The 2014 Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament is already being planned, and Kelly Reark-Borza has been named as the official tournament artist.
Kelly's painting, "Anchored in Tradition," portrays a mermaid with a tarpon tail, set against an ornate anchor and a warm Boca Grande sunset.View More images >>
“This will be Kelly’s second year bringing us back to tradition with her unique vision as the official tournament artist, and her third as the logo artist,” said tournament planner Melissa Laterza.
Kelly will also design the 2014 Ladies Day logo to match her “Anchored in Tradition” theme.
“It brings together traditional nautical designs and our own Boca Grande icons to convey the nostalgia and reverence I have for tarpon fishing in the Pass,” Kelly said when asked about her painting.
Kelly has fished in Boca since the 1980s, and her love for tarpon has grown since she moved to Boca Grande in 2002.
You can see Kelly’s art on the Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament Facebook page and at kellyreark.com. Kelly has extended her artistic skills to designing the new official Ladies Day website as well, ladiestarpon.com.
Ladies Day merchandise will be announced soon, so check out the website and Facebook for all the latest updates.
