Best Paintings by Numbers

The 50-50 Show
Fun, clever and affordable, The 50-50 Show features 50 works created by 50 artists in 50 days, most of them priced below $150. Do the math, and you’ll come up with a grand total of 2,500 tiny treasures. (They’re only 6 by 6 inches each.) Held at the 20th Street Art Gallery in midtown, the event sees its third anniversary in April 2009, and gallery owner Jim Ferry says he intends to continue the tradition. But get ready to fight the crowds: During Second Saturday this past April, the place was packed.
