2024 Featured Artist

The 2024 featured artist is Ed Pribyl of McHenry, Illinois. Ed has been creating his original wood sculptures for nearly 30 years. His love for old advertising, vintage toys, and humorous pop culture has inspired him to create work that is truly reflective of the past, while presenting it in a very contemporary way. Ed’s artwork will be featured on commemorative shirts, posters, and cards, and you can see his detailed pieces at the 2024 show starting, Friday May 3rd at 5 pm. Click below for more about Ed.
