This week we launched the newest section of The Road Gallery, The 500 Project. Now live, The 500 Project features over 150 original, contemporary works of art, all priced under $500 and starting at just $95. From abstract to expressionist, figurative to primitive, these inspiring, stunning pieces are available to buy directly online.  You’ll find works on paper, canvas and panel and in a range of media.  We have found a number of new artists to join The 500 Project such as Portland-based printmaker Mark Perry, expressionist painter Julia Clift, and abstract artist Michael St. Germain. In addition, a number of our existing artists have prepared or released pieces especially for The 500 Project including Joseph O’Neal, Xanthippe Tsalimi and Kelly Neidig. The result is a vibrant and stimulating collection of work.  In the Curator’s Selection, found on The 500 Project homepage, you can read all the latest news about the artists, discover the inspiration behind their work and see their newest paintings as we add them to the gallery. The Curator’s Selection is also the place to explore special collections and featured artists, chosen and presented by our curator, Neil Jacobs.

Choosing your pieces in The 500 Project couldn’t be easier. Browse the collection of exciting and dynamic artists, select your favorite pieces, add them to your collection and checkout using any major credit card or PayPal. Typically we process orders within three to five business days and your artwork usually arrive with seven to ten days. For more information, read our shipping and returns policy.

The 500 Project brings us another step closer to achieving our mission for the gallery, which is to showcase the work of talented emerging and established artists and to make their work accessible to people who love art and who want a positive experience buying art. We will continue to add more artists and release new work from the existing artists, so keep checking back.

We hope you enjoy The 500 Project.
