McMinnville wine and food classic poster, featuring painting by Joan Pechanec

This is the poster for the 2020 Food and Wine Classic, “Sip,” a national 3-day, 3000 person event held annually in McMinnville, Oregon’s huge airplane hangar at the Evergreen Aviation Museum.

I was selected to create the event’s poster painting and display additional work at the festival. Opening day, I was on the road to the museum with 2 vehicles full of paintings when I got word that the event was unexpectedly cancelled due to the initial outbreak of Covid.
