SSA “Found Art” Contest

Standard

ImageWe love to connect with our fans, and want the opportunity to show you!

Send us photos of where you found Stephanie Schlatter Art while on your summer adventures, and as a thank you for making us smile, we will select random winners for amazing SSA items each month through Sept. 1, 2013. 

We are celebrating YOU with this contest. The life of a artist is, by and large, a solitary one. There are many blissful hours alone in the studio until the works go out into the world and you, the viewer, interact with them. When you share your experience with my work with me, it is so meaningful to know the interaction that I experience with my canvases has meaning to you. By sharing your pics with us, you’ll be entered in a monthly drawing for original art, prints, note cards and more!

For a complete list of places you’ll find SSA, click here. Photos can be directed to info@stephanieschlatterart.com. Keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts — you may see your photos reposted there!

To kick off the contest, here’s a collage of pics taken by Stephanie’s assistant, Jessica Stone, of SSA at the Grand Rapids Art Museum! 

Thank you in advance for participating!

Painting of the Week: “I Can See You Coming”

Standard

Image

“Barns are a part of the landscape here in Michigan — a part by which I am very inspired and intrigued. The single vineyard is also something you see much of, due to a flatter landscape and the vineyards’ spaced out nature. The most striking thing to me about the Michigan landscapes are the trees, always layers upon layers of trees. This piece is a combination of all these things that are so quintessentially Michigan. In the foreground, I had a ton of fun abstracting the wildflowers, grasses and fields often found on farmland, and the fence invites you to walk into the painting. It’s a celebration of the best of Michigan. From the barn, they can see you coming into the painting through the fence, thus the name, ‘I Can See You Coming.’ The color choice is about the many, many shades of green you will find on the Michigan wine trail.”
