Paul Davis, an artist whose paintings and posters have been the subject of gallery exhibitions and museum retrospectives in the United States and abroad, has designed a poster featuring David Pechefsky, a candidate in the Democratic primary on June 26 for the nomination to run for Congress in New York’s First Congressional District.

Mr. Davis, a longtime Sag Harbor resident, was art director for Joseph Papp’s New York Shakespeare Festival from 1984 to 1991, and his clients have included Time magazine, Rolling Stone, the American Museum of the Moving Image, the 92nd Street Y, and The New York Times. His posters are renowned.

In addition to Mr. Pechefsky, the other Democrats seeking an opportunity to unseat Republican Representative Lee Zeldin in November are Kate Browning, Elaine DiMasi, Perry Gershon, and Vivian Viloria-Fisher.
