Posters and Pageantry

I loved the use of Columbia artist Gail Holliday's Posters as processional banners at the kickoff event to the 50th Birthday celebrations. Here is a photo (not mine) of the assembled banners.
(If this is your photo, please tell me and I will credit you.)

There's going to be an exhibit of Ms. Holliday's work beginning on March 30th at the Berniece Kish Gallery in Wilde Lake. The Opening Reception will be April 9th from 3-5 pm. This exhibit will focus on her posters of Wilde Lake.  

If you are interested in seeing more of Ms. Holliday's works take a look at this Etsy shop, 
Holliday Originals, or at this website of the artist's work. According to the site,  "All the original designs were hand pulled silk screens created by the artist." I wish I understood more about the silk-screening process. 

It looks as though not all of the original posters are extant. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a complete set? This would make a coffee table book par excellence!
