MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Representatives of Coastal Uncorked Food and Wine Festival announced Wednesday that Terry Brennan of Myrtle Beach has won the inaugural poster competition with his piece titled “Cuisine.” Brennan’s creation, which was inspired by the festival and the overall ambiance of the Myrtle Beach area, is a dimensional piece featuring a variety of artistic mediums. The base of the design is a cabinet door while the various elements, which include a red snapper, a wine bottle and a bunch of grapes, are made from shipping tubes and urethane wood. Brennan’s work of art will be available for purchase through a silent auction at the Food Fight Gala, a fun-filled evening featuring an “Iron Chef” style competition between eight area chefs as well as beer and wine tastings and samplings from eight local restaurants on May 23. Chris Walker’s watercolor titled “Palmetto Picnic” won second place in the competition. There were three third place winners: an oil painting by Kimberly Dawn Clayton titled “Sweet Coast;” a drawing by Donald Perry titled “Uncorked Shadows;” and a digitally designed piece by Lorraine Dauphin titled “Eat, Drink, Beach”. “I am truly honored to have my design win the poster competition,” said Brennan. “I drew my inspiration from the ocean and the general festival message of coastal cuisine and fine wine. I look forward to seeing my poster come-to-life as it represents the inaugural festival.” “We had more than 30 amazing works of art submitted to us for the poster competition – I was absolutely blown away,” said Heidi Vukov, owner of Croissants Bistro & Bakery and Coastal Uncorked spokesperson. “While the decision was difficult, Terry’s creation truly embodied the message of our festival, it was the perfect choice. I am looking forward to using his design to represent our inaugural event.” Copyright 2010 WMBF News. All rights reserved.
