The Best of What’s Next
Everyone deserves affordable art and emerging artists deserve a platform for their work. We connect collectors with talented new painters, photographers, sculptors and mixed media artists who have been carefully selected by our curatorial board. @60” decodes the art market, creating 21st century-style patronage that supports rising art stars and cultivates savvy collectors of all stripes.
Your very own gallerist, at your fingertips
With @60” you don’t need a fortune, or a fortuneteller, to catch rising art stars. Consider our art advisors your private gallerists. They’re here to help you understand and hone your own aesthetic, make smart investments in the art market, and most of all, bring home pieces you’ll love for years to come. Combine our art advisors with our unique SIN Prints, and you art collecting experience will be an intimate and enjoyable process unique to your needs.
Live together first
We stand behind every artwork we sell, but not every piece is for every collector, and not all pieces work in every room. That’s why we provide a print--the same size and scale as the original--to hang and live with for as long as you need to figure that you hate it above the bed, but love it above the couch.
There’s nothing romantic about a penniless artist
For today’s emerging artists to become tomorrow’s big names they need time to make art and money to support themselves as artists. @60” collectors don’t just buy art, they make it possible for new artists to thrive and for the art market to evolve.
Invest in what’s next
Our curators are passionate about finding rising talent and bringing their work to a wider audience. As an early investor in new work you’ll have the opportunity to purchase pieces while they’re still very affordable, but with the confidence that they’ll be the next big thing.
