Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of,” where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Artwork Under $100” and we’ve got loads of it.

Sure, it’s hard to put a price on art. But it’s easier than ever to decorate on a budget while supporting local artists. We’re into everything handcrafted and locally-inspired, and these pieces of budget artwork showcase the best of both worlds.

    Cathy Savels has LOVELY botanical prints, too. Her artichokes would be great in a kitchen. Super-realistic French wine corks, too. And her red cardinal print would be a wonderful way to welcome the winter holidays.

    May I add an option for framing these affordable art prints?

    Changeable gallery frames! Instant matting, changing, and storage. They’re super easy to hang; eco-friendly, and 100% made in America (in Chicago!). They’re just a few bucks more (sometimes less) than the big-box single use frames, and they’re built to last a lifetime.

    Slipping those made-it-yourself pieces (or simple little scribbles from the kiddos) into a luxuriously thick, wide mat turns it into an instant showpiece. It only takes a few seconds, and you can swap it out whenever you like for a fresh look – and store the prints in back. (http://changeofart.com/)
