The Mathews Market Days Committee announces the annual Market Days poster unveiling on Saturday, August 19, at 1:00pm in the Art Speaks Gallery at the Bay School Community Arts Center. Refreshments will be served and the public is encouraged to attend to meet the artists and purchase the signed and numbered posters. The poster contenders have been on display in the gallery since August 1.
This year’s poster theme is “A Mathews Point of View”, reflecting the idea that Mathews can be seen from several points of view. It can be seen by land or by sea, by come-heres and from-heres, in nature or what the community has built, and through one’s mind’s eye. What “point” made you fall in love with Mathews? Come see the vision of our artists. There were six applicants this year, however due to unforeseen circumstances only three were able to enter their artwork: Rebecca Wheeler, Mary Lou Haase, and Robin Marshall. The winning artist will be signing and numbering her artwork.
Posters will be available for sale at the unveiling. Two sizes are being offered this year. The traditional poster size of 18” x 24” will be $25.00 and 11” x 14” will be $20.00. After Market Days the prices will go up and posters can be purchased at the Mathews Visitor and Information Center. Posters from the past will be available at Mathews Market Days, while supplies last. Some are very limited and some will be last chance and will not be offered again. Past years’ posters (1994-2015) will be priced as follows: 1-$15; 2-$25; 3-$30.
