Windsor Fair has decided to go ahead with the 2020 Windsor Fair Poster even though this year's fair has been canceled. The Poster Contest began before this pandemic and this year's poster is also to celebrate Maine's Bicentennial. The fair had scheduled a number of events in honor of the 200th Birthday of our State in the historical area, the pulling arena, and at the race track, all remembering the history of fairs in Maine. The sunflower was our first poster and the blue and yellow crowing rooster is perfect to celebrate Maine's Birthday, including the Bicentennial logo 1820-2020.
There were many fine entrees of artwork. The Board chose the artwork of Keith Peters from Farmingdale, Maine. Following is his profile:
"Growing up in central Maine, I took an early interest in art," Keith Peters says, "I developed a close kinship with the natural world as a child." That kinship is the basis for his art, in which he develops images from the world around him, painting in watercolor, graphite and pen and ink.
Keith has a passion for creating highly detailed artwork of scenes from intimate corners of the Maine coast to well-worn objects found even in an old toolbox. Working in acrylic paints, he employs a bold color palette and fluid yet somewhat detailed style to give images of beloved antique vehicles a presence that captures the essence of years gone by. Recent interests also include depicting birds, cityscapes, flora and even whimsical images of popular food items in acrylics.
After receiving a BFA in graphic design from the Maine College of Art in Portland, he studied illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. His illustrations have appeared in several major magazines and regularly on billboards he designed for placement across southwestern United States. He now works in publishing, graphic design, writing and painting in his own home studio in Farmingdale, Maine.
Cost: $21.00, including sales tax and shipping.
