2018 A Taste of Ashland Poster Competition

Apologies for the short notice!! The AGA just got this to us yesterday morning, and catching up after dealing with a death in our immediate family caused us to add more to the delay. We sincerely apologize!! However, it does look like they are happy to consider already completed paintings to consider for their 2018 A Taste of Ashland Poster, so if you’re not one of those blazing fast painters, why not spend a quiet evening or tomorrow morning sorting through your portfolio, then submit your best work by the end of the day for a chance to get the local promotion of a lifetime. Here are the details:

Ashland Gallery Association
2018 A Taste of Ashland Poster Competition

The Ashland Gallery Association is seeking artwork for its 2018 A TASTE OF ASHLAND event. Local artists are encouraged to submit images of their work. AGA Gallery, Associate, and Neighboring Arts Organization members may also submit images for artists they represent.

The winner will be publicized in the Ashland Gallery Guide, the ‘Taste’ Event Guide, on the AGA website, and on ‘Taste’ promotional materials including the poster, postcard, maybe T-shirts and/or tote bags.

The Ashland Gallery Guide is distributed to about 12,000 patrons of the arts each year. The Event Guide is distributed to about 3,000.

Submission deadline: December 5, 2017. The poster art will be selected at the December 12, 2017 AGA Membership meeting at Ashland Art Center. The meeting will begin at 6:30 and members will vote on the submissions. Winners will be notified shortly after this meeting.

Submission address:

Routing: send by email to AGA Administrator, Kim Olson: [email protected]

IMPORTANT: The artwork submissions must have a theme related to food or wine. See to view last year’s image.
The ATOA committee is seeking strong, colorful and broadly appealing images – ones that convey a feeling of joy and fun with friends, and the feeling of “Come to Ashland for great food, wine and art.”  The submissions don’t have to be literal depictions of food and wine, although they can!
Thanks so much for submitting your work.  A Taste of Ashland is the AGA’s annual fundraising effort and a themed image is important for marketing the event.

Additional Submission Guidelines:

– One image may be submitted per artist.
– Submit by email in one of the following files types: JPG (preferred), GIF, TIFF, or PDF (Files not in one of these formats will not be guaranteed to be part of the selection)
– Submissions must be medium-to-high resolution, and must include the artist’s name, phone number, mailing address, and email address.
– Images should be in color and no more than 10MB in size (anything larger will be rejected by the mail server).
– Artwork may be existing or created specifically for the “Taste”.
– Any art medium that can be photographed and printed is eligible.
– The winning artist will be responsible for providing a high-quality image for the printer.
– Any artist who has already been honored becomes eligible to submit again after an interval of five years.

The winning poster artist grants the AGA the right to reproduce his/her artwork for the poster and for publicity of A Taste of Ashland. All proceeds from the promotional use of the image will benefit A Taste of Ashland. The Artist will be credited, where possible, on promotional materials using his/her image.

We look forward to your submission!
