My Summer Vacation Art Giveaway


We're taking a brief break from our usual blog topics to ask our Readers about their Summer Vacation/Travel Plans in this installment of the Free Art Blog.  We'll discuss the 'Free Art' part in a moment, but first...




   



 



The Art of Travel.  

Vintage travel posters continue to be amongst some of the most sought after works of Art on the planet. 
Many enjoy reflecting on the Golden Age of Pleasure Travel.  New modes of transportation created during the late 19th and early 20th centuries made travel to faraway lands easy to do...and many did.  They boarded planes, ocean liners, trains, took to their cars, and explored worlds newly opened to them.  Artists were commissioned to entice visitors with their paintings reflecting the beauty of their countries.








Collectors frequently visit the Vintage Travel Art section of our shop, 
especially to collect the postcard-sized prints we carry.  
Postcards are a very affordable way for collectors to 
acquire a large selection of these vintage pieces.  

Consider browsing our shop to start your own collection. 
We also share proceeds from our art sales with local poverty charities, 
so buying Art would help those in need as well 
(details of our mission are at www.lovearthouse.org). 



Now... what would the Free Art Blog be without 'Free Art'?

(It would just be called 'Blog'...which isn't very good :)


This Giveaway won't have just 1 winner.
Not even 2 winners.

This Giveaway will have 
10 WINNERS. 


2 Winners will receive
Vintage Travel Art Gift Sets.

(retail value $22)

Each set includes:

1 Travel Journal
4 Vintage Travel Poster ACEO cards
4 Travel Poster Magnets
Vintage international stamps

*****************************************

4 Winners will receive a Set of
 Mini Travel Poster Magnets 






Each set includes 4 Mini Vintage
Travel Art Poster magnets.


****************************************

2 Winners will receive 2 of their favorite  
Vintage Travel Art Postcard Prints 
from our art shop to start their collection.
















**********************************************

And the final 2 Winners will receive 
Mini Collectible Tins with Vintage Travel Art



***********************************************

Whew!

Sweet Summer Art Giveaway


 Love Art House would like to celebrate the sweet start of
 Summertime with a brand new art giveaway. 



Before we get started, we would like to thank those who participated in the last giveaway we hosted. 
 We greatly appreciate the time you each took to explore our partner homeless organizations. 
 They are thankful for your support.  That giveaway is still open until June 30th, 
or when we reach 300 comments, so please feel free to enter, if you haven't already.

This blog takes us to the Windy City.  
We are very pleased to be offering our support to
 Inspiration Corporation in Chicago in their mission to serve the homeless, 
as well as  providing some art supplies to 
support Art Therapy programs for their clients. 

One of the ways we are offering support is through our Chicago-themed Art Shop.  
Approximately 50% of the proceeds from that shop are being donated to 
Inspiration Corporation, to help support their mission. 



A very special part of their services involves Inspiration Kitchens.


It serves as a wonderful way to provide culinary training, and employment opportunities 
to clients, offering them a new avenue to create self-sufficiency, and develop invaluable skills 
in the restaurant/food service industries.  

The restaurants they run in Garfield Park and Uptown are known throughout the 
community for offering excellent cuisine, and are highly reviewed by visitors.  
Blog readers in the Chicago area are encouraged to stop in and explore the
 restaurants' offerings.  You would also be helping to support their mission, 
while dining on great cuisine. 



Now onto the Summer Art Giveaway.



This giveaway comes from our very special  

Each collection will contain 4 deluxe postcard art prints.  
These postcards are suitable to decorate your walls, to use as stationary, 
to give to an art lover you know, or to keep for your own personal collection.  






We will be giving away 3 of these sets to blog visitors.

To enter, use the entry form at the end of today's blog post. 
Be sure to subscribe to us on Facebook to find out if you've won.

You are also able to purchase
these prints individually as low as $1.50 per postcard print.
Proceeds from our Chicago art shop benefit Inspiration Corporation.

This giveaway will end on July 15th, or once we reach
 250 comments (which ever happens first).
