The Arts In Easton Banner Program is the work of the Avalon Foundation. Each year, 44 local artists participate to create 88 pieces of original fine artwork on canvas material impervious to weather. Each banner, 30" by 40" in dimension, is an original, one-of-a-kind work of art.
Banners may be created from a variety of mediums. There have been banners produced in oil paint, acrylic paint, photographic art, mosaics and three dimensional art. The banners are hung from lampposts in downtown Easton before Plein Air-Easton! in July and remain until April. They are then taken down and the two sides of the banner are separated and cleaned in preparation for the annual auction.
Banners may be bid on by online biddingor at the exhilerating Banner Auction, held on May 16, 2015 in the Waterfowl Festival Building in downtown Easton, Maryland.
The banners are displayed in the Waterfowl Building in advance of the auction to allow the public an opportunity to preview them. The first $100.00 dollars of a banner sale goes to pay for the cost of the banner. From the proceeds, 75% goes to the artist and 25% is used to support of the work of the Avalon Foundation.
