Introducing the 2016 Artist Series Commemorative Poster

Rockport Exchange is thrilled to feature the artwork of Ron Pruett on the 2016 Motif No.1 Day commemorative poster. Ron is a member of the Rockport Art Association and is represented in Rockport by G19 at 19 Broadway.┬áThe Motif No.1 Day artist series of commemorative posters showcases the work of Rockport artists, past and present, and variations on representing the Motif. This unassuming building is capable of being seen in a multitude of ways, its image ranging from distorted to representational. Ron’s piece for the 2016 shows the Motif in yet a different light, the industrial undertones of the color speaking to the building’s history (and continued role) as a working fish shack.

The 2016 poster can be purchased at G19 gallery or at the Rockport Exchange booth on Motif No. 1 Day. Proceeds from the poster sales support the free programming of the nonprofit Rockport Exchange.

Stop by G19 at 4pm on Motif No.1 Day, Saturday, May 21st to meet the artist and enjoy a reception.

Every year we print two types of Motif No.1 Day posters: the annual commemorative poster featuring work from a local artist and a promotional poster, with details about the festival itself. Here is this year’s promo poster, with a collage by Mary Faino of The Paper Mermaid. We LOVE this poster and are excited about seeing it all over Cape Ann spreading the word about Motif No.1 Day! Feel free to download and share it through your own networks!
