Calling all artists!
Saturday, October 20th
What lights you up about our city? Is it the swirling texture of sandstone or the bright lights of Las Vegas' famous skyline? How do you define Spirit of Las Vegas? Skye Canyon's second annual chalk art competition’s theme is Spirit of Las Vegas and artists are invited to participate in this unique event during Chalktober Fest, a fall art festival on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, at Skye Canyon Park. There is no fee to enter, but the contest is limited to 45 artists.
Don't miss this opportunity to contribute to a colorful collection of work that illustrates the many interpretations of Spirit of Las Vegas.WHO:
The contest is open to both professional and amateur artists who will compete in three categories:
- High School Student
- $250 for First Place
- $100 for Second Place
- $50 for Third Place
- $500 Award for One Overall Winner in the People's Choice Award
Saturday, October 20th, artist check-in is 9 to 11 a.m. Work must be completed by 4 p.m. Artists will be assigned a station to work and will receive a set of water-based pastels. (Artists can also bring their own supplies.) A jury of local art aficionados will judge contestants work, and winners will be announced at 5:15 p.m.
Registration is open now through September 20.
Exhibit Your Work at the Art Fair!
Because this is a fall festival, Skye Canyon is offering artists the chance to show off and sell their wares. Thirty 10 x 10 booths are available to artists of all mediums for no charge. This pop-up vendor village will include all mediums such as paint, sketch, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, and photography, and more. Artists do not have to compete in the chalk art competition to be considered for a vendor booth. The deadline for booth consideration is September 20, and those interested can apply here.
