In September 2017, Toad Hollow launched an Instagram contest as part of our fall promotion, “The Fine Art of Fall” (#THfineartoffall).
Wait for it . . . drum roll please . . . we have a winner!
Mary Stover of Block Island, Rhode Island, submitted her interpretation of the Fine Art of Fall with an image of friends standing barefoot at the water’s edge, launching a lantern into the evening sky. It offered a unique interpretation of fall at the shore—warm breezes, a dreamy sunset, good friends sending off a memory together.
The Fine Art of Fall campaign invited Instagram users to post fall pastime photos at #THfineartoffall. We asked for images of fall activities, such as jumping in leaves, cycling through fall colors, fixing a great stew or soup, or watching a football game. Photos with all manner of toads were also submitted for a chance to be included in one of our celebrated Toad art posters created by Toad’s label artist, Maureen Erickson.
Mary will receive a framed Toad print that includes her image and is signed by both Erickson and winery owner Frankie Williams.
We received many images submitted through Instagram from across the country. The humor and creativity of our Toad fans made the decision a challenging one for the Toad Hollow staff who served as judges for the contest.
