Santa Fe Spring Arts Festival poster unveiled
Gainesville painter Harriet Huss revealed her image celebrating the 42nd annual Santa Fe Spring Arts Festival Thursday afternoon. The artist autographed copies of the poster at a reception on the Santa Fe College campus. Huss says she draws much of her inspiration from nature here in Florida.
“I feel like we’re very lucky that we have preserved as much of the natural beauty that we have,” says Huss. “I feel like part of my role as an artist is to capture and communicate that.”
The arts festival Program Assistant, Kathryn Russ, says the event allows members of the community to come together and enjoy art.
“It’s just so fun to see our communities out having a great time,” says Russ. “There’s so many different people out there: kids, old people. It’s just nice to see everybody having a great time appreciating art.”
The festival will be held on April 9th and 10th in downtown Gainesville.
