Each entry fee supports Arts Council Programs
The 34th Annual Messina Hof Texas Artist Wine Label Competition is the centerpiece for the 40th Annual Wine & Roses Festival on Saturday, April 27. This year, artists are invited to depict the theme of “SYMMETRY.”
The Artist Competition has been a part of Messina Hof’s Wine & Roses Festival since 1986 and has continued to foster a connection between Texas art and winemaking for thirty-four years. The honor of winning the Artist Competition is decided by the wonderful people attending this long-standing festival. The winning artwork is then transformed into a wine label that will be showcased in Messina Hof’s expansive and highly awarded wine portfolio. The name of the artist and artwork will be featured on the back of each bottle.
In partnership with the Arts Council of Brazos Valley, Messina Hof aims to support local Texas artists and give back to the arts community. Each entry fee is donated to the Arts Council to fund local programs that further young artists’ passion and careers.
The Top Finalists are applicants chosen to submit physical artwork for the competition and will receive:
• An invitation to display and sell artwork at the Wine & Roses Festival on April 27, 2024, at the Messina Hof Estate Winery in Bryan, with a complimentary table.
• A pair of tickets to attend Messina Hof’s annual 2024 Harvest Festival in August.
The top three winners will receive cash prizes, recognition on Messina Hof’s social media platforms, and a certificate for a Private Tour & Tasting for 10 people at any of Messina Hof’s four winery locations.
The first place winner will, in addition to the above, have their artwork displayed on select Messina Hof wine labels, along with name of the artist and title of the piece; have their artwork permanently displayed in the Messina Hof Gallery among previous winners; and receive a personal invitation to Messina Hof’s Harvest Grand Finale Dinner in August 2024, where the winning artwork will be officially presented to the public.
Artists must reside in Texas and be 21 years of age or older. The deadline to apply is March 15th, 2024.
