Tracy Guiteau Selected as The 37th Artigras Fine Arts Festival Commemorative Poster Artist



 WEST PALM BEACH ARTIST TRACY GUITEAU SELECTED AS

THE 37th ARTIGRAS FINE ARTS FESTIVAL
COMMEMORATIVE POSTER ARTIST


 
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida – With her passion for art guiding her, this year’s ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival commemorative poster artist Tracy Guiteau has forged an impressive collection of work which includes being hand-picked by top tennis player Naomi Osaka and iconic athlete LeBron James’ digital media company for an art collaboration during Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
 
“I'm grateful and honored to be chosen as the ArtiGras poster artist this year,” said Guiteau, who lives in West Palm Beach and has been showing her artwork at shows for a few years, but this will be the first time she has been selected as the official poster artist for an event. “This will expand my artistic perspective with new experiences as well as to offer important representation that will encourage artists within our community to pursue their artistic vision.”
 
The commemorative poster is based on her colorful-acrylic painting title “Blossoming You” which was born from Guiteau experiences during the last two years.
 
“The idea for the poster came from experiencing the pandemic alone,” said Guiteau, who has many geographical and cultural influences in her work from her own Haitian heritage as well as her experiences studying art across the country and abroad. “The journey of " Blossoming You" into who you are is embedded with obstacles and hardship, but overcoming each struggle reveals new growth.”
 
Guiteau didn’t always think being an artist was going to be her profession, until one day a math teacher recommended that she follow her artist spirit after noticing her schoolbooks brimming with drawings. After graduating from the New World School of the Arts High School in Miami, she pursued a degree from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her passion for art has led her to many adventures including being exhibited internationally and at Miami Art Basel.
 
Patrons of ArtiGras will be able to meet Tracy Guiteau and buy the official poster at the 37th ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival presented by Hanley Foundation and produced by Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce. The festival will run from February 19-20 at the Gardens North County District Park in Palm Beach Gardens. The outdoor arts event showcases a juried exhibition of outstanding fine art along with activities which include artist and chef demonstrations, the Baptist Heath Youth Art Competition Gallery and the Amazon ArtiKids Zone. Tickets are only $11 per day with advance purchase and children 12 and under are free. More information can be found at artigras.org.

CONTINUUM PB Arts 2021 Virtual 2021

 

 


CONTINUUM Palm Beach Art is a pop up multi-media art fair in Palm Beach County exhibiting regional South Florida artists.  Over the last 7 years, CONTINUUM has provided opportunities for emerging, mid-career and fully established artists as well as young artists developing technical skills, business knowledge and mentoring prowess from art pros in the field.

 Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, curators ATB Fine Art Group Inc. and Craig McInnis Studios had to make some conscious decisions to protect both the welfare of the artists, the pedestrians as well as the integrity of CONTINUUM as a whole.

For the last two years, the event has been the main fundraising resource for the No More Starving Artists Foundation to help raise money for programs, grants and scholarships for projects like Art Aid, the Young Masters' Program and other Business Development opportunities. NMSAF mission is to help primarily Palm Beach County artists be sustainable personally and professionally by providing opportunities and services.

 The decision was made after October 31, 2020 (usually the deadline for the submission) to do a 12”x12” online auction on March 19, 2021. Like many other art fairs in South Florida that had to make similar decisions, this is because of the uncertainty of what was going on with the virus and vaccine for the public. The curators felt this was still an opportunity for both the artists and NMSAF.

 There will also be online lectures, artists’ talks and art classes to provide our collectors, art professionals and the South Florida community with some of the consistent programming CONTINUUM has provided over the last 7 years. We are hoping that Year 9 will allow us to provide some form of normalcy that we have provided in the past. However, this year we can provide you with the uniqueness of something new yet just as innovative and fun.

 

We hope you are part of the new journey.
