Call to artists

For many years, Carbondale Arts has held a poster contest for artists to submit their creative renderings of a poster based on the theme for that year. This year Carbondale Arts and Mountain Fair will take a new approach that allows the organization and artist to work together to create a final rendering of a design that highlights the artist’s work, while also fulfilling Mountain Fair’s graphic design limitations and needs. This year’s theme is water, and artists are invited to submit a rough sketch of their poster’s design as well as a two work samples. A jury will select an artist and we will work with the artist to create the final poster. The chosen artist will receive $650 and five T-shirts. The deadline is March 20. All submissions can be submitted digitally to or can be delivered to Carbondale Arts’ office at The Launchpad at 76 S. Fourth St, Carbondale, CO 81623. All physical entries must have the artist’s name, email and phone number on each entry (poster sketch and work samples). For more information or questions please contact Amy Kimberly at or 970-963-1680.
