I'm not looking for original an Van Gough, but want something nicer than an Ikea print.

art college end of year shows if you want one-off originals, exhibitions at little local galleries for a numbered print, or order online from the tate or other big galleries for a decent poster print of a lesser known piece

Local art exhibitions. Shops and galleries when we're on holiday.

The most we've paid is £350; we saw the artist's work at an exhibition, but the paintings were already sold, so we tracked him down, visited him at home and bought a painting from him directly.

I've bought a few from local art exhibitions- anything from £50 to £200. Just buy what you like.

I'll have a look out for art exhibitions. Looking on line is sooo difficult to tell what the picture is like in RL.

Sorry I'm no good at links, but Achica has great affordable and unusual art

www.etsy.com is worth a look. I just bought a nice little watercolour for £30 and a beautiful hand thrown salad bowl.

these are lovely & you can zoom in to see better. I wasn't disappointed when I saw the real thing...
