Whitney Pintello Crowned 2012 Gilroy Garlic Festival Poster Winner

Pintello won first place and a whopping $750 cash prize for her garlicky masterpiece.

The contrast between the white garlic and purple and plum tones in Whitney Pintello's poster is certainly eye catching, which is why it's no surprise the local artist took first place in this year's Gilroy Garlic Festival poster contest, festival representatives announced today.

The self-taught artist is known for her lovely works, which often combine diverse shades with rustic designs that reflect a Mediterranean feeling reminiscent of Tuscany, Italy. She not only paints on canvas, but is known to produce as well.

Pintello received a $750 cash prize for her original artwork. Prints of her poster will be available for $10 during the Gilroy Garlic Festival, set to take place July 27-29. 

Second and third place winners are Izumi Kurokawa and Tamara Piper, who also received cash prizes.
