2018’s memorabilia art was created by Barton DeGraaf from Bend, Oregon. Barton’s original piece, titled Dog Days, was made specifically for the Art Fair. Each year, a committee selects a Memorabilia Artist from previous Salem Art Fair & Festival artists. This artist then has their art featured on a limited run of posters, t-shirts and tote bags, which are sold during the event.

After Barton left the corporate world to accept his calling as an artist be began dreaming of new paintings, and never seems to run out ideas. He loves to come up with original, creative images that tell a story, reflect a personal experience, or just make you laugh. His goal is to bring a smile to the viewer and bring some happiness to the world.

Barton has been painting his whole life. Born in Chicago, he fell in love with art at the Art Institute of Chicago.  He pursued his passion and received his BFA in 1999 from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, Colorado. He currently lives in Bend, Oregon with his wife Heidi and son Jon.

Make sure to stop by Barton’s booth at the Salem Art Fair & Festival this July to see more of his whimsical art. T-shirts, posters and canvas tote bags with a Dog Days graphic will also be available for sale at the event.
