2014 Art Poster Contest
We Have a Winner!
Aliza Alkoby is the winning artist of the 2014 Art Poster Contest. Primarily done in oil, the mixed media piece depicts a garlic braid mixed with beautiful greens and tied to a fence post at the edge of a soft-focused field of row crop with rolling hills in the background. Alkoby is a past poster contest winner, taking Second Place in 2013.
Alkoby’s poster will be reproduced and retailed for $10 at this year’s Festival held on July 25-27.
Second Place was awarded to Julie Franco of Gilroy, who also received the same honor in 2001; and Third Place went to Cory Still of Gilroy.
A total of 16 entries were received. The Second and Third Place winning posters along with 8 others selected by the jury will be displayed in the People Choice competition, where festival-goers can vote for their favorite entry. The additional 8 artists include Maria Hullum, Diana Moran, Priscilla Martinez, Izumi Kurokawa, Ruth Johnson Irving, Jonathan Sheets, Whitney Pintello, and Sierra Silva.
