So, you missed your chance to buy a $60 Banksy in Central Park. Stop scouring lower Manhattan’s back alleys and take a breather, because finding exceptional, original art doesn’t have to be this hard. At Prints Gone Wild!, billed as “NYC’s Greatest Affordable Graphic Art Dogpile,” Cannonball Press gathers 10 printing presses, studios, and galleries — each with an arsenal of artists — in one space for this annual one-night-only blowout sale. Many of the hand-carved woodblock prints are priced at a low, low $20 a pop, with everything under $50, so there’s no longer any excuse for bare-walled, spartan apartments. Drop in to browse, hear some live music, and witness live printing demonstrations. It’s like a museum where you can actually
afford to buy things. And drink beer.
