Call to Artists / Opportunites

Call to Artists: 

Fellow NAA Artists,
We have been invited to participate again this year in the Jazz and Beyond Music Festival by providing artwork for the program, posters, and flyers.  The artwork is to be submitted by May 22, the decision for the program, etc. by May 24, and the selected artwork printed by June 1.  Finished artwork should be placed in a plastic sleeve with a mat board backing and taken to the NAA Gallery with a note addressed to Marla Miles and placed in the front of the vertical storage bin in the backroom.
Please submit a 17 x 22 inch poster image in portrait orientation in any media.  Leave a 7 x 5 inch area for the logo overlay and copy in any quadrant of your artwork.
The Jazz Festival overlay will be applied when the piece is sent to the printer. Mike Ulrich was the 2016 winner.

Jazz and Beyond Winner

Please contact Marla Miles at 775-671-5235 if you have any questions.   NAA participation was very successful last year and I hope we do as well this year.
This is a great opportunity for recognition and publicity for your work as an artist.  The Jazz and Beyond music festival has gained in popularity over the years and it is an honor to be invited to participate.  An honorarium is awarded to the winner(s).
