Summerfair Cincinnati to unveil commemorative poster for 2019 art show set for May 31-June 2 at Coney Island
On Sunday, April 7, 1 p.m., the 2019 Summerfair poster will be unveiled with a signing by the artist, June Pfaff Daley at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Rookwood Commons.
The 2019 Summerfair Cincinnati features a design by June Pfaff Daley from Cincinnati.
June is a freelance graphic designer, mixed media artist, crafter extraordinaire, and art instructor to both children and adults. Her paintings have been displayed in art galleries and her original can sculptures were selected for Red Bull’s national art competition, Art of Can, in both Chicago and Houston. She's been featured on the HGTV show “That’s Clever” and published in both books and magazines including Cloth Paper Scissors. June designs original stencils and project tutorials for StencilGirl Products. She’s inspired by classic children’s stories, nursery rhymes, fictional characters, travel, yard sales, thrift stores and baking. Her sense of humor is often visible in her whimsical style of art.
“My inspiration for this year’s poster combined my love of mixed media art along with the bright and colorful world that is Summerfair. The piece was primarily painted in acrylic, however look closer to spy collaged elements including maps, vintage art catalogs, music sheets, fibers, metal pieces, crochet and pom-pom trims. This collaboration of media represents the bounty of unique items, styles of art and entertainment to be discovered and celebrated under the tents at Summerfair.”
