Soroptimists seek artists

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 will be prominently displayed at the 2015 Gala Garden Show and at other public events earlier in the year. The artist or photographer also will be offered a free vendor booth at the 2015 Garden Show.
