Carol Ferony poses with her painting, selected as the image for the 2018 JazzFest poster.

The varied, colorful and eclectic posters celebrating the 35 years of Pensacola JazzFest were featured in a recent Pensacola News Journal article, “Artists festival posters become the face of Pensacola.”

The article, by Mike Roberts, looks at how the posters of various Pensacola festivals over the years, including Pensacola JazzFest, the Pensacola Seafood Festival and the Great Gulfcoast Arts Festival, have chronicled the look, temperament and social customs of our city, and includes interviews with several poster artists, including DeFuniak Springs artist Carol Ferony, who produced the art for the 30th and the 35th JazzFests.

Roberts also interviewed Jazz Pensacola co-founder and director emeritus Norman Vickers.
