|HAPPENING IN 2013|
I’ve recently added new images in the various portfolios, and I'm planning trips in early summer. So, check back.
Meanwhile, I'm pleased to have two scenes selected for this year's juried Lone Tree photography show and competition. The full exhibition is held at the beautiful Performing Arts Center (10075 Commons Street, Lone Tree), spanning the dates April 20th through June 9th.
Also, one of my Arizona slot canyon shots (Mesa Sunrise) was selected for the Louisville national juried show this summer. The Denver area has several fine photo shows every year, some longer-running, some with more pieces exhibited, but the Louisville show does the best job of presenting and lighting all the work, to the delight and benefit of the photographers and the audiences, alike.
A BIG "SALE" FEATURE COMING IN JULY
Be sure and investigate the new tab on the Home Page. Pull it down and see a wide array of art suitable for gifting, revitalizing a room in your home, or adding impact to your corporate or commercial space.
LIFE ON THE STREET
For one day, that is, you’ll find us participating in one of the longest-running, best-attended street fairs in the Metro area.
Saturday, August 17th, from 9:00 AM through 4:30 PM, we’ll have a booth on Main Street where we’ll be selling frame-it-yourself mounted and matted pictures in three sizes, all marked down 65% from our regular gallery prices. We’ll also be closing out our boxed and single fine art note cards with similar pricing. Come early for the best selection.
NAMED DENVER'S BEST ART GALLERY
This is “old” news (is there such a thing?) but we are still proud of the honor and how it reflects the quality of enterprise we established and ran for more than eight years.
September 1st, 2011, our gallery earned the top spot in the summer's voting for Denver's A*List competition for Art Galleries. We shared the process with more than 80 other art enterprises for the two months of active voting by the public.
In all, we had four consecutive years receiving this recognition. We're proud to have been named by Channel 7-TV as Denver's Best Art Gallery, 2011, '10, '09 and '08.
Thanks again to all our customers, fans and friends.
Over the past ten years a half dozen of our images have been awarded an assortment of First Place and Best in Show titles. January 21st of 2011 we learned we had scored a new honor: the cover of a national magazine!
COWBOYS and INDIANS is profiled here in an industry report: "Cowboys & Indians magazine covers the West and luxury Western lifestyle in a beautifully visual way.
Cowboys & Indians magazine features homes, fashion, art, jewelry, photography, travel, history, food, film and celebrity interviews."
C&I is an American publication with fans throughout the world. Readership for this specialized publication is nearly 2 million.
For the past several years the March issue has been devoted to an annual feature, "Photographing the West." The magazine sponsors a contest and publishes the winning artists' images in a special Collectors edition. Thousands of entries vie for recognition and awards in five categories: Landscape, Portrait, Wildlife, Equine and Action.
My image is named "Twilight Falls." The original shot was done as a horizontal (landscape) composition, but the editors had to modify it for the cover's proportions. This is close to what you'll see on the magazine this month.
The scene is along one of the headwater branches of the Crystal River. This stretch is near Schofield Pass.
We're proud to have produced the image chosen as the face of this popular issue.
LIFE AWAY FROM BRICK AND MORTAR
Recessions can be hard on the “non-essentials” and art of any kind typically exists in the “want to have, love to have” -- can't have right now" world. Because of the drastic fall-off in sales from 2010 through spring of 2012, we reluctantly closed the gallery at SouthGlen. You can see some views of our place in a group of shots under the Portfolios tab.
When conditions and resources permit, I hope to re-open a dedicated gallery. Until then, I invite you to visit our “virtual” gallery periodically and see what is hanging on the various portfolios’ “walls.”
