Everyone knows I love a good competition. Winning things is fun.
You’ll also know that I love supporting artists and crafters when they take the leap and sell their work to the world or do the scary things so many dream about but never ‘take the leap’ to do. With this post I get to do both!
Susan Tuttle’s new book has just hit the shelves at Amazon and to promote it she’s hlding a competition on her blog: Ilkas Attic.
I’ve been reading Susan’s blog for a while now – it’s full of beautiful photographs and words that inspire thought and feeling. A treasure and a pleasure.
The book itself sounds fantastic too. Here’s the writeup from Amazon: Within the pages of Exhibition 36, readers will enter a virtual art exhibit featuring thirty-six mixed-media artists whose collage, digital, assemblage, altered and repurposed art adorn the walls and pedestals of this unique gallery. The artists are “present” throughout the exhibit, answering questions, sharing their thoughts, talking about their work and offering instruction. The tour is structured to provide insight into the creative process of the artists whose work is on display and the reader will be delighted with the plethora of inspiration, articles, techniques and general visual candy. As a final bonus, many artists featured in the book have contributed imagery as a gift to readers for attending the exhibit to reuse in their own creations.
