A panel of judges has selected three finalists from the many logos submitted by North Shore artists. The winning design will be selected by public voting, and it will be featured on all logo products that symbolize the 50th Marblehead Festival of Arts.
From November 22 through December 14, the public will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite logo at the following Marblehead locations: Arnould Gallery & Framery, Acorn Gallery, The Landing Restaurant, Marblehead Arts Association, Warwick Place, Marblehead Bank, National Grand Bank, Shubie’s Market Place, Abbot Public Library, Marblehead Community Center, the Lynch/van Otterloo YMCA, the Jewish Community Center of the North Shore, and Atomic Café; and in Salem at Front Street Coffee House and Salem Cinema. The public also will have an opportunity to vote at Artisans’ Marketplace to be held at Abbot Hall during Christmas Walk weekend.
The public is invited to celebrate with us and meet the winning artist, who will be introduced and honored during the Logo Premiere Party at The Landing Restaurant in Marblehead on January 20, 2015. Bring friends, have dinner, see the new logo, and view logo products from the past—some of which will be available for purchase on the Web site at a later date.
The judges for this year’s contest were Gene Arnould, owner of the Arnould Gallery and Framery and creator of the annual Painting-the-Town plein aire event; Kristen Nyberg, owner of Nyberg Design, who holds a BFA from UArts in Philadelphia and has over 20 years of experience working as a designer and project manager in the architectural signage industry; and Peter Schalk, educated at Mass Art and the Art Institute of Boston, and presently owner and chief designer at Flat Rock Creative.
