Organizers of the 48th ANNUAL BLUEMONT FAIR, to be held September 16 & 17, 2017, are pleased to announce that the winner of this year’s poster design contest is Loudoun’s own Margaret

Holliday of Lovettsville, VA.  Margaret is a Montana native who recently retired from teaching elementary education in Loudoun County. She has experimented with many art forms over the years and has lately begun to work in watercolor.  Her striking watercolor design of a mowed field covered with rolled hay bales behind a wood and barbed wire fence below a blue Virginia sky will grace the Bluemont Fair’s distinctive poster and T-shirt.   

Additionally,  a drawing of a charming red farm truck hauling old fashioned hay bales by another Loudouner, Anni Bryner, has been selected for the 2017 Bluemont Fair mugs and other memorabilia.

Anni is the Art, Drama, and Toddler teacher at Village Montessori School in the heart of Bluemont. She resides in Round Hill with her husband, an assortment of rescued cats and dogs, and a mountain of half-finished paintings. She also enjoys knitting socks, making baskets, and carving wooden spoons
