Since 1998 we have produced and shipped a catalog
which displays full pages of our major award-winning Endorsers' work, along with information about our complete line of American-made premium artist panels and other fine art supplies. This year will be no exception as we move forward in preparing one of our most exciting catalogs to date. More than a catalog of products, it is a catalogue of some of the finest artists in the country and their work, presented in a high-quality booklet format.
We have often fielded telephone calls inquiring how artists can become featured in our catalog as well as on our website as the "Featured Artist". Quite simply it is primarily based on national merit and the recognition our Endorsers have earned. And it is for this same reason that we have asked them to participate in helping to identify and ultimately reward the up and coming artists.
So, for the first time ever, we are accepting submissions for consideration to be showcased on the front cover of our catalog.
The contest is limited to oil, acrylic and pastel. You may enter as many paintings as you would like, or simply visit the Gallery to vote on your favorite works in the special contest Gallery section of our website. All submissions will be judged by some of the finest artists in the country. Ten finalists per month will be added to the pool of potential contest winners, and the judges will select the winning entries from that pool. All entries will be available for viewing in the SourceTek Gallery.
The contest will run for three months starting March 1, 2012 and ending May 31, 2012. Every month 10 finalists will be chosen. At the end of the three months, our panel of judges will review the Finalists' body of work and make their
IMPORTANT DATE: Entries must be submitted by the last day of the month to be eligible for that month's review and selection as a Finalist.
