2019 Artists Catalog and Website Sponsorships
The South Carolina Watermedia Society will have its annual meeting and art exhibit in fall 2019. This event will also bring art guilds from across the area participate in some way with the various events surrounding the exhibit. Therefore, this will be a huge community-wide effort, which will bring nationally recognized art and artists to our area!
Our budget is approximately $20,000, with half of this going towards cash awards for the artists. Thirty awards are chosen from the approximate 75 to 100 paintings exhibiting in the show. These paintings comprise a traveling show facilitated by the SC State Museum. The show will travel all over the state of South Carolina, giving more opportunities to these artists for their work to be seen. We have already received donations and grants from local individuals, businesses, foundations and local art organizations. But we still need help! We are in need of advertisers for our color catalog, which features all the winning paintings, as well as a full membership roster of the artists in our organization. These 5,000 catalogs are distributed to all artists in our organization, every tourist and community member who comes to see the show, and all 12 venues that host the traveling show throughout the year. Those 12 venues in turn give a copy of the catalog to everyone who sees the show at their facility. We also send these catalogs to colleges and universities throughout the state as a teaching tool. We would love to see your business advertised in our catalog. Further specs may be emailed to you for clarification, but general availability in the full color catalog is as follows:
- $500 for a full page ad, measuring 6” x 9”
- $250 for a ½ page ad, measuring 6” x 4.5” or 3” x 9”
Artists Catalog and Website Sponsorships
Not only will your ad be in our catalog AND your name on our website, these catalogs are kept by members of our organization as a reference for years, and distributed throughout the state with the traveling show. So, your advertising lasts long after the show is over.
The SC Watermedia Society is very important to the cultural aspects of our state, and we are working hard to gain momentum back from the recent hard economic times. Your help is greatly appreciated!
