Assuming that the logo doesn't make use of ArtWorks features like
transparency etc. or contain bitmaps, one solution that I find works
very well is to save as Draw, then convert the file into a .wmf with
Sherston Software's excellent !Draw2WMF program (£10.00).

I know .wmf is not a great format, but for relatively straightforward
lgos it works fine, imho.
