Featured artist/photographer sought for gala


Soroptimist International of Sequim is seeking artists and photographers who wish to have an original creation selected as the featured artwork for the 17th Annual Gala Garden Show to be held in March 2015.

Each year an original work, donated by a local artist or photographer, is chosen to be the Garden Show logo. The logo is featured on marketing and publicity materials throughout the year. The artwork also is the centerpiece of a major raffle held the last day of the show.

The selected artwork is prominently displayed at the 2015 Gala Garden Show and at other public events earlier in the year. The artist or photographer also is offered a free vendor booth at the 2015 Garden Show. More than 2,000 people attended the event in 2014.

Proceeds from the annual Gala Garden Show help fund many Sequim Soroptimist projects that benefit women and girls in local communities.

Deadline for entry is June 1.

The subject of artwork submissions must be garden-related.

Art forms eligible include sculpture, photography, paintings and drawings of all mediums (oil, watercolor, pencil, pen, acrylic, chalk), computer and digital art/visual and graphic design.

Finished size of paintings, drawings, photographs or computer and digital artwork must be no smaller than 8 inches by 10 inches and no larger than 18 inches by 24 inches.

For application forms or information, call Cindy Rhodes, 2015 Gala Garden Show artwork coordinator, at 683-5388, or e-mail
