Anti M's Home for Wayward Art 2013

Postby AntiM » Sun Jan 13, 2013 9:45 am

Welcome! The Home is looking to return to Hushville this year. We are listed under theme camps because we camp with our art, so let me confuse us all as best I can.

Boilerplate introduction:

Established in 2005, Anti M's Home for Wayward Art is a place for small art, medium art, amateur art, but especially Bad Art, Lost Art, Found Art, Art which Needs a Good Spanking, and of course, Wayward Art. This is not a gallery, it is more like juvenile detention for art, an orphanage, a half-way house for misfit art. All art in the Home is up for adoption, all the prospective new parent needs to do is fill out a small adoption form and clip it to the Home in place of their newfound art darling. Art may also be committed to the Home, just put it securely in place and say good-bye. While the emphasis is on visual art such as paintings, drawings and photos, other mediums such as sculptural art, jewelry, and trinkets found their way into the Home to be scooped up and loved. Costumes, MOOP, food, and your abandoned sign too bulky to haul around are not within the parameters, thank you. If you are donating many items, do leave them in the back, in the shade structure with a note.

Why? I love to paint, I love to do miniatures, I love to give things away. Based on the concepts of art and gifting, I came up with the Home. Why Bad Art? While I am quite good at miniatures, I am not always pleased with my products. I also glean art from thrift stores and friends and family and yard sales.


Godzillas be here, Capt'n.

What if you're too loud to enter Hushville??

I'll def stop by... I'm sure I can leave a wayward piece that someone will love.

Sssssh. Hushville is simply no generators and no amplified music within the village.

Looking forward to your art!

Yes, and thank you!

I try for smaller pieces, as people are going to be hauling them home. But pretty much anything fun or interesting or unique will get adopted. Someone brought a full sized framed sofa painting one year, I was worried, but indeed, it found a new home!

Tips for donations:

Drawings and photos can be flimsy in the wind. Try to mount them, even if it is taped onto cardboard.

Chalk drawings and blackboard rapidly become playa dust magnets, obscuring the work.

Glass in frames is okay, but far from ideal.

Collages are fun, be sure they aren't MOOPy.

Do label your work on the back if possible. Write a note on it, fun for the new parent!

You don't need to fill out a card when donating art, it tends to get lost or others think the work is spoken for.

If you're donating a lot of the same photo or a bunch of jewelry, put up one or two on the Home gallery, then drop the rest off back in the shade structure. That way I can sprinkle them out over the week, among other pieces. Just looks better that way.

Bigger is not always better. Tiny backpacker paintings make for great gifts!

Hehe. I will make sure the rocks make it into the gallery rather than the private collection. I do love them dearly though!

oh, you'll know wayward art when you see it...

throughout the year, i keep my eyes out for that lonely orphan, a piece of art that someone somewhere really put their, "something" into it, and with no judgement on whether it's bad or good, but knowing that somebody somewhere on the playa will see it, fall in love, and take it home.


i have a pretty good adoption rate so far.

i found one the other day too, looks like tempera...kinda washed out, but haunting...it will get stashed in the suitcase. 8)

As I recall in the last set up she didn't have a lot of display space for sculpture. I think there's a reassessment going on, but on a different issue. I don't have the nerve to comment on stained glass. Except to say that the issue with glass is if it's broken. If it's in good shape and packed well on the way out then it doesn't follow that there will be MOOP from it without some sort of accident or idiocy involved.

I have very little room for sculptures, although I can make arrangements. Too many bulky items get difficult to display. I have a small table, mostly used for writing out the cards, and a tiny bit of a ledge formed by the trailer wheel well. I have two easels for larger pictures, and I can hang or prop items off of them as well.

Funniest sculpture was a trophy which was made into a bunch of shooters aiming at a Santa. Hilarious. I once had a trio of stuffed frogs playing instruments. One year someone left a big geometric sculpture made of drinking straws. Not very pretty, looked like a bike decoration they got tired of and dumped on me. Not adopted, we had to demolish it to get it in the trailer. And the helmet covered with Mentos and dyed rice crispies... really? You dump your costume item you've been wearing all week? Which is why I don't take costumes, or donations on Saturday. I had to chase away an older guy who had climbed up and was wiring his nasty wig, broken parasol and clown shoes to the top of the Home. I get a bit snarly when I'm used as a trash receptacle.

Stained glass does work IF it is well made and solid, and IF it has a strong hanging wire or chain. One of the best pieces in the private collection is a small stained glass panel of the Man with dust swirls. I went out to the Home one morning and saw a piece of cardboard clipped up, had a marker drawing of the Man on it. Many clips had been used. So I went to move it, slightly annoyed, because who the hell uses that many clips on a crappy piece of cardboard. Oh. Wait a minute, it was HEAVY. It was a couple pieces of cardboard cradling a gorgeous piece of stained glass! You bet I kept it for myself. I don't keep very many pieces for myself, but this was astonishingly beautiful and obviously made specifically to give away. I was floored. I still thank whoever made it daily, it is in my front picture window. I should take a picture of it to post.

If in doubt, bring the piece around to the shade structure, and I'll find a way to make it work.

Simon brought excellent stuff last year. Got adopted quickly, with joy.

Fishy brings terrific stuff, good eye!

I have piles of supplies, just need to turn the kitchen table back into an art studio. Soon. Not too soon. It was really nice to sit down and have a meal somewhere besides the coffee table in the basement.

acrylic, water color, oils? All of the above?
I use a wine case to store my supplies. The dividers (the cardboard that keeps the bottles from clanging into each other) are just about perfect for a large jar of acrylics. When I want to use the table, I can just lift the whole thing and put it on the floor. :)

Mostly acrylics for me. Oils bother my asthma, and I'm not into watercolors. Chalks and pastels don't work for the playa.

I have a wheeled set of drawers to hold paints, a caddy for brushes and tools, a case for 3-d fabric paints, shelves in the workroom for modpodges and other glues, etc, a box of canvases, canvases under the ironing board, frames, a box of wood scraps to make canvases from the rolls of primed canvas I own, a bin with photos, matts and collage fodder... and much more. Plus there's all my miniature and sewing and beading supplies. Basically, a spare bedroom with nothing in it but crafts and my closet. Carpeted, so the kitchen makes a better place to paint. I just wheel out the drawers, and haul out the stuff like the easel and the caddy. The hall is a staging area sometimes. Like now.

Oh, and then Larry has all his leather working stuff an candle stuff in the basement, in what is the "other half" of our living room. We don't speak of the garage much. Sometimes we have to reel it in quite a bit. A collector and a packrat could easily tip over into hoarding.

Yeah, but its hard to throw anything away if you have a wide range of arts.
What is a left over from one project, may be the finishing touch to the next.
