Art of the deal

There’therefore a reason the Affordable Arts Festival is considered the “Black Friday” of all artwork sales: Every object of artwork is priced at $100 or more. Bargain art fans will surely need to line up early to the outside occasion on Aug. 26 in Arapahoe Community College (5900 S. Santa Fe Dr.) at Littleton. By 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., more than 160 Colorado and national artists promote their works in a variety of mediums, from both watercolors and glass to sculpture and jewelry. Don’t allow the low prices fool you. This is artwork that is fine, not crap, with some pieces priced in the tens of thousands of dollars.  Entry is $10, with children 12 and under free. Proceeds go to the Arapahoe Community College scholarship fund.  affordableartsfestival.com
