Beth Dow

Jen Bekman has got her 20x200 thing up and running now. One of her current offerings caught my eye - the work of Beth Dow.

It's very beautiful work and in a way very classical (small c) in style. But it doesnt seem overly sentimental or nostalgic. It also seems to have enough quirky little touches (for want of a better phrase) that prevent it from becoming too twee. It has more life and individuality than a lot of similar work.

That said, I could also see it selling like hotcakes at say the gift shop in the Vita Sackville-West designed Sissinghurst Gardens.

You can buy "Bags" at 20x200
