Bakersfield artist Kelly Wonderly is the winner of the first Kern County Nut Festival Commemorative poster contest.
Wonderly’s work depicts the nut industry in Kern County and features gloved hands, bees, flowers, an aqueduct, fruit, trees and harvested almonds, pistachios and walnuts. The images are set against a background of furrowed earth and unused land.
Wonderly will receive a $1,000 prize provided by Milt and Betty Younger.
Her artwork will be printed as a commemorative poster and sold at the Kern County Nut Festival on June 15 at the Kern County Museum.
