Art Roundup: Summer Time

Hello again — it’s Danielle from The Jealous Curator, back with another artsy, and affordable, roundup for you! OK, now, I realize it’s only April, but I’m pretty ready for summer to hurry up and get here, and so with that, I bring you today’s trending topic: #summer

art-summer-treats

Oh yes. I want all of that. Ice cream, popsicles, and candy sticks! This is the work of New Zealand born, UK based artist Joel Penkman. He has originals for sale, from $250 to $3000, and prints in his Etsy shop starting around $60! Oh, and he also does commissions, so if there is a fancy popsicle that you want painted, you can reach him right here.

OK, we’ve got our treats, now let’s get away from it all, shall we:

Are you getting too hot? Me too — let’s take a dip:

swimming artwork

Oh my. The underwater swimmers of New York-based painter, Samantha French. I wish you could see these in person. Most of them are really big, and when you’re surrounded by them in a gallery, you feel like you’re in a cool, blue pool! Samantha sells originals, prints, and also does commissioned pieces.

And finally, what’s a summer day without a trip to the beach:

beach and sunset artwork

These are the very dreamy photographs of American photographer Alicia Bock. All of these gorgeous, sun-soaked images are from her series, 2900 Miles. There are oh-so-many more where this came from, and you can buy all of them in a range of print sizes — from an 8”x8” for $35, to a 20”x20” for $220 — very dreamy, indeed!

    Great Post! Question about art prints though- I bought a print from Society6 that measures 13X18 and another that’s 17X8. I’m trying to NOT get them customed framed due to price, but having a difficult time finding framing for these. Any suggestions on what to to (or how to frame up) on weird sizing like this?
    Thanks!!

    • i will sometimes buy a pre-made frame (ikea etc) that’s quite a bit bigger than the print, then mount it on mat board, and pop it in the frame. i like having the piece float in the white space (if it works with that particular print) unfortunately if you don’t want space around it,or a mat that fits perfectly you probably will have to take it to be framed : (

  7. It’s so wonderful for you to feature some real art. People tend to overlook how great art changes your mood, room and perceptions. These pieces are so refreshing all year round. I can’t wait for summer too!

    I love 2900 Miles and thought one of the beaches looked familiar. Sure enough, some of her pictures are from my home town! Small world, yay Siesta Key. Thank you for introducing me to this artist, Danielle!!!

  9. wow, loving those ice-cream paintings! So juicy!

    Maybe it’s just me (and it probably is because I see this a lot), but those photo prices seem high for something that isn’t a limited edition. I don’t mind paying good money for original art or limited-edition prints (and I have), but if something is going to be printed ad infinitum, it basically becomes mass-produced art and the price should reflect that.
