A great supporter of the CHDC has received the honour of being the winner of the Royal Agriculture Winter Fair’s poster campaign. Cory is an Equi-Health Canada Certified Equine First Aid Instructor as well as an accomplished artist.
“The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair has selected a winner in a poster competition to promote this year’s fair.
Cory Conley of Melancthon, Ont., just north of Orangeville, took home top prize in the nation-wide contest with a colourful, stylized line painting she created of a horse, a cow, a sheep, a pig and a rooster.
Conley’s artwork will be featured on posters and advertisements to promote the 92nd annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, which runs November 7-16, 2014 at the Direct Energy Centre and Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto.
“We were looking for a poster design that pays tribute to our long agricultural history but also shows that we are a contemporary Fair that resonates with people today,” said Sandra Banks, CEO of The Royal. “The animals really are the stars of the show at The Royal and Cory managed to capture them beautifully in her artwork.”
Cory, who works at a holistic equine and human wellness organization in Caledon, said the win is particularly special because her family entered livestock in competitions at The Royal for many years.
“I’m thrilled that my piece will be used by The Royal. It’s really nice to be able to continue our family’s connection with The Royal in a new way,” she said. “To me, the painting is a happy tribute to our agricultural world and a celebration of farming.”
