The Edmonds Arts Festival is pleased to announce that Kate Larsson had been selected as the artist for the 2013 Edmonds Arts Festival marketing poster with her painting, Ferry and Poppies. This image will be shown in the Festival advertisements, posters, website and on sportswear and specialty items in the Festival Store.

Larsson takes a creative look at three significant icons of the Edmonds landscape – magnificent mountains, the ferry system that opens a world of possibilities to both locals and travelers, as well as the beautiful and brilliant poppies for which this location is known. This local Festival has the distinction of being in a premier position on Puget Sound, able to enjoy every change in season and coloration first-hand.

Larsson has provided her interpretation of some of the most vibrant colors the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Come enjoy her work, the work of all our artists and craftsmen and the glorious views at one of the most vibrant times of the year.

From a successful career as a Marketing Executive Larsson has taken her second career as an artist to levels many other artists would strive to equal. From her first solo exhibit in 1998 she now shows her work throughout Washington, Arizona, California, New Mexico, Oregon and Idaho

Prior to selection as the artist for the 2013 Edmonds Arts Festival Poster, her work was selected as the festival art for Issaquah Salmon Days in 2011, the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in 2012 and the Gig Harbor Garden Tour in 2012 and 2013.

She enjoys participation in a variety of fine arts festivals each year and you will find her and her artwork in one of the Artist Booths on the field at the 2013 Edmonds Arts Festival.

Larsson will have a booth on the field during the Festival and an exhibit of her original paintings will be shown in the EAF Museum, located in the Frances Anderson Center, Main Entrance, 700 Main Street, Edmonds.
