The 2017 Hummingbird Festival Committee is pleased to announce the winner of this year's Festival Art Contest. Trent Cannon is a former Greenwave baseball player who has been painting for only a couple of years. Trent's winning painting is his own composition--muted greens and purples complementing a colorful ruby-throated hummingbird and bright white flowers.
Cannon's family lived on Askew Street in Hogansville while he was growing up. He starting earning money at age 12 cutting lawns in the Mill Village, and attended Hogansville High School in 1984.
Trent Cannon’s original framed painting will hang in City Hall downtown, along with the works of art of previous Festival artists. As in past years, this year’s art will be used in the designs for this year’s Festival T-shirt, poster, and guidebook. Those designs will be revealed in the coming weeks, and 2017 Festival T-shirts will be available for sale in the early fall.
