Teresa Haag and her painting QUIET were chosen to be the 2020 poster artist and painting for the 47th Annual Yellow Springs Art Show. Teresa competed with fellow artists at the recent Yellow Springs Art School Poster Exhibition. Her work will now be seen on all our print media for the show as well as our official poster, notecards and catalogue cover.
Teresa has participated in the Yellow Springs show for six years. She lives in Phoenixville and maintains her studio on Bridge Street there. She studied art at the Philadelphia Community College and has a BA degree in marketing from the University of Phoenix. Her work is shown in West Chester, Lancaster and Stone Harbor among other places.
Teresa told us that she has visited Yellow Springs village many times, but on one occasion, she visited here in the early morning hours. This changed her thoughts re the village. She found the experience rejuvenating and inspirational and felt a general peacefulness of the area. Thus the title QUIET. She said she understood how the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts Country School art students learned here. Her morning walk really inspired her and prepared her for her day. This is the feeling she hoped to convey in her painting.
Art Show Chair Maureen Fendrick is pleased to honor Teresa as our poster artist for the 2020 show. She, as well as art show committee members, are excited to present her painting QUIET to promote the show.
The original art work will be auctioned at the OPENING GALA of the 2020 Annual Art Show in our Lincoln Building galleries held Friday, April 24. The show will run through May 10. Reservations and a fee are required for the Gala but the show is open free to the public. Watch our e-News and check our website www.yellowsprings.org for details as they unfold.
