2018 Poster Artists: Grace Brown & Kristine Brown!

Grace Brown, Artist

Grace has been interested in art since before she can even remember,
though, she's have never had any formal training. She has kept art apart of her life
as much as she can, taking every opportunity to practice. This has allowed her to
grow despite her lack of education in that area. Her art is mostly black and
white and uses fineliner pens to create small detailed designs within larger
pictures or shapes. She was so inspired by the theme of the Fair “Rockin’ the
Salish Sea” because she immediately thought “WHALE!” which fits so wonderfully
into her style of art and into life in the San Juans.

Kristine Brown, Graphics

When her daughter-in-law Grace decided to submit her art for the
Fair she asked if Kristine could help with the background and typeface selections.
After years of helping other island artists with their posters, Kristine was excited
to spend the time collaborating with someone dear to her. In between building
her tiny home in her yard and coming in to get warm, Grace directed Kristine's digital
efforts and she loves how it fits this year’s theme. How often can an Orca whale
be the star of a county fair poster?

Prints of this poster will be available to business owners who are willing to post the poster in their business the month of August, and prints will also be available by donation to members of the public before and during the Fair event in the Fair Administration office.
