This competition is part of the annual Lubbock Arts Festival, July 24-25, 2021, and is open to all artists working in any fine art media. The Lubbock Arts Festival is a project of the Lubbock Arts Alliance, Inc.

JUROR: Jon Revett

is an artist and educator living and working in Canyon, TX. Born in Germany and spending his formative years in Austin, he then moved to the Texas Panhandle. There he experienced his creative genesis on a trip to Robert Smithson’s Amarillo Ramp, an earthwork that he has now spent 25 years investigating. He was the primary organizer for the Yellow City Art Gallery from 1999-2001, and a member of the Dynamite Museum in the mid-90s, as well as being the keyboardist in a few Amarillo rock bands. Revett remains an active painter and shows regularly. He has completed residencies at Slade College of Art in London, Panik Studios in Mexico City, and at Mariposa Eco-Village just outside Amarillo. He is currently the Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at West Texas A&M University.
