November Art Association Pinterest Contest!

12 Nov

Surprise!  This month’s Art Assocition contest is coming at ya a bit early!  With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up here in the US next Thursday, we thought many of our readers might be busy making pie & stuffin’ turkeys next Wednesday.  So Erin & I decided to hold our Art Association contest a week earlier than usual.  And it’s a good one!

If you’re new to Art Association here’s how it works– 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 catalyst piece.

Our “jumping off” art this month comes courtesy of artmuse.com, an online gallery website dedicated to bringing you beautiful artwork at accessible prices.  Sphere of Influence by Jennifer Chenoweth will provide some fantastic associations, don’t ya think?

Are you ready to start pinning away and maybe win some art?

Here’s how Art Association works–

Step 1|  We give you a piece of artwork, this month’s work is Sphere of Influence by Jennifer Chenoweth ( 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

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 any small size artmuse.com print of your choosing!  Some super fantastic choices on their site– be sure to check out all your options so you’ll have your choice ready when you win. 😉  Big thank you to artmuse.com for generously donating the giveaway this month!

The pinner with the best Art Association board ( as judged by me and Erin ) will be chosen on Monday, November 19th at 5pm (mountain standard time).  With this artmuse.com print as your catalyst, I know your boards are gonna be spectacular!

Pinning begins… NOW!!

October Art Associations Contest Winner: Athena Roth!

25 Oct

Athena’s board was dark & moody and we loved it!  Doesn’t she have a great eye?

I mean, those scarves, that ring and the Vivienne Westwood bag are gorgeous!  Not to mention the fantastic artwork she included.  It all worked together to beautifully compliment Kate Farrall’s work.  See the rest of Athena’s winning board here!

I’ve already notified Athena of her win and she’s super excited.  Want to be inspired and maybe win free artsy stuff?  Art Associations back next month with new art and another giveaway!

In the meantime, follow all the artsiness here on Artsy Forager and over on my Art Association partner Erin’s blog, artsocial.

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!

Mailing Overlap 10x8x8 by Kate Farrall

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!

27 Sep

.. Shannon Whitney!!  Shannon posted her board over on artsocial and Erin & I just fell in love with how colorful and cohesive it was.

Peek at Shannon Whitney’s winning Art Associations board

You guys know I’m a huge sucker for color!  The way Shannon honed in on the colors in Laura Newman’s work and how those hues were working together sealed the deal for me.

Shannon, if you’re reading, email Erin ( artsocialonline[at]gmail.com ) to claim your Boss prize!

If you weren’t picked this go ’round, don’t despair!  Art Associations will be back next month with new art & another giveaway!
