Jazz fest seeks submissions from Carson City area artists

Nevada Appeal staff report

Artist Bob Hickox shows his winning painting, used for the cover of the 2018 Jazz & Beyond program.

Mile High Band Association’s 2019 Jazz and Beyond Festival Committee is sponsoring an art contest for Carson-Tahoe area artists. Selected entries in the competition may be used to promote the festival, and the winning entry will be featured on the festival’s advertising poster and program cover. A T-shirt may also feature one of the designs submitted. The entry deadline is May 15.

The artwork will be judged by the Jazz & Beyond committee. The winner of the competition will receive a certificate of appreciation from the Jazz & Beyond-Carson City Music Festival and a cash award of $100. Cyndy Brenneman, art project chair, said, “The artist’s work will also be front and center, viewed by thousands of festival patrons.”

Entries must be 11 inches x 14 inches and may be in any two dimensional medium (photography, digital collage and photography, watercolor, acrylic, oil, etc.). All entries must be matted, backed, and submitted in a protective sleeve.

Each submission must include the entry form and a digital image of the artwork as an email attachment to info@jazzcarsoncity.com, or on a CD or thumb drive. It may also be submitted by Drop Box to info@jazzcarsoncity.com

Artists are to drop off their entries at the Nevada Artists Association Gallery, 449 West King Street, Carson City by May 15. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
