Carpinteria resident Rick Sharp will have his vintage artwork featured as the official image for the Ojai Art Center’s 46th Annual Art in the Park fine art event on May 27 and May 28.
“I am honored to have my artwork featured on the Art in the Park brochure and marketing materials,” Sharp told the Ojai group. “This event is such an important part of our community, and I am excited to contribute to it in this way.”
Sharp, originally from Santa Barbara, made a name for himself as a poster artist in the 70s surf culture of Southern California, and his work often incorporates bold colors, nostalgic imagery and vintage typography and graphics.
Art in the Park is an annual event that celebrates fine art and nature, and this year’s event will take place on Memorial Weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Libbey Park. The event is open to the public and will feature a wide array of different exhibitors.
Exhibitor applications are being accepted through the end of March. For more information about Art in the Park, please visit ojaiartcenter.org.
