2012 Art Festival Poster Artist Announced
Announcing the 2012 Rockport Art Festival Poster Artist - Bruce Bitter

A 12-year veteran of the Rockport Art Festival, Bruce Bitter's work captures coastal scenery with vivid expression. Bruce's work has been popular at the Art Festival in addition to being the artwork chosen for several Art Auction invitations.


As a Texas resident for over 12 years, Bruce's work has evolved to encompass a variety of techniques and styles. Originally from the Jersey shore, Bruce was an avid surfer and beach junkie. Encouraged by numerous trips to the tropics, he created a genre of beach images, first as serigraphs and monoprints, now as pastels and mixed media.

"My continuous goal is to engage the viewer to identify with my art, whether it be a form of decoration, a destination or an aesthetic attraction. I try to create a process into everyday life by connecting to popular culture and current trends. I strive to be creative and always push the envelope while producing the best work possible."

Bruce's work will be featured in a solo exhibition opening the Art Fest Season on June 16, 2012. A signature image will be chosen as the artwork for the 2012 Art Festival Poster, and Bruce will also be exhibiting in the 43rd Annual Art Festival, July 7-8, 2012.
