Sierra Summer Festival opens poster competition

It’s always a big deal when the Sierra Summer Festival, in cooperation with Mammoth Gallery, opens its annual poster competition, and it’s open now.

The theme for this year is “The Sierra,” which is wide open enough. All artists submit works spanning the creative spectrum, and the 300 concert attendees—the concerts are Aug. 9-11 at St. Joseph’s—vote for their favorite.  Last year, photographer John Dittli won with an original photograph with special effects, entitled “Twin Lakes.”

Entry forms are available at and at Mammoth Gallery, 501 Old Mammoth Road.
