October Art Associations Pinterest Contest!

17 Oct

Who’s in for some artsy pinning fun with Artsy Forager and Erin Cassidy of art social?   We’ve been gettin’ our pins on and are psyched to present a new Art Associations contest!

In case you missed the debut contest last month, here’s the gist– You create a Pinterest board around one work of art ( which we provide ), filled with anything and everything that pops into your mind while gazing at the inspiration piece.

For October, we’re associating with the piece below, Mailing ABQ 10-12 Lines by Kate Farrall.

Mailing, ABQ, 10-12 Lines by Kate Farrall

The prints from Kate Farrall’s Mailings to Myself series are made by sending un-exposed photo paper through the mail, allowing it to expose during its trip, and then developing it when it arrives.  Such a serendipitous way of art making!

But now for the real fun, the CONTEST!  Here’s how our little artsy mad scientist experiment will work–

Step 1|  We give you a piece of artwork, this month’s work is Kate Farrall’s Mailing ABQ 10-12 Lines ( above )

Step 2 | You create a Pinterest board titled Art Association, like mine here, where you pin any and all images you associate with the featured artwork ( like word associations, only visual )– here’s a little sneak peek at my board to get your creative juices flowin’

Step 3 | Leave a link to your Art Associations pinboard in the Comments section of this post

Step 4 | Follow both art social and Artsy Forager on Pinterest ( if you already are, you’re ahead of the game and doubly awesome )

Here’s what you can win–

Once you’ve completed the steps above, you’ll be entered for a chance to win Mailing 10x8x8, a unique chromogenic print by Kate Farrall ( below ). Thanks to Kate for generously donating this work for our little contest!

The pinner with the best art associations ( as judged by me and Erin ) will be chosen on Wednesday, October 24th at 5pm (mountain standard time).  Last month’s boards were incredibly creative, can’t wait to see what artsy associations you see in Kate’s work!

Ready..   set..   associate!!

Would you like your artwork to be featured as an Art Association subject?  Shoot Erin an email at artsocialonline@gmail.com for more info.
