MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis in May International Festival unveiled the 2016 Fine Arts Poster on Thursday.
The artwork honors this year’s featured country, Canada.
The image was created by a local artist named Jared Small and depicts a rural mountain scene set in British Colombia.
“Small’s work on this piece is impressive and captivating, and shows his intimate familiarity with older structures and the way they show their age,” said festival organizers in a release. “Small’s visual interpretation of Canada is both poignant and diverse, focusing on Canada’s rural beauty, while keeping the cosmopolitan city skyline in frame.”
The Fine Arts Poster is available for purchase online, at area galleries, and at 1910 Frameworks.
