I am stoked to return as the official festival artist and live performance artist for Mountain Music Festival happening June 2-4, 2022 at ACE Adventure Resort at the New River Gorge National Park.

This is my fifth year as the festival poster artist and we are set to vend art prints, art blankets, and other merchandise. Attendees can catch me painting on the various murals throughout the venue during the event. The theme for this year’s art is Creatures of the Night. To read more about the poster art, visit the link at the festival website here.

Hope to see you on the mountain.

Adventures on the Appalachian Transformation – Anthony’s Nose, Cortlandt, New York
36″ x 24″ x 2″ – Oil Mischtechnik Painting on Panel
Brian Christopher Zickafoose © 2022
This painting was inspired by a popular scenic spot on the Appalachian Trail overlooking the Bear Mountain Bridge on the Hudson River in upstate New York. Every year thousands of pilgrims hike the craggy mountain climb to Anthony’s Nose summit for sprawling, panoramic views of the Hudson Valley. On the upward path, we undergo a purification of spirit as we ascend the heights culminating in our communion with the One.

Prints and Posters Available.
