We know youd rather own a real Van Gogh instead of that wrinkled old poster of Starry Night on your wall. But until a bag of money magically falls from the sky, we recommend the Affordable Art Fair New York, which offers contemporary works of art from more than 70 local and international galleries at prices that wont totally break the bank (many pieces start at around $100). Not sure what to buy? Check out the panel discussion Top 10 Tips for Starting Your Art Collection (on Saturday at 2 p.m.). Or, if the event leaves you thinking I could have made that better myself!, you can learn how to create your own clay models, woodcuts, and etchings at the free sculpture and printmaking demonstrations held throughout the weekend.
