The winning artist will also have the opportunity to display and sell their work at the Angel Fire Community Center throughout the festival.
The submitted work must have been completed in the last two years and artists are invited to submit artwork created in 2D or 3D, including painting (any medium), photography, pottery and sculpture. A $20 non-application fee is required.
Deadline for submission is March 25, 2016. Full details for art submission can be found online at www.musicfromangelfire.org/artcompetition.
