Poster Painting by Pamela Harold
The 2017 poster art was created by Edmonds artist, Pamela Harold, who is a noted watercolor artist, teacher, and lecturer. Pamela was the Edmonds Arts Festival Poster Artist in 1999 and was chosen again as the poster artist for the Arts Festival’s 60th anniversary this year. This is the first time the Festival has selected an artist twice to paint a poster. Because it is the 60th anniversary, the Festival wanted to honor her dedication and long-time influence in the Edmonds arts community, her commitment to provide arts exploration and education to all ages, and her continued support of the Festival and Foundation
With her impressive credentials, Pamela was selected as a Juror for the Student Art Exhibit in 2008 and for Miniature Art in 2009. In 2012, she was invited to exhibit her paintings as the Festival’s Featured Artist and will exhibit her work again this year in the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation Gallery in the Anderson Center. The artist has shown her work in Women Painters of Washington Gallery in Columbia Towers, Seattle; Cole Gallery in Edmonds; the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation Gallery; and in her Frederick Place Studio overlooking Puget Sound.
