My poster is an invitation to both artists and patrons. The woman in the painting is the embodiment of Summerfair. She welcomes you to the event with a smile as she holds her art supplies, suggesting the excitement and possibilities to be experienced just around the bend. I worked with watercolor to illustrate a dreamy visual quality that engages the viewer. The saturated variety of colors showcases the warmth of summer and the energy that flows from this event. My love of the Art Nouveau movement combined with modern illustration style, exemplifies the artistic celebration that is Summerfair.
"I was shocked and extremely excited when I found out I had won the poster competition," said Loveland High School graduate, Hannah Graff.
Graff has just won one of the most prestigous art competition in the mid-west. Her painting has been selected as the poster for SummerFair 2014.
Graff said, "I always look forward to Summerfair and love seeing all the amazing art work. Coney Island is such a great setting for the event and creates a sort of world around you that is full of creativity and beauty."
