Featured Artist

 

This year’s artwork is created by Sarah Soule Webb, whose first public paintings lined the Pensacola Bay Fishing Bridge in the 1990’s when she was only a child. A Pensacola native, she returns frequently for family, festivals, and artistic inspiration.  Her mother’s art was the inspiration for the festival’s poster in 1992. Known for a vivid, casual style, her pieces adorn homes throughout the Southeast and depict stylized images of beloved places, people, and slices of life.  Although her work is widely varied in subject matter and styles, they all have a common theme in spirit and vibrancy, heavily influenced by the cool coastal hues she enjoyed in her youth.
