UNION, Maine — The Union Fair recognized the winner of its poster art contest local artist Tania Amazeen-Jones of Washington, who received a check for $500, as well as a framed copy of the completed poster.
The contest, which began in January, ran through April 1 when the entries were judged by the board of trustees. The winner was one of 28 entries competing for the prize. The artwork was used to produce the posters that will be used around the tri-county area to publicize the fair.
Union Fair represents Lincoln, Knox and Waldo counties and is the State of Maine Wild Blueberry Festival. Held on the Union Fairgrounds Aug. 18-25, it is billed as a “Real Agricultural Fair.” For information about the fair and the festival, go to unionfair.org.
Framed posters are available for $10, unframed, $5, by contacting the contest coordinator at email@example.com to reserve a copy. Pre-ordered posters orders may be picked up at Matthews Museum or on the fairground after arrangements have been made. Unframed and framed copies will also be available during fair week at the Blueberry Acres building.
