For the first time in the Festival in the Park’s 38 years, a limited edition poster has been created as a fundraiser for The Matthews’ children’s programming.
Support Kids’ Programming
Only 125 posters have been printed for 2015. The original art work, an 18″ x 24″ acrylic and ink painting, was created by artist, Jayne Rose. Jayne is also marketing manager for The Matthews.
“The idea of doing a hand drawn and painted poster came to me after going to a presentation by Jay Ryan in Rapid City. Jay is a very well know silk screen artist based in Chicago. What can I say? He inspired me to step away from my day-to-day graphic design work at The Matthews and do something more fun and whimsical,” say artist, Jayne Rose. “This experience is taking my art into another direction with my oil and acrylic painting techniques.”
The 12.25″ x 17.25″ full color prints are all numbered and signed by the artist. Cost is $20 (plus tax) per print and includes a signed certificate of authenticity. Proceeds will benefit The Matthews’ programming, and in particular, children’s programming for future years.
Posters are available at The Matthews’ Art Gallery and will also be available for purchase during Festival in the Park at the Information Booth and The Matthews’ booth #136.
