Greece’s Anarina Anar displays her vibrant polymer works only on Facebook. (Thanks to Conny Brockstedt who found her on Flickr as well.) Anarina’s textured and painted surfaces have very aggressive, passionate energy.

While the pieces are primitive and rough they are also distinctive and very personal. She makes each technique her own.

Facebook flood

My apologies to those of you who aren’t fans of Facebook. PCD links to where the art appears and for many people around the world, increasingly FB is the easiest gallery to set up and maintain. I’ll try to give you all the info you need here and you can choose whether to explore further.

Do you have a suggestion about how to integrate Facebook so that it’s easier for readers? I’m listening. Leave me a comment.

      I love her button necklace–color with a darker edge!

        I assume from your comment about FB that people who do not have their own page can not follow that link? I have a suggestion for them. I have a FB page. I don’t “maintain” it nor do I check in on it often. But, with FB there are no rules saying you have to actually do anything with it. I let my friends and family know this and tell them that if they really want to contact me they know my email address so if there is something important they should contact me there. The benefit to having this page is that I can click on your “facebook” link and get to see what there is to see. I hope this helps those who have FB phobia.

          i have given up on keeping up with a web site. as much as i hate the social network concept, i finally have admitted that it is just the easiest way to present my work. im still getting to knowi, i’m learning slowly so i havent even posted descriptions etc yet.
          thanks.

            I find Facebook hard to follow sometimes with the polymer getting lost in the comments and links. In addition, there is not a lot of descriptive writing about the technique the person used and the pictures can’t always be blown up as big as they can on Flicker, for instance. A lot of people don’t want a page on Facebook or are not allowed to because of their jobs – like teachers believe it or not – so some people may not have choice about going to see what you have found on Facebook (I have a teacher friend who is not allowed to have a Facebook page).

              Jeanne, I had the same problem with Facebook posts getting lost until I started using the Interests feature. I created a category and added all my artist friends and the art-oriented pages I’ve “liked”; now I can filter to see only that topic. This link should get you started:

              https://www.facebook.com/bookmarks/interests

              I understand that it also makes sure that you see all the posts from the pages in your Interest categories, which is good since Facebook now limits the number of fans who see a page’s posts in their normal news feeds unless the page admin is willing to pay to promote certain posts.

              As long as they’re not using a computer system that blocks Facebook entirely, non-users should still be able to see Facebook content as long as the privacy setting for the profile or page is set to “Public.” I logged out to see what my business page looked like to someone not on Facebook, and all the photos were visible. Setting personal profiles to “Public” isn’t a good idea, but creating a separate page for art is easy.

                I loathe FB. I loathe the “You have friends waiting” spam, the stalkers it generates and the way it forces you to join in order to see stuff. If there was a way out – I would not have any FB presence.
