From Ellie Staley, Program Director at the Downtown Bozeman Partnership:
Local artists in the Bozeman & Big Sky area have a rare and exciting opportunity to depict the tourist appeal qualities of this area at an Art Show this winter that is being sponsored by Discovery Map of Bozeman & Big Sky (see this pdf flyer). In an unprecedented event, semi-professional and professional artists are invited to create paintings, drawings, and other artistic renderings of this magnificent visitor destination. The 1st-place winner will have their artwork displayed on the cover of the upcoming edition of the Discovery Map of Bozeman & Big Sky and on the Discovery WebMap!
I am attaching a flyer for your review and posting that outlines the details of this Art Show. With the premium quality art featured on Discovery Map and the rich arts heritage in this area, this alliance between Discovery Map of Bozeman & Big Sky and the local arts community is a natural partnership.
The Art Show Awards Reception is scheduled to be held at The Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture on Feb. 28 in the ballroom.
[Ed. note: the submission deadline is February 15.]
Update: Congratulations to the winners: Richard Jensen (1st place), Linda Abbott (2nd), and Marsha Karle (3rd)!
