Ana Aguerrevere Mad About Marbles

Artfest Poster Winner 2021_Ana A

Congratulations are in order! On April 9th we announced the winners of our 16th Annual Art Competition. Among the talented selections was Studio 18’s very own Ana Aguerrevere. Ana’s vibrant oil painting Marbles beat out the competition to become this year’s ‘Festival Poster Winner’. Ana describes her paintings as “fun and realistic, with a story behind them”. She aims to “transmit realism through the use of bright colors, and the contrast of lights and shadows”.

Copies of the poster will be available for purchase at the 23rd Annual Artfest in the Pines. We encourage you to attend the event and connect with Ana in person on November 6th & 7th.
