Robert Yonke Provides Artwork for Delfest 2010

Robert Yonke: The Bluegrass PainterWe’ve been telling you about the works of art created by bluegrass painter Robert Yonke for a couple years now. He’s painted some fantastic bluegrass scenes in the past, including the artwork for the 2008 IBMA World of Bluegrass.

We’ve just learned that Yonke has recently been commissioned to create artwork for the 2010 Delfest. The artwork will be used as the “graphic foundation” for the festival poster and other related promotional pieces.

Yonke is a mandolin player himself, and finds great joy in combining his two artistic passions, bluegrass music and watercolor painting.

We’re fans of his work here at Bluegrass Today, and excited to see this fusion of two fine art forms.
