"Gorecki" by Amica Whincop

“Abstract art enables the artist to perceive beyond the tangible, to extract the infinite out of the finite. It is the emancipation of the mind. It is an exploration into unknown areas.” - Arshile Gorky

To say the least, abstract art is one of our favorite things in life. To celebrate this imaginative, boundary-pushing style, we are hosting our very first Facebook contest!

Here’s how to enter:

STEP 1: Like Artwork Archive on Facebook.

STEP 2: Post a photo of an abstract piece you’ve created - any medium - on our AA Loves Abstracts - Art Contest Event page on Facebook.

The picture with the most likes at the end of the contest wins a $50 gift card to Blick Art Materials! And, we know you want more art supplies!

TIP: A few likes can go a long way. Rally your art fans on social media to help you win! Just be sure they click on and like the ORIGINAL post in Artwork Archive’s Event (not your shared post)—that’s where we'll be counting likes! Plus, we’re hoping you gain more art fans along the way as you get your work seen.

To help fans find your post, just click on the time (underneath your name) on the image that was posted and copy the url in the address bar. That's the direct link to the picture you posted!

There are only a few days left!

The contest ends Thursday 10/5/17 at 3:00 P.M. MST. The winner will be announced on Friday. Only one entry accepted per artist. All artists are eligible to enter. This promotion is in no way associated with Facebook.

Head over to Facebook to enter, and start getting eyes on your abstracts!
