner, Tim Hovde, says, people appear willing to hand over princely sums for reproductions but pass by cheaper originals. I guess it's something to do with the comfort of name recognition when people do that, and then pay a large sum to frame the reproduction too. Anyhow, next time you're in Scottsdale, check out Gallery 360° and see if you can't find some affordable original art that you like.
