PINEDALE – For the second year in a row, artist Mae Orm’s original design “Rainbow Ninja” is selected as one of eight finalists for the 2023 Jackson Hole Still Works “Spirit of Wyoming” Vodka Label Art Competition.
Orm only found out about the honor on Friday, Jan. 6, and voting for the contest winner ends at 6:45 p.m. Friday, Jan. 13.
“Time to vote,” she said. “I need your vote to win!”
The seventh annual art contest is a fundraiser for the Wyoming Arts Council. Votes are $5 each and only one vote is allowed per person. The artwork with the most votes wins the honor of being the exclusive Jackson Hole Still Works’ vodka bottle label for one year.
The grand-prize artist also wins $2,000. Once the grand prize winner is selected by the voting public, it will be entered into a silent auction on the Jackson Hole Still Works’ website for two weeks. The remaining seven runner-up pieces will be offered for sale at the artists’ discretion to further benefit the Wyoming Arts Council.
Along with Orm’s “Rainbow Ninja,” the seven finalists are Sonja Johansen of Thermopolis, Brooke Mack of Gillette, James Overstreet of Cheyenne, Cassidty Post of Alpine, Leslie Schafer of Lander, Ryan Stolp of Jackson and Brenda Swinney of Victor, Idaho
Jackson Hole Still Works Vodka is a 100-percent Wyoming-made small batch vodka. It is handmade from scratch with non-GMO corn from the distillery’s farmer in Riverton and organic oats from Powell.
