My 2017 poster for the Cheesman Park Fine Art Festival was entered into the Sunshine Artist Magazine's annual poster contest by the wonderful promoter's of the show, Liz and her family at Dash Events.
Every year, Sunshine Artist Magazine gets hundreds of entries into their poster contest from art festivals all over the United States. I'm so honored to be chosen as this year's poster winner for best layout and presentation. I was a graphic designer for about 20 years, so it's nice to be recognized for my fine art and graphic design skills in this way with such a respected art show magazine. This poster was modified from my Cheesman Park artwork which was originally created on illustration board in gouache. Prints of my artwork are available for sale in six sizes.
I had no idea that my poster was entered until some fellow artists pointed this article out to me after publication. What a wonderful surprise! I wanted to give a big thank you to Liz, Dash events, and Sunshine Artist Magazine for this lovely recognition.
