Rockport Center for the Arts is excited to announce the 2015 Rockport Art Festival Poster Artist:Â†Chance Yarbrough, an emerging artist in the Texas sporting genre. Chance's work is sought after for the authenticity of his underwater and countryside sporting scenes, reflecting the true experience of a South Texas outdoorsman. His work has caught the eye of many collectors including legendary country singer George Strait. Yarbrough carries on the traditions evident in the work of the late John P. Cowan and Herb Booth. This will be the first major solo exhibition of Yarbrough's career.
Yarbrough's solo exhibition opensÂ†Saturday, June 20Â†and continues through August 1, 2015. A signature painting will be chosen as the image of the 2015 Rockport Art Festival poster, which will debut at the reception. Yarbrough will be signing copies of the poster at the reception.
The original framed work of art will be auctioned at the 2015 Art Auction & Party, held just prior to the Art Festival, on July 2. Posters will be available throughout the 2015 Art Festival July 4-5, and any remaining quantities will be available at the Art Center.
