EXTENDED DUE DATE TO JESSICA KENNEDY IS MONDAY, MARCH 18TH
You may have noticed our new temporary logo, created lovingly as a temporary solution, by none other than Karen Wheeler. For many years now, the “Vegas Artists’ Guild” had a logo that, at the time of its creation, epitomized the group in the manner of their choosing.
As many of us are aware, the overuse of the artwork -which was never paid for if I understand the story correctly- of the “Fabulous Las Vegas sign” is something that has become synonymous with passé. How many trade shows come to town and thinking themselves clever, use the Las Vegas sign in their artwork? (If you don’t know the answer, its over half of them) How many times each day are you in visual contact with this symbol? Probably enough that you barely notice it now.
That’s part of the issue. The rest of the issue is that the Guild has changed. We are a diversified group of artists, many professionals and representative of many different media and artistic stylings, including our appreciators of art who just come to our meetings and support our organization because they understand the importance art plays in our society. This change is nothing but wonderful! We want to celebrate it with you.
What’s the best way to move forward into the next phase of the Guild?
A LOGO CONTEST of course!
1. Participants must be LVAG members in good standing.
2. NO electronic submissions will be allowed although you are welcome to use vector art and print out your masterpiece.
3. NO original art pieces may be submitted (it needs to be YOUR art but not YOUR original, a copy is what we are after here)
4. ALL artwork must be 8” x 8” and printed on standard white 8.5” x 11” paper and submitted in person.
5. NO names will be on your art. We will assign you a number when you drop off your art for submission.
This contest will be judged by professionals at Canyon Creative who are sponsoring the contest.
What do you get if you win?
You will get a $100 Desert Art Supply Gift Certificate; your name and photo in the next issue of eARTh as well as a link to your website all year long with creative credit for the logo being given to you, and you will receive a t-shirt with your logo centered on the full chest. (10” x 10”;).
Bring your submissions to the February Mixer and more dates for submissions will be revealed there onsite on February 11, 2013.
