Our 2018 poster by famous artist Alan Flattman will be for sell. Alan will also be available to sign your poster. Alan, a New Orleans native, at the age of 17, received a New Orleans Art Association Scholarship to study with the renowned regionalist painter, John McCrady, at the John McCrady Art School in the French Quarter. It was there that his lifetime interest in painting the French Quarter began. Spanning a career of over four decades, Alan Flattmann is recognized as one of America’s most outstanding and gifted artists’. He was inducted into The Pastel Society of America’s Hall of Fame in 2006 and awarded the PSA Master Pastelist distinction in 1991. He is the recipient of the 1996 American Artist Art Masters Award for pastel teacher and has been listed in Who’s Who in American Art since 1981. In conjunction with the publication of the book, “Alan Flattmann’s French Quarter Impressions”, the mayor of New Orleans officially proclaimed September 28, 2002 as Alan Flattmann Day in recognition of 25 years of success painting in the French Quarter.

There will be a silent auction of the original oil painting during the lunch. 

Our Krewe of Cork Logo Flag will also be on sale for $40.00 cash or check only.
