Calling All Artists:  The Trails End Festival Committee is extending an opportunity to artists who love the Katahdin region to create a poster for this year's festival.  The theme is a landscape without people, depicting Katahdin and incorporationg the idea of trails.  The original for the poster needs to be 17"x 11" in any medium in a vertical format and will be photographed at North Light Gallery for production into the poster.  The compensation for the winning image will be 50% of the amount from a raffle of the piece.  The piece will be displayed for 2 monthsbefore the festival during which time the raffle tickets will be sold. The actual drawing will happen during the peak of the festival at the bandstand.  Hopefully the artist can be present at the drawing.  The deadline for submission of an image is Friday, June 12th.    Bring or send work to North Light Gallery.  The Trails End Committee will pick the winner.  All works submitted will be on view at North Light Gallery and offered for sale at 50% commission. Good luck and make us something beautiful!
