Unveiling the Winning Poster — Mary and the Toad!
Last month we announced the winner of Toad Hollow Vineyards’ Instagram contest: Mary Stover of Block Island, Rhode Island. Using the hashtag #THfineartoffall, Mary submitted her interpretation of the Fine Art of Fall along with dozens of other Toad Hollow Instagram followers. Toad Hollow staff recognized her image of barefoot friends launching a lantern at the seaside as an exceptional interpretation of fall. Although it was tough choosing the winner, we loved Mary’s entry the most!
As described in the contest details, the winning image would be the inspiration for a Toad Hollow art poster designed by longtime Toad Hollow artist Maureen Erickson. Maureen has designed Toad Hollow Vineyards’ labels for more than 20 years. She’s created countless fun-loving images of our Toad for posters (available in our Healdsburg tasting room), as well as for seasonal marketing promotions.
Maureen has brilliantly fused the winning fall image, Mary’s photo, and our Toad into one captivating design: Mary and the Toad. Signed by Maureen and Toad Hollow Vineyards’ owner, Frankie Williams, the poster is on its way to Mary as we write. We can imagine it hanging somewhere next to a nice bottle of Toad Hollow Unoaked Chardonnay or in another place of honor!
