Local artist creates print commemorating Reds clinch
Local artist C.F. Payne is releasing limited edition prints of his "Reds Clinch Central."
The print captures the emotion of the clinch moment through 20 illustrated caricatures of Reds players, including Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, Jay Bruce, Bronson Arroyo, Jonny Gomes, Scott Rolen and manager Dusty Baker.
The Reds clinched the NL Central in dramatic fashion last September with a walk-off home run by Jay Bruce against the Astros.
Limited edition prints of "Reds Clinch Central"will be available for purchase during an event Wednesday at the Cincinnati Art Museum.
The event is from 3:30 to 7 p.m. and will feature a cash bar and appetizers, as well as remarks by Remarks by Marty Brennaman, C.F. Payne and Aaron Betsky.
Framed, numbered and signed prints by C.F. Payne are $250. Unframed, numbered prints are $50. Proceeds benefit the Reds Community Fund and the Cincinnati Art Museum.
