Do you love to create, share, and receive art? David Pringle (@dpringle) has made it possible for artists to share a piece of themselves with their creative peers. The artists who participate are from all over the world! I participated in the last art swap that was earlier this year in May. The response David was receiving in the Twitter world was really impressive. What made me join was not only the idea of the Art Swap but how everyone else responded. Everywhere I looked on Twitter, I felt people were talking about the Art Swap and was able to see artist’s processes or the photos of the pieces they were going to send out. The thrill of sending a piece to Mexico for @niniamurcielago to enjoy and then receiving beautiful artwork from Petra Mosher (@kaminenmosher) was hard to describe. But I was happy to be a part of the community that was built for the Art Swap.
Once David mentioned he was going to have another Art Swap registration, I immediately signed up no questions asked. This time around we will have to send a piece no larger than 8″x10″ out to our “secret artist” by November 17th. If you are a sculptor, keep the size under 12 inches. If you are a photographer, you will send a high-quality art print from a limited, signed series. I encourage you to jump in and take part in this creative endeavor!
