The Walter Anderson Museum of Art recently announced the WAMA Coastal Holiday Card Contest 2008. All artists throughout the Southeast are invited and encouraged to participate.
Walter Inglis Anderson had a love for nature that was not only apparent in his day to day life but most certainly in his art. Anderson referred to himself as an artist "more in love with nature than art," and easily portrays his ideals in all of his work.
Do you have a favorite memory of holidays on the coast? Perhaps a favorite coastal retreat you call home, joyfully decorated for the season. They want to see your ideas and share them with everyone that walks through the Walter Anderson Museum of Art.
All drawings, paintings (water color, oil, pastels, acrylics, etc.) must be two-dimensional and represent a Coastal Holiday. Photographs will not be accepted. The winning entries of four artists will be selected. The four designs chosen will be sold at the Walter Anderson Museum Store as a collector’s set and a percentage of sales will be shared with each artist.
The deadline for entry is July 15, 2008. Artists can get an application online at www.walterandersonmuseum.org or by calling the museum at (228) 872-3164 or by mail to: ATTN: Betsy Myers, The Walter Anderson Museum of Art, 510 Washington Avenue, Ocean Springs, MS 39564.
All mail-in entries must include a disc of artist’s work along with completed form. The collectors set will be printed and ready for the Peter Anderson Festival. For more information please contact Betsy Myers at (228) 872-3164.
