Repurposed retail trend attracts creative types, do-it-yourselfers

Repurposed retail trend attracts creative types, do-it-yourselfers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Pinterest, the online bulletin board site that allows users to post pictures of their favorite things or creations, has spawned a new category in retail.


“Home decor” and “DIY and crafts” are among the most popular categories, with pinners posting pictures of decor and apparel items they have created from art supplies and found objects.


And these mini works of art are inspiring others, sending a growing legion of shoppers out looking for items to utilize in their own creations (think furniture pieces with great lines that will become magical with just the right paint technique, or vintage clothing ready to be transformed). Those without a crafty bent are searching for one-of-a-kind objects already created.

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify

Curate Your Art Collection with Pictify | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Pictify is a new web-based curation service which allows you to put together, publish and share, visual art collection of any kind.

 

This is a great tool for those in love with art, as much as for those who need to organize, present and promote artists' work.

 

At Pictify, most curated collections are built around paintings, sculptures, photography and drawings created by users who are passionate about a specific artist, genre or historical time. 

 

But Pictify offers a tremendous opportunity to museums and art gallery owners, managers and curators, as it offers them an easy way to showcase their existing collections as well as upcoming ones.

 

From the official site: "As a gallery or museum you can feature your artists and the works in your collection on Pictify. You can show individual art works, preview an upcoming exhibition, and organise works in albums by artist or medium."

 

P.S.: Just like Kullect.com, Pictify is a specialized content curation service catering to a specific type of content and user interested in art. Much less generic than Pinterest, and much more focused on a specific area.

 

Expect more special-interest curation sites to emerge soon in other fields.


The service is free to use.
