Here's your challenge:
Find something in your kitchen and use it to make a post-card sized piece of art.
(and using food packaging in a collage doesn't count this time)
There are lots of ways you could interpret this.
Here are just a few ideas:
- use a fruit or vegetable as a stamp
- use a kitchen tool to apply paint
- make a gelatin block for gelatin prints
- use a food ingredient in a creative way
- involve one of your appliances (shrink art anyone?)
You can use plenty of non-kitchen items as well, as long as something from the kitchen is used in your process or imagery.
- Create a postcard, no larger than 4"x6"
- Write a message on the back explaining how you used a kitchen item to create your postcard
- include your name and contact information (address and/or email and/or blog) so that you partner can thank you or find out more about you.
- leave the address section blank
- Stick in in an envelope with:
- a stamp (don't adhere to the postcard in case I need to send yours to someone out of the country)
- a mailing label with your name and address on it (I will stick it on the card I mail back to you. This keeps me from having to decipher handwriting on the envelope you send me, and saves me time when swapping everything and mailing it back out)
- mail it to me no later than August 11th:
PO Box 532
Shrewsbury, MA 01545
- Feel free to make more than one ( you can send them to me in the same envelope). You'll get back the number of postcards you create. Make sure to include a mailing label and stamp for each post card you create.
- If you live outside the US, don't include stamps, but send me $1 for postage via paypal. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- I will post your work to the blog when I receive it. If you would like your image linked to your blog, or flickr account, or facebook page, or etsy shop (or whatever) just send me a note telling me how you want it linked. (this is a great way to meet other artists and make lots of new friends)
