ANNOUNCEMENTS

Congratulations to Taylor Smith for  designing a poster so representative of Florence, AL, the Renaissance City!

RenFaire22_2.jpg

     I wanted the poster design to reflect as much of the local Shoals area culture as possible. Since it is the Renaissance Faire I chose to use a medieval-stylized version of our city's Renaissance Tower as the foundation for the layout, with a handful of fleur-de-lis* symbols (the ubiquitous emblem of Florence) adorning the spaces between the windows. Within the tower's windows are five characters. The far left (guitarist...or lutist), center (singer), and far right (horn player) characters represent the musical legacy of the Shoals, from the recording studios to the W.C. Handy Festival. The center left figure (artist) represents the arts culture of our area, such as the Arts Alive festival, as he attempts to paint a great blue heron (another local native) as it flies by. Finally, the center right figure (angler) represents the vibrant angling culture of our area. He must be a bass angler because he appears distressed over his catch..."Alas, a catfish!"                                                                                        Taylor Smith, artist

 

 *the symbol of Florence is the Giglio aka Italian "fleur de lis"
