Mile High Band Association’s 2021 Jazz & Beyond Festival Committee is sponsoring an art contest for Northern Nevada 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. Festival T-shirts this year may also feature the winning design. The entry deadline is April 1. Participation is free. 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 and Art Festival and a cash award of $100. Alexander Cassimus, art project chair, said, “The artist’s work will be front and center, viewed by thousands of festival patrons.” Entry forms are available for download from milehighjazz.com/artcontest2021.pdf Artwork must be 11 inches by 14 inches and may be in any two-dimensional medium (photography, digital collage and photography, watercolor, acrylic, oil, etc.). Artwork must be matted, backed and submitted in a protective sleeve. Each submission must include the entry form. Artists are to deliver their entries to the Nevada Artists Association Gallery, 449 W. King St., Carson City, by April 1. Gallery hours are noon-4 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
