Panoply 2015 Poster Artwork Unveiled

Today at the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, Arts Council board, volunteers and staff celebrated the kickoff of Panoply ticket sales and shared highlights of the upcoming festival. Panoply will return to Big Spring Park April 24, 25 and 26.

Phantom Deer Joins the Show

One key tradition of the festival is the commissioning of a piece of original artwork to serve as the poster for the event. For the 2015 festival, Arts Council leadership chose local mixed media artist Gina Percifull to create a design to represent the 33rd Panoply. Ms. Percifull is an established artist based out of Maysville, Alabama who has a devoted following of collectors throughout the Southeast. Her work spans several mediums, with a focus on assemblage, collage and using recycled and reclaimed materials, but the Panoply artwork is a painting in her signature style. Titled Phantom Deer Joins the Show, the work will also be featured in graphic form on the festival t-shirts, something The Arts Council hasn’t done in ten years.

“Gina Percifull is a fantastic artist who embodies Huntsville’s image of innovation with a funky, smart vibe,” said Steve Johnson, president of The Arts Council’s Board of Directors. “Her reuse of wood and other salvaged materials in her artwork is a great representation of our community’s focus on sustainability, and the piece she’s created for Panoply is both fresh and classic. We at The Arts Council are honored to showcase her talent through our poster and t-shirt, and hope the public visits her booth in the Art Marketplace during the festival weekend.”

Presented by TOYOTA Motor Manufacturing of Alabama, the juried Art Marketplace at Panoply is one of the most popular features of the festival. Showcasing 85 fine artists from 11 states, the Marketplace provides prime shopping in a beautiful setting over the Monroe Street bridge. Local art enthusiasts can take advantage of the festival’s First Dibs program, giving ticket buyers the opportunity to shop the marketplace before the general public arrives. First Dibs tickets can be purchased by clicking here or by calling (256) 519-2787.
