The art loving crowd was wall to wall for Saturday, June 17th reception for Rockport Art Festival poster artist, Barb Robinson. Walls were filled with her work and attendees were able to get signed copies of the 2017 poster featuring her work.  Robinson's work is displayed as a solo exhibition but work by former poster artists is on display in the smaller gallery. The exhibition will continue through July 29. The reception and food was sponsored by Gulf Pointe Plaza.

Attendees were also able to peruse boxes decorated by members of the Rockport Center for the Art and place bids on those that they liked. After June 18, 2017, the boxes will next be seen at the Artists Project Auction at the gala on June 30, prior to the Art Festival on July 1-2.
