In honor of Texas Wine Month, William Chris Vineyards (WCV) is excited to announce submissions for their 2018 Artist Blend label contest are open on Monday, October 1, 2018. Co-owners Bill Blackmon and Chris Brundrett see a connection between art and winemaking and the Artist Blend honors that connection. WCV Hye Society members choose a new label from a collection of art submitted in an open contest every year.
Ever since the first vintage label featuring work by Mary Ruth Blackmon, Bill’s mother, who was an artist by trade, this annual celebration of creativity has become a mainstay at William Chris.
Entries for the 2018 Artist Blend Label contest are accepted between October 1-20 via Instagram by using the hashtag #ArtistBlend18; follow and tag @WilliamChrisVineyards, then submit the official entry form online.
In addition to being featured on the 2018 Artist Blend label, the top 10 finalists will be able to display and sell prints of their work at a series of wine club events where members cast their votes for the winner. The winner will have the opportunity to fill the Hye Society lounge with their artwork to sell and perform live-painting at one of WCV’s spring events among many other perks, including a case of wine featuring their artwork.
