Chesapeake Chamber Music (CCM) invites local artists to submit original artwork for use as the poster image for the 2013 Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival. The selected artwork will be used on the Festival’s publicity materials, including the Festival poster, flyers, print and online advertising, event programs and the CCM website. Posters will be placed throughout the Eastern Shore during the spring, especially during the months of April and May preceding the June Festival, and the image will be featured in both local and national publications to promote the Festival. The selected work will be auctioned at the CCM Gala on March 2, 2013. The artist will be compensated for his or her work. The Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival will be held in various Mid-Shore locations from June 5 through June 18, 2013.
Chesapeake Chamber Music is looking for artwork that will promote the Festival, emphasizing the beauty of the Eastern Shore as an appropriate setting for beautiful music.
