Tanna Peters, a local graphic designer, has long admired the artwork on the Alaska Folk Festival posters.
The ones by Eric Bealer, she croons, are intricate and poignant. Kathy Hocker’s are bright and creative. And Ray Troll’s poster last year?
“I could never top that,” she said.
But this year she tried anyway.
Over the years since the 1970s, the Folk Fest posters have evolved from being just flyers advertising when and where the concert was taking place, to beautiful pieces of artwork by professional artists.
