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

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–
