ON NOW, for those artists who feel very much drawn to drawing the odoriferous, peel-ready, mince-tastic foodstuff. For the Gilroy Garlic Festival is now less than six months away, and a poster is needed, and if you're the winner, know that the person in first place will receive $500. The deadline to enter is Friday, March 16 at 4 p.m., and Christina Velasquez, chair of the Festival's Retail Committee, and "...a panel of judges will award first place to the artwork that best captures the spirit and essence of the premier summer food festival." Oh golly, is it time for some scampi? Fondue? A roasted head or two, to put you in the right creative mindset? Break out the brushes after you break out the peeler and chopping board, because you might just be the person to create a garlicky masterpiece for the 40th annual Gilroy Garlic Festival, which is on from July 27 through 29, 2018.
