Fab Freebie: Canvas The Area

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***

Are you looking to kick off your art collection? Do you want to add a bit of gallery-eque feel to that blank wall? Or do you just love winning something pretty? Well this week’s prize from Rachel Halsey Photography is right up you’re alley then.

Rachel’s a portrait-photographer-for-hire from Greenville, SC who’s making the move into selling her vintage-inspired images. So now her sometimes-sweet, sometimes-industrial work is available on canvas in two styles: gallery wraps (where the canvas is wrapped around 1.5″ piece of wood) or float wraps (which are similar, but give the added dimension of “floating” off the wall a bit). Either way you look at it, it’s a sophisticated twist on your traditional framed art wall or leaning mantlescape (bonus: each canvas is ready to hang, so there’s no need to hunt down a frame).

Here’s the breakdown about how you can snag one for yourself (oh and stay tuned for a YHL discount on Thursday):

  • PRIZE: Any image in Rachel Halsey’s shop, in either a 11 x 14 gallery wrap or a 16 x 20 float wrap
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “CANVAS ME” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … since this week is about giving your art a gallery feel, we’d love to hear if you have a favorite art gallery or museum of another variety. Are you a MoMA guy or gal? Or maybe you’d rather find yourself in your city’s science or history museums?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, March 31th at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE SHIPS: To all Americans and Canadians alike
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!

    When I lived in L.A., I loved the Getty Center both for the art and the amazing scenery and view.

    My children take art classes at a studio named “Doodles” in my hometown of Beloit,WI. Every year, at our city’s college, they display the kids artwork gallery style in their museum!

    CANVAS ME (please)!!!

    While I love visiting all the museums in New York City, my guilty pleasure is a trip to the Adirondack Museum (up in, of all places, the Adirondack state park). It has ever-changing exhibits plus mainstays such as the economic, social, and environmental displays. Go ‘Dacks!

    Those images are amazing… we don’t have any art galleries in our area… I used to live in Vancouver and remember perusing the art gallery there with my husband. Lovely.

    Canvas me! After spending five weeks in Italy this January, I have to say that my favorite museum is the Brera in Milan. Not only is it filled with amazing art, but the building itself is truly beautiful.

    CANVAS ME!!!!!!

    Since I’m from Montreal, I’m going to have to go with the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal. It’s terrific! I love it!

    With 4 children, we frequent the Jr. Museum where they love all the hands on science/art exhibits :-)

    My favorite museums/galleries are any that we went to in Florence- I really couldn’t pick a favorite among those!
