Open Call to Artists – Mother Goose Image

$500 cash prize

WOW 3 full sideWe are asking local Oceanside artists of all skill levels to submit their interpretation of a modern West Coast Oceanside Mother Goose for our new WOW bus.  The back drop is a deep sky blue.  We are looking for something whimsical and playful while not a large departure from a realistic image.  A few wee goslings surrounding her would add to the message we are trying to convey.

Message:  Singing and playing together, oral traditions and honouring children is imperative to healthy community.

Media: There is no restriction on media, it can be acrylic, watercolour, air brush, oils, pastels, pencil crayon, etc.

Size: minimum 40 x 40 inches, can be square or rectangle. The image will be photographed and converted to vector in order to create decal to adorn the bus that could be as large at 8 x 8 feet.

Winning selection will awarded a $500 prize and will be recognized in all of our promotions related to this Call for Submission.  The artist will retain their painting once all work is done.

OBLT reserves all rights to use the image for other public relation purposes such as logo generation, pamphlets, sandwich boards, etc.
