For those of you interested i am hosting a art swap through my website. The goal is to encourage others to try a new art form so please submit your best work as well as the technique or medium you are most passioned about.. This is not strictly limited to wood working any form of art is accepted. if you are interested here is a link to the page as well as the details of the event. https://featheredwoodworking.wordpress.com/events-4/art-swap-under-construction-3/
feather swap is designed to make the world a more enriched world by giving artist of different backgrounds a opportunity to exchange their passions in the hope of encouraging growth and excitement. Many artists lose their passion for their chosen craft and hopefully this art exchange will allow artist to recharge their passion and encourage personal development. This program will provide artist a chance to swap their work for the work of another in any medium. If the work is inspiring, it will hopefully encourage the recipient to expand their own interest to try the medium or technique that they received. This means the submitted work should represent your best work so that you can represent your craft and skill in the best light.
The cost of the materials for the piece should be in the 10 United States dollar range. (any size or cost of work is allowed but sender is responsible for freight)
Sign up date will start on the first of February
Submission should be posted by the last day of March with a description, name of the artist, and photograph then I will randomly match artist so that each pair of artist can swap their work.
Each participant needs to provide a email or alternative contact to be informed of any problems and updates as well as to be exchanged with another participant for the exchange of the created project.
if a website is available it should be submitted so that their other work can receive credit
Each submission need a short paragraph telling the receiver some needed information about the submitted piece example: stating medium, tools needed, focus, challenges, tips, interest, cultural significant ect…. keeping in mind the goal is to encourage people to try this art form.
at the end of the event I will put together a poll that will allow others to vote on which entry is the favorite. Which ever entry wins will receive a prize. The prize will follow the spirit of the event and will be about learning a art.
