Organizers of the 50th annual Bluemont Fair have selected and announced the winner of this year’s poster design contest—Jody West of Fort Valley.
West, a graphic designer working as the marketing director for the National Sporting Library & Museum in Middleburg, created a design that features balloon lettering and a crescent man-in-the-moon overlooking the Bluemont Community Center, formerly the Bluemont Schoolhouse, and multiple tents, food trucks, musicians and fair visitors. According to a statement from the organizers, the design is reminiscent of the “groovy 1970 aesthetic” from the year of the first fair. Her design will be displayed on the fair poster, T-shirt and other memorabilia.
The Bluemont Fair will be held Sept. 21-22 this year. For more information about the fair, go to bluemontfair.org. To see more of West’s work, go to jwestfoundart.com.
