(Free Press Release) WILLIAM WEGMAN PHOTOGRAPHS STARTING AT $50
FEATURED EXCLUSIVELY ON 20x200.COM
Online Art Retailer Makes Collecting William Wegman Accessible to All
New York, NY (December 16, 2010) William Wegman collectors will be pleased to know that the affordable art website 20x200 released not one but two editions of William Wegman prints this Thursday, December 16. Avid collectors of the William Wegman Weimaraners will have a chance to purchase Game Board and Blizzard, available in three limited edition sizes, with individual prints starting at $50 for an 8Ã¢â‚¬x10Ã¢â‚¬ photograph.
Weimaraner art is an unlikely category made commonplace by Wegman's long and fruitful career with canine collaborators, starting with his first dog, Man Ray, whose progeny remain a part of Wegman's life and work to this day. While known to many as the ""dog art guy"", William Wegman is much more than that: a pioneer video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter and writer, he moves fluidly among various media. William Wegman and Fay Ray: Polaroids 1987-1995, an exhibition featuring 20x24 Polaroid Photographs of the artist's second dog, is currently on view at New York City's Senior & Shopmaker gallery.
Showcasing an ever-growing stable of artists, ranging from emerging to established to the legendary, 20x200 has previously featured four William Wegman editions; No Fun Sleeping Under A Picture Like This and The Architects with two editions featuring William Wegman dogs, Pink Elephant and About Four Thirty.
