This Saturday, a group of artists is throwing a pop-up studio sale at 56 Bogart Street. All of the work will be priced for under $100, making this a rare opportunity to snatch some affordable pieces from emerging artists.

Dubbed Beg The Raven, the event will feature artist books, photography, paintings, sculpture and works on paper from Alessandro Keegan, Bob Szantyr, Elisa Soliven, Jaqueline Cedar, Jennifer Sullivan, JJ Manford, Jon Lutz, Elizabeth Insogna, Max Razdow, and Vanessa Albury.

The pop-up will only be open on Saturday, from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., so we recommend getting there early before all the good stuff is snatched up.

Here’s a little preview of what’s available.

From a Conor Backman solo show upstate to an all-painting exhibition of 50 artists in Bed-Stuy, there’s painting everywhere on Saturday. There’s so much paint happening, cans of it are starting to bulge out of canvases.
