The Delta Fine Arts and its member artists from around the region agreed to sponsor an AppleFest Poster fundraiser for the Cedaredge Area Chamber of Commerce this year.
The winning poster was created by artist Mary Key.
The public voted for a people's choice favorite during the Pops in the Park concert Sept. 5. There were more than a dozen entries by DFA member artists.
The winning poster and rights to its use are donated by the winning artist for the chamber's use. The original will be featured in a silent auction during the Golden Gala and also during the two days of AppleFest.
Key's painting is a fanciful creation with, of course, an apple as its central theme. A man with an umbrella, dubbed by one wag as "Harry Poppins," who appears to be dancing or celebrating atop a giant apple is actually a rendering of the artist's father, explained a chamber official.blog comments powered by Disqus
