Basically, you drop by the gallery during daytime hours. See art you like? Follow the instructions and adopt it. Forever. Have art which needs adopting? Leave it hanging (securely) on the Home, or bring it around back to me so I can curate it. This is NOT a take one leave one deal. You want art? Have some.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. Some of the most fabulous donated pieces have been dumpster diving finds.
Non-moopy sturdy art is best. People leave me heartfelt cute little on the spot drawings all the time, and those suffer badly on the Home. Makes me sad.
