In Garden Gallery: Past Poster Artist Exhibit
  The Garden Gallery is alive with original artwork from former Rockport Art Festival Poster Artists.  Since 1993, one artist has been chosen annually to generate an image that captures the essence of the Rockport Center for the Arts creative spirit.  Every year, these "chosen ones" have submitted work for display (and sale) in the Garden Gallery.  Many of these artists also donate work to our Live Auction, which precedes the Art Festival.  Proceeds from these events sustain quality programming and continued free admission to the Art Center.
