  • The poster art for the 2017 Sips & Skies was designed by Xo Terra, who began painting while living in Hawaii. Her loose style and bold abstractions transport viewers into vivid landscapes and emotional beauty of her subjects. Xo’s interpretation of the Huachuca Mountains that surround Sierra Vista capture both her passion for the subject and the soul-lifting spirit of this powerful landmark.

    Coming soon! Pre-order an 18″ x 20″ art quality poster reproduction or email the artist now to inquire about purchasing the original 30″ x 20″ artwork.
