This exhibition at the foryourart Gallery is a celebration of the classic design of the simple village posters used to promote the circus and village fairs. The simplistic 'Colby Poster' was a simplistic design classic that was always created by hand. Its distinctive design always featured heavy black lettering on sheets of luminous card.

This exhibition features works from many graphic designers and artists who wanted to pay tribute to the closure of the 'Colby Company' and its influence on popular culture. The entire space of the gallery is covered in these distinctively modern spins on the classic poster, creating a wall of color and witty slogans.

Some of the posters feature witty slogans like an advertisement for a medial marijuana delivery service that will give visitors to the gallery a chuckle.
