NEW YORK, N.Y. (CitizenWire) — William Wegman collectors will be pleased to know that the affordable art website 20×200 (20×200.com) released not one but two editions of William Wegman prints on Thursday, December 16. Avid collectors of the William Wegman Weimaraners will have a chance to purchase “Game Board” and “Blizzard,” available in three limited edition sizes, with individual prints starting at $50 for an 8-inch x 10-inch photograph.
Weimaraner art is an unlikely category made commonplace by Wegman’s long and fruitful career with canine collaborators, starting with his first dog, Man Ray, whose progeny remain a part of Wegman’s life and work to this day. While known to many as the “dog art guy,” William Wegman is much more than that: a pioneer video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter and writer, he moves fluidly among various media. William Wegman and Fay Ray: Polaroids 1987-1995, an exhibition featuring 20-inch x 24-inch Polaroid Photographs of the artist’s second dog, is currently on view at New York City’s Senior & Shopmaker gallery.
Showcasing an ever-growing stable of artists, ranging from emerging to established to the legendary, 20×200 has previously featured four William Wegman editions; “No Fun Sleeping Under A Picture Like This” and “The Architects” with two editions featuring William Wegman dogs, “Pink Elephant” and “About Four Thirty.”

Launched in 2007 by art dealer, curator, writer and entrepreneur Jen Bekman, with the central mission of “art for everyone,” 20×200 was created as an alternative to traditional means of collecting art to challenge and innovate the status quo. By printing in editions and pricing works affordably, the site gives a broad audience the opportunity to own a work of art, making the often-daunting experience of collecting approachable. 20×200 is based on the notion that living with art enhances everyday life and the site’s intuitive and user-friendly experience empowers more people to collect. As it works to support collectors, 20×200 also gives artists an incredible opportunity to present their work to the widest possible audience while maintaining the highest level of production quality and integrity.
