The Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance announced today that submissions for artwork for the 2007 25th Annual Paso Robles Wine Festival are now being accepted for review by the 2007 Paso Robles Wine Festival Committee. Additionally, the Web site www.pasowine.com offers interested artists an opportunity to learn more about the submission process and download an artist syllabus. One piece of artwork will be selected to become the flagship artwork for the 2007 Paso Robles Wine Festival, scheduled for May 19, 2007. This is an open call to all artists, with a $500 commission available.
"The local art community is such a great contributor and complement to our industry," said Wine Country Alliance Executive Director Stacie Jacob.

There is so much talent in our area; we can hardly wait to see the submission for this special celebration."
