Every year, the Red Poppy Planning Committee issues a call for art from which to select the Red Poppy Festival artwork. A committee of artists will select the winning art to be used for the official 2014 Red Poppy Festival poster.
The poster for the 2014 Red Poppy Festival features a poppy painting by Betty Jameson, an artist from Austin. Jameson’s watercolor paintings have been shown in dozens of exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe over a 30-year career.
Street banners featuring Jameson’s red poppy painting are currently on display in downtown. Posters for the 15th annual Red Poppy Festival featuring Jameson’s painting go on sale for $5 each at the Visitor Center at 103 W. Seventh Street starting April 4.
