Rose Village — A mixed-media painting by Vancouver artist Jill Mayberg was picked to adorn the official poster for this year's popular Salem Art Fair and Festival. "Oregon Quilt" was made with layers of acrylic paint, paper cut-outs and oil pastels on canvas. In a press release, the full-time artist said her piece — organized like a quilt — was influenced by her love of folk art, quilting, whimsy and the Pacific Northwest. The Salem Art Fair is selling a limited number of posters featuring Mayberg's work. Nearly 50,000 visit the festival each year.
