Sunriver Music Festival Offers Call to Artists

Sunriver Music Festival invites a Central Oregon artist to create the commemorative 45th season poster.

“For over four decades we have showcased some of the most accomplished artists in the region and the collaboration is a beautiful experience for all involved,” explains Executive Director Meagan Iverson.

Artist Kenneth Marunowski, 2018 poster artist, agrees. “Signing the gorgeous prints made from my image, and attending two of the brilliant Festival concerts was an absolute delight. During this exciting moment in my artistic life, I truly felt connected to the Sunriver community and like something of a star.”

Sharon Engel, 2017 poster artist, shares similar thoughts. “Working with such a professional team to create the Sunriver Music Festival poster was a wonderful experience. I had the fun of painting the image, they made it into a beautiful poster for a great venue.”

David Kreitzer, poster artist for 2020-2021: “To have my art be chosen, and to be on the cover of the Sunriver Magazine as well, was a great ‘Welcome to Central Oregon’ gift. Sunriver Music Festival was very supportive and I was pleased to be a part of it!”

Here’s your opportunity to join the ranks of these and other esteemed artists by submitting your artwork to the selection committee, which is comprised of a jury of accomplished artists from the Artists Gallery Sunriver.

The only requirement on medium and size is that it is able to be reproduced successfully into an 18×24 poster. Works larger than 18×24 are not recommended. You can view past posters at sunrivermusic.org and at the Festival office in the Village at Sunriver, Building 13.
