Summerfair 2021 poster a “tribute to the first artists in Ohio”

CINCINNATI – One of the oldest art fairs in the country has its main exhibition on Sunday.

The 54th annual summer fair, held on June 4-6 at Coney Island, will feature the work of more than 300 artists and craftsmen. And in contrast to last year’s festival, that
was made a drive through event due to COVID-19 that people will be able to walk around this year.

Art is featured in 12 categories including photography, painting, drawing, wood, metal, and more.

Amy Panfalone, a middle school teacher in the Lakota Local School District, won this year’s poster competition. Panfalone said she took inspiration from Native American locations across Ohio for this year’s poster.

“We had just come back from a trip to explore the Hopewell Mountains … and the Serpent Mound, so I would like to believe that my design this year pays homage to early artists in terms of color and design and bold patterns in Ohio, “said Panfalone.

Panfalone will be at the Anderson Center on Sunday from 1pm to 3pm to sign posters for anyone interested in buying one.
