Earlier this year, The Art Newspaper reported that 30% of one-artist exhibitions at major US museums featured artists from the same five galleries[1]. Clearly, art is a business, and it is undeniably a retail business – a marketplace where commodities are bought and sold for the highest possible price. Today, artists of all ages and renown are fetching higher prices than ever. Despite recent worldwide economic downturn, the art market has continued and strengthened, with auction houses guaranteeing sales, galleries opening multiple locations around the world, and some buyers viewing young artists’ works as investments to be flipped – art appreciation indeed.

Davidson Contemporary is pleased to presents a group show titled BOGO!. A term used in retail and wholesale shopping, BOGO stands for “Buy One, Get One”, and is used by retailers to encourage sales, move inventory, and garner attention to a product. However, in this case, Davidson Contemporary has asked each of the artists to include two works with the understanding that they will be sold together, and for the price of one. It is our hope that this aggressive approach will provide these artists with both sales and exposure. Artists in the exhibition include: Adam Parker Smith, Biddle/Frankel, Glendalys Medina, Ida Badal, Joe Rudko, John Powers, Leslie Roberts, Matt Waples, Nathan Catlin, Patrick Mohundro, and Shannon Finnegan.


To help compensate the eleven artists, more than half of each sale will go directly to the artist. Davidson Contemporary will also donate 25% of each sale to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in an effort to provide further incentive for collectors to buy as the gallery helps support the continued fight against breast cancer.
