Winner chosen for Historic Yellow Springs Art Show Poster Competition
The 2019 Historic Yellow Springs (HYS) Art Show committee has chosen the winner for the 2019 Poster Competition “Plein Air Day at Yellow Springs” by Christopher Lanser. This winning Acrylic will be featured on all of the promotional materials for the 2019 HYS Art Show. Invitations, note cards, billboards and flyers will incorporate this art work.
Titled, “Plein Air Day at Yellow Springs,” it is a whimsical view of the HYS Village stopped in time. Look closely and you can see Lanser’s detail of Historic Yellow Springs, the artists and it’s visitors! It truly captures excitement and energy of all the happenings at the Village. This will be 15th year that the Poster Competition has determined the HYS Art Show Poster. The subject matter must include some reference to Historic Yellow Springs. This would include any part of the village, the grounds, the people, or the history. The competition was open to all of the participating 2019 HYS Art Show artists, with nearly 30 artists submitting pieces.
Art Show Chair, Maureen Fendrick, is excited and pleased with the piece. She said, “We are thrilled with the winning poster for the 2019 Yellow Springs Art Show. Christopher Lanser has beautifully captured our charming and historic village. His style of painting lends itself well to depicting a bygone era. This is a truly captivating image which will represent our show so well in promoting our exciting spring tradition. “
Artist Christopher Lanser stated how pleased he is to be named the Poster Artist for 2019. “It is very exciting and a great honor to have my painting chosen to represent HYS for the 2019 Art Show! It is a joy to find people who appreciate your work and doubly to have that work support a great venue like HYS! Many thanks to everyone at HYS!.”
The 2019 HYS Art Show opens with a gala reception on Friday evening, April 26, where the original painting will be sold by silent auction. The Art Show is open free to the public on Saturday, April 27, through May 12.
