Whale & Jazz Poster Challenge
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 10, 2007, 5:00 p.m.
Exhibit remains through April 8
Elaine Jacob Foyer
In recent years Gualala has been the center of concerts by major jazz figures such as the Brubeck Brothers and Cleo Laine. As the
Whale & Jazz Festival
gains prominence and attracts more attention it is fitting that it be recognized by posters in a special way. Over time these posters could acquire additional value as early examples of what is becoming a permanent fixture on the annual events calendar. Thus a poster challenge was organized and twelve artists responded with their ideas and their art.
Eminent local artist Duane Gordon judged all the entries for posters. His choices were:
Drew Fagan's "Whale" graphic (center)
Sharon Feissel's "Jazz" photographic montage (left)
Bruce Jones' "Drums Waiting" watercolor (right)
All the entries from the Whale & Jazz Poster Challenge will be shown in the Elaine Jacob Foyer during the
Fifth Annual Whale & Jazz Festival
beginning on Thursday, April 5 through Sunday, April 8 and the month leading up to it.
The Gualala Arts Center, located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA,
is open weekdays 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4:00 p.m.
