October 2017, Tampa, FL – Coppertail Brewing Co. will host a series of events with their label artist, Evan B. Harris this month. Coming all the way from Portland, OR, this will be Evan’s first appearance at an exhibition of his work in Tampa.
Evan has worked closely with the Coppertail team to create the distinctive artwork for Coppertail’s beer bottle labels, packaging, advertising, merchandise and mural art in Coppertail’s taproom.
“Kent Bailey and the folks at Coppertail are a joy to collaborate with,” said Evan. “I have a lot of fun illustrating the stories they think up. I’m given the freedom to use my imagination to add life to the characters. I feel that’s what helped to build such a strong, recognizable brand. Folks want to stay tune into the Coppertail universe to see what happens next in the story.”
On Saturday, October 28, Coppertail will host a Halloween party at their Ybor City location to launch the exhibition. The party will run from 9 pm to midnight, and it will have the theme ‘Psychedelic Honky Tonk.’ That evening, Evan will appear with local performers Will Quinlan and the Holy Slow Train, and he’ll be one of the judges of a Psychedelic Honky Tonk Costume contest. Evan’s art will be exhibited on the second floor of the taproom.
On Sunday, October 29, from 11 am to 5 pm, Evan will be on site at Coppertail to sign prints, meet with fans and perform an acoustic music set.
The exhibit of Evan’s art will be on display through Tuesday, Oct 31, and it will feature large-scale prints of selected Coppertail art. All art will be available for purchase with prices ranging from $74 - $840.

About Evan B. Harris
Born among the briars & brambles in backwoods of Klamath Falls, Oregon, Evan Benjamin Harris grew up with little knowledge of the bourgeois big city fine arts. So, he dove into the recesses of his own imagination and embraced the fables and folklore that fascinated him. The stories he created as a child are still present in his paintings. With diligence and hard work, Evan’s crude stick figures became the more clearly defined images you see today. With no formal art training, he creates on his own terms.
Since January 2014, Evan has produced the unique and distinctive art for Coppertail Brewing Co.’s labels, packaging, and marketing materials. He has earned accolades for his work with Coppertail including feature stories in Paste Magazine and Beer Advocate.

Media contacts: Evan will be available Thursday, October 26th - Monday, October 30th for interviews and photos.
