PSC Ad in SW Art
February 25, 2015
If you are not currently on the list of those participating in this ad, please contact Sue McKelvy before entering your payment to be sure there is room for your ad in the page/spread.

PSC is very happy that you have chosen to participate in the Southwest Art Magazine's ad which is sponsored by our pastel Society. We have 18 people who have agreed to provide a painting for the 2-page spread. We plan to have 9 paintings shown per page and hope to provide the artist's name, title of the work, size, and website or e-mail contact information on each image submitted. Jeannette Stutzman of Acme Graphic Design and a PSC member has graciously agreed to do the professional layout for us for submission.

The price for each of you is $230. Any additional costs above that to cover the cost of the ad is being subsidized by PSC. We believe this is a great opportunity to tout our fabulous artists within our organization on the pages of a national magazine that is sent out monthly to thousands of subscribers and potential collectors. We plan to advertise our upcoming exhibits and shows such as the Mile High International Exhibition, our Members Show and the Signature Artists exhibit that are scheduled or proposed for this coming year. The ad should be in the July 2015 issue of Southwest Art. That magazine edition is usually sent out in mid-June. The magazine has agreed to write an editorial on PSC and the Mile High Exhibit in the same issue or a subsequent issue which effectively doubles our exposure to their readers.

What we need from you!

1. We will need you to submit payment to PSC for $230 by March 31, 2015. You can use Paypal on our website: www.pastelsocietyofcolorado.org, or send a check to Dawn Buckingham Goldsmith, Treasurer, P.O. Box 9361, Denver, CO 80209.

2. We need you to e-mail an image of your painting you want to showcase in the ad to Jeannette Stutzman at news@pastelsocietyofcolorado.org on or before April 15, 2015. The image should be attached to an e-mail and sized at 300 pixels per inch with 4 inches or 1200 pixels on the longest dimension being maximum. The image should not have matting, framing or borders showing. Please put your name, the title of the painting, its size and your contact information (website or e-mail), if you wish, in the body of the e-mail.

3. We suggest you review your current body of work and choose the strongest piece for this exposure. It does not have to be one you are considering submitting to this year's Mile High Exhibition for example, but can be one from your recent efforts that you particularly like.

The Pastel Society of Colorado has some powerful painters and we are proud to present our artists and their works!
