Art chosen for Wine Cornucopia poster

Saturday night at the Fall Wine Cornucopia Art Competition at the Fresno Metropolitan Museum the poster art was chosen for the Oct. 25 Fall Wine Cornucopia, the annual wine festival at Chukchansi Park.

Eighteen pieces of art were entered into Saturday’s competition, where local artists were asked to create works around two themes: the cornucopia and “A Sip of the San Joaquin.”

The winning artist was Andrea Cooper, the Bee’s former art director. A big Beehive shout out to Andi for her beautiful watercolor.


It will be interesting to see how the wine association turns the art into a poster to market the event.

Cool. Nice job, Andi.

i really appreciate the detail of that painting, especially the work on the glasses.

one question, was the photo snapped at an odd angle, or is the painting not square?

Kathy Mahan says:

It’s my photo. It was at a slight angle and I cropped it in some.

Andi says:

Thanks for the compliments! I like the way the photo gives it that Toon Town look (LOL).

beautiful photo…please let us know when the poster is available.

There will be 100 lithographs signed by the artist (uh, me) available for sale at the 2009 Fall Wine Cornucopia at Chukchansi Park on Oct. 25. I plan to exhibit some of my other work during this event, also.
