AWARD-WINNING NEW SMYRNA BEACH ARTIST, NANCY CONNORS, NAMED WINTER SPRINGS ARTOBERFEST POSTER ARTIST
Winter Springs, FL (August 30, 2019)– The Oviedo-Winter Springs Regional Chamber of Commerce (OWSRCC) ARToberFEST planning committee has named Nancy Connors the poster artist for its 12th annual Winter Springs ARToberFEST. Presented by AdventHealth at the Winter Springs Town Center on Saturday, October 19th, and Sunday, October 20th, ARToberFEST is a free, family event produced by the OWSRCC and the City of Winter Springs.
A Florida artist who uses pen and ink to craft images of birds, fish, shells and seascapes in meticulous detail, Nancy Connors often adds vibrant colors to create inspirational depictions of the natural world. Since moving to New Smyrna Beach, FL in 2016, she has become a frequently featured and award-winning artist on the Florida art show circuit. Using fine point Micron pens and archival ink and aided by a 10-time magnification jeweler’s loop, each piece is structured around Connors’ trademark attention to detail. She adds color with acrylics and water color pencils which are applied with super fine brushes.
“Even when I was living and working up north the unique, colorful, and diverse natural beauty of Florida was my inspiration. I am obsessively driven to capture the minute detail of the earth’s most fascinating creations. It is my goal as an artist to inspire people to stop for a moment and observe closely the complexity, patterns, and detail in the nature that surrounds us,” explains Connors.
Connors’ poster will be unveiled at the OWSRCC September monthly luncheon at Tuscawilla Country Club. Prints will be available for sale at the ARToberFEST and the chamber office beginning on October 1st.
Over 100 artists and a variety of vendors will be displaying their goods and artwork throughout Blumberg Boulevard adjacent to the Winter Springs Town Center from 10am to 5pm on both days of this family-friendly event. Admission is free.
