Mugs to feature Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Chapel

(Seguin) — The 2022 Sip n’ Stroll Committee and the Seguin Main Street Program invite local artists to submit artwork of Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church’s historic chapel to be featured on the 2022 Sip n’ Stroll mug.  The artwork should be an original piece and all mediums are welcome to be submitted. The artwork should fit a rectangle measuring 8” width x 4” height or a ratio similar to 2:1. 

“This will be the 12th Sip ‘n Stroll and each year the mug features a different Seguin landmark. Previous years, the mug has featured the pecan, The First Church, Sebastopol House, the Aumont, and the Texas Theatre,” said Kyle Kramm, Seguin Main Street and CVB Director, “The committee decided to feature our historic churches over the next few years, last year’s First Church was chosen, with this year’s to feature Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, located at 201 East Nolte Street.”

St. Andrew’s was founded in Seguin in 1853.  The original St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church building was completed in 1876. In the century following, changes and additions included construction of a vestibule and sacristy, exterior surfacing of limestone, and reconstruction of the bell tower.

All artists are welcome to participate with all interpretations of the subject considered. The artwork can be from any period of the chapel’s history. The artwork should be submitted to the Seguin Main Street office at 116 N. Camp Street by Friday, July 15.  Contact Christy Hopper at (830) 401-2475 to confirm drop off time. The 2022 Sip ‘n Stroll Committee will judge the submissions and select the artwork.

The chosen artwork will be featured on over 1,000 mugs, featured in press releases, new articles and shared across social media platforms.  The artist will also be invited to be present at Pecan Fest on October 29 where the sale of the 2022 Sip n’ Stroll mug will be launched. The selected artist will also receive a $100 stipend.
