Tammy Harrington Lifes A Peach Print Release From Sally Centigrade Gallery

This week we visit Arkansas for Sally Centigrade Gallery's Travel By Screen Series, where a poster is made for a popular area code for each state. The artist is Tammy Harrington and the print is titled Life's A Peach.

Tammy talks about her print:
I was inspired by the rich history of the peach orchards in Johnson County Arkansas (479 area code). The elevation of the Ozark Mountains supports the growth of this juicy yellow-fleshed fruit. Just a short distance off of old Highway 64, peach lovers can still stop by an orchard to pick their own fruit right off the tree. Or you could attend the annual Johnson County Peach Festival to participate in the peach pit spitting contest. I chose to use a vintage peach label to pay homage to the time when this fruit was king in Johnson County.
Tammy Harrington is an Arkansas printmaker and Art professor at the University of the Ozarks.
