Arts Fair conducting area contest

Thursday, August 19, 2010

ROCKVILLE -- The Covered Bridge Art Association will sponsor its first juried Fine Arts Fair, scheduled for Saturday, June 25, 2011, on the historic Rockville Courthouse Square.

Titled, "Art Affair on the Square," in Rockville, the purpose is to celebrate the arts in Parke County in a setting of beauty that calls people from across the nation to visit.

With that basic information in mind, the art association is encouraging anyone interested to design a logo for the Art Affair, which will be used by them on all mailings, new releases, advertising and printed materials of any kind.

Those submitting entries for the contest should be aware that the logo becomes the property of the Art Association, while giving the artist full recognition of the work.

To better understand the juried art fair, artists need to be aware that Fine Art Categories will be Pottery, Enamel, Glass, Metal, Wood, Mixed Media, Oil, Watercolor, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Textile, Fiber as well as Fine Jewelry and Skilled Crafts.

The fair will also include a children's area with crafts, fun and games, find foods and herbs and plants of the unusual variety. A variety of music will be provided for those attending throughout the day.

The contest will highlight the art work of any resident of Parke County or the entire country.

The logo should be designed so that it might be easily replicated and be submitted on unlined paper or disk. It may be submitted either in black and white or in color. If the logo design is generated on computer, it should be saved either in a TIFF or in JPEG format so it can be easily used.

The logo should include the name of the juried event "Art Affair on the Square," Rockville, Ind., and the date of June 25, 2011.

Winners will be determined by representatives of the Art Association and the Committee for the Arts Affair on the Square and the prize is a $200 savings bond.

Logos must be submitted by Sept. 30, 2010, in order to be considered. Submissions will be returned only if a stamped, self-addressed envelope is enclosed.

Submit art work entries to "Art Affair on the Square," 302 Anderson St., Rockville, Ind., 47872, or e-mail mmoore@indcomm.net.
