The work of local artist Anni Furniss was used as the image for the 2021 Washougal Art Festival poster and advertising. The piece is called “Love Grows Here” and was inspired by nature walks with her husband, John, and the beautiful landscapes in the area. A limited number of signed 2021 WAF posters will be available for purchase at the festival for a $20 donation. Furness’ work can be seen at https://www.furnissstudios.com/anni.
