Hello and welcome to a new round of Style Imitating Art!
About Style Imitating Art
Style Imitating Art is hosted by Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey, Daenel of Living Outside the Stacks, and me. Style Imitating Art challenges us to draw style inspiration from pieces of art. Every other Monday one of us selects an inspiration image and we each post the image on our blogs. The following Monday we share our art-inspired outfits. The following Wednesday, the curator shares all of the submissions on her blog.
This Weeks Curator
Today, Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey is the curator.
This Week’s Inspirational Image
This round’s artwork is a quilt entitled “Solar System”. It is by Ellen Harding Baker, an American teacher. She designed this quilt in 1876 to help teach her astrometry classes.
I love this work. It is mainly black and white with a few bright colors for accent. Ideas are percolating already.
Will You Join the Fun?
I hope this art inspires you to create a look and that you will join us. Send a photo of your SIA-inspired outfit along with a small blurb on how you were inspired to Salazar whose email is firstname.lastname@example.org by November 16th. She will share the submissions on her blog on Wednesday, November 17th.
Anyone can participate and you certainly do not have to have a blog.
If you do share your inspirations on Instagram use the hashtag #StyleImitatingArt so we know you are there. You can also tag us in the images. Our Instagram names are @terrigardner_meadowtree, @daenelt, and @14shadesofgrey.
Take care and create on!
