As I write this, the rain clouds have parted, at least temporarily, and I'm dreaming of the summer that will eventually come and the 2015 Proctor Arts Fest, held on the first Saturday of August each year, in Tacoma's Proctor Business District. In 2015, the date will be Aug. 1.
The colorful salmon image above, created by artist Janet Stiles, was last year's winner in the annual poster contest to promote this popular event. Maybe this time next year, I'll be writing another blog post showing YOUR design. All artists are eligible, not just those in Tacoma, although the policy now is that previous winners may not enter again.
Being featured on Good Life Northwest would only be a minor bit of glory compared with having your image spread around on billboards, posters, T-shirts, and other possible media. Imagine the thrill of winning a $500 purchase award and bringing widespread attention to your talents.
For complete information on this contest, please click here. Entries must be submitted by April 15, 2015, so get busy creating your own unique design that reflects the spirit of a summer arts festival. (My advice? think SUN! We need some.) Good luck.
Please "like" Good Life Northwest on Facebook, and do share this post with artists you know!
