This gift guide was created by Barry Friedland of Thumbtack Press..."When I go to a gallery or an artist’s studio, I always ask if I can look through their flat files. (Hint: the best stuff is in there.) Doing so lets me create my own experience that I don’t typically get when I see art hung on walls. So when Brittni invited me to sift through all of the art on her site and pull together some of my favorites, I got that same giddy feeling as a kid in a candy store, or rather an adult in a candy store (or is it a kid in an adult store)? I’m a lover of the unusual. That’s the reason Thumbtack Press exists – to promote the well being of artists that see the world a little differently, and to give our customers a unique selection of curated art. Here are a few of my favorite works from artists that all seem to be looking through a similar quirky lens. I hope you enjoy..."
