Katelyn Lehmann shows her winning entry for the 2021 Jazz & Beyond - Carson City Music and Art Festival poster contest.
The Jazz & Beyond festival committee announces that the winner of the 2021 poster and program cover art contest is Katelynn Lehmann.
Her design, “Listen to the Music,” was selected from nine entries to highlight the 18th annual Carson City music and art festival.
Lehmann is a 23-year-old artist completing her bachelor’s degree in graphic design. She moved to Northern Nevada from Southern California over a year ago and says she has greatly appreciated the change of scenery. She is focusing on the digital format and making art that meets marketing needs. More information is on her website katelynlehmannart.com.
“Jazz & Beyond celebrates the talent of our region," said festival committee co-chair David Bugli, president of the Mile High Jazz Band Association, producer of the festival. "Katelynn Lehmann’s poster design is an outstanding contribution to the festival.”
Jazz & Beyond will feature several free concerts at many Carson City venues. It opens with a Roaring ‘20s-themed party with bassist Scot Marshall’s Brass Knuckles band Aug. 13, outdoors at the Governor’s Mansion. The country-themed Day at the Silver Saddle Ranch will be Aug. 15. The festival will close with the Reno Jazz Orchestra on Aug. 29, at the Capital Amphitheater.
The festival will include a two-day Open Studios Tour, Aug. 21-22, with artists demonstrating their work at about a dozen locations. This year they include private studios, the Stewart Indian School Cultural Center and Museum, the Carson City Historical Society’s Carriage House, and on Sunday only, the historic Bliss Mansion.
The artists’ works will also be on display at the Nevada Artists Association Gallery, 449 W. King St., from Aug. 1 to Sept. 10, as part of the NAA Summer Show.
A schedule of events will be on the website JazzCarsonCity.com.
Annual Jazz & Beyond Festivals are presented by the Mile High Jazz Band Association and have been supported by grants from the Carson City Cultural Commission, the Nevada Arts Council and National Endowment for the Arts, and by private donations. For 2021, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development provided additional funding through its Nevada Pandemic Emergency Technical Support Grant.
