The Richmond Maritime Festival is delighted to announce that Richmond artist, Brenda Clark, has been selected to create the poster image for the 13th annual festival happening at Britannia Shipyards National Historic Site on August 6 and 7.
Clark is a Richmond based architect and artist who is actively involved in the Richmond arts scene. She is a member of the Riverside Artists’ Circle, and a past member of the Richmond Gem & Mineral Club, the Richmond Potters’ Club, and was president of the Image Printmakers’ Group, all based in the Richmond Cultural Centre.
“I’m very excited to a part of the 2016 Maritime Festival,” says Clark. “I love the City of Richmond’s support of the arts. It is very rewarding to see art so highlighted and treasured in our community”.
Clark was selected from a number of artists who submitted samples of their work for consideration. The final poster illustration will be published in June. For more information about the Richmond Maritime Festival, please visit www.richmondmaritimefestival.ca.
