UPDATE: (July 18): Farrell Brickhouse is the winner of the Two Coats contest.
Inspired by the new Bravo reality show Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, Two Coats of Paint is starting a contest of our own to promote the new Two Coats Facebook Page, provide an opportunity for readers to share their work and, well, meet one another. To participate in the contest, readers must simply comment on Two Coats Facebook Page posts. Be insightful, funny, articulate, stupid–whatever. As Sarah Jessica Parker implored in the first WANGA episode, “Be courageous…be yourselves!” The winner(s) will receive a solo post about his/her paintings on Two Coats of Paint. (I wish I could offer 100,000 bucks and a solo show at The Brooklyn Museum like the TV show, but this is the best I can do.) All comments posted before June 30 will be considered. Prizes are decided solely on the basis of Facebook commenting, not portfolios or exhibition history. Good luck!
