Deadline: February 1, 2019
The Spirit of the West Cowboy Gathering event committee would like to invite all Northwest artists to submit their western-themed artwork to be considered for the 2020 Spirit of the West poster. Each President’s Day weekend, the Spirit of the West Cowboy Gathering in Ellensburg brings together the best cowboy musicians, singers, poets, artists, crafts people, cooks and horsemen in an effort to provide a window into the rich western traditions of ranching and the cowboy life. Artwork submitted should depict this theme of pioneer values and western heritage that are the Spirit of the West. Judging will be done by the Spirit of the West event committee with the winning artwork being presented to the general public at the 2019 Spirit of the West Cowboy Gathering during the Western Gear and Art Show on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Kittitas Valley Event Center. All judged artwork, except winning art, will be returned to the artist after final judging is completed. Winner receives $250, a free 10x10 vendor booth to display and sell their artwork at the 2020 Spirit of the West Cowboy Gathering and the privilege of their artwork representing the 2020 Spirit of the West Cowboy Gathering for all advertising.
