Playing Favorites

 |  March 24, 2008

Seth of The Altered Page has done it again- gathered up a bunch of mixed media artists and asked them to pick out their favorite pieces they’ve created and why. I have always been fascinated in hearing the background stories of paintings. Today’s theme is assemblage. Seth will be showcasing different artists in the days to come. Be sure to check it out~

Here is a synopsis of what’s coming up on The Pulse:

Imagine a museum filled with the work of all your favorite artists working in all your favorite artistic mediums. Now imagine that every piece of artwork has been hand chosen by each artist as their absolute favorites. Then imagine that printed by each piece of art is an explanation written by the artist detailing their selection. Welcome to Playing Favorites!

Responding to my invitation and an open call on my blog, more than 45 artists (and counting) have generously donated their art and their words to this installment of The Pulse. Collectively, they have submitted over 120 pieces of art. Over the next few weeks, I will be posting selections from each artist that are their favorite creations. Along with the images are their own stories that explain the significance of their choice or choices. Both the selections of artwork and the accompanying stories will help you get to know each artist on a more personal and revealing level.

Playing Favorites…coming to The Altered Page on Monday March 24th. See you there!
