Susan Greeley Named Signature Artist for Coral Springs Festival of the Arts 2019
(Coral Springs, Florida, October 19, 2018) The Coral Springs Festival of the Arts is proud to announce Susan Greeley as the 2019 Signature Artist. The winning entry, entitled “Nature Calls” depicts a cattle egret and great blue heron in a colorful Everglades landscape. Greeley’s painting will be featured in the Festival’s advertisements and on T-shirts and posters sold at the festival. She also earned a $500 stipend and a complimentary booth at the Festival where she will display and sell her artwork.
The Annual Signature Artist Competition attracts submissions from sculptors and two dimensional artists. Pieces are judged on original voice, unique style, mastery of medium, technique and professionalism. Greeley’s painting was picked by blind committee out of 47 entries. Entries were submitted from artists across Broward and Palm Beach counties. This is the second time Greeley, of Boca Raton, has been named the Signature Artist for the event. The first time was in 2018 with a piece called “Under the Sun”.
Greeley has taught K-12 Visual Art since 1981. During this time she was able to develop her own art by experimenting with different media and themes. The natural beauty and color in landscape is the primary focus of her work. She explains, “Hopefully through my paintings the viewers will be able to experience everyday places and spaces in a new light.”
The 15th Annual Festival of the Arts at The Walk of Coral Springs will be held on March 16th and 17th, 2019. The Festival will feature a professional juried arts and crafts show with over 200 fine artisans and crafters and in addition, will host Gardenfest. Throughout the weekend, patrons will enjoy a wide variety of live music, dance exhibitions, theater and literary performances and a children’s area.
The Coral Springs Festival of the Arts is a nonprofit 501C3 corporation dedicated to raise awareness of the arts and culture in northwest Broward, and to entertain, educate and inspire its attendees.
