Strawberry fields forever

The 2018 Strawberry Festival Poster was revealed Thursday night at The Kiwanis Log Cabin in Ponchatoula. The event was well-attended and The Kiwanis Club pulled out all the stops, featuring everything strawberry. The poster chosen was painted by Artist Mathew Moore and it features everything we locals associate with strawberry season, a strawberry field, a tractor and a dog. Mathew Moore is a retired Army Veteran and local artist in our community. In addition to painting, Mathew is a tattoo artist at The Winchester Tattoo Company located in Ponchatoula. Mathew’s other artistic interests include music, woodworking, and culinary arts. Mathew is married to Jade Moore owner of Cakes by Jade and together they have five children. (Times Photo by Amy Brennan)
