Our Studio Remodeling is Now DONE! 
Sunday, April 3, 2011, 06:42 PM
Of course it took twice as long as we anticipated. But we have added more space to our studio, including some much need storage areas, a better work area, and a greatly improved conference and waiting area.

Along with a comfortable sitting area we have added some nice retro touches. One of our favorite new features, as well as many of our clients, is a wall of vintage 33 rpm album covers. We intend to rotate the theme every few months. Our first album collection is bad "photoshopping" in the days before there was Photoshop. People fly and dance through the air, or are reduced in size to comfortably sit on the black keys of a piano, or on top of an accordion. They are really fun to see!

We also added a new photo area for digitally photographing art work with special cross Polarized copy lighting. Although we still scan most of the original art that we print (we also added a new scanner this year), we are now able to offer a photography alternative for works over 24 X 30 inches. The advantage is the price—high quality digital photo-scans are half the price of an equivalent traditional scan. Even with large sized prints on canvas there is virtually no quality difference. In fact with glossy or varnished paintings we found in a side by side comparison that our photo-scans show far better detail than even the best scanners!

It is fun for our clients and for us to work in a new improved space. Call for an appointment and bring in some work. Let us show you around and what we can do for you!

Saturday September 25th and Sunday September 26 the annual Red Wing area studio tour is once again happening. Stop by anytime between 10 and 5. We are site 13. Here is more information: www.studioramble.com.

This years poster and flyer features Red Wing artist Ardee Rosasco. Ardee had us scan and print her painting of a Mayflower passenger last year. When it came time to pick a cover image we were all in agreement this would be it! Stop by and see Ardee at the Anderson Center, site #2. In fact visit all 13 sites. You will see some great art, hear wonderful music, sample local wine and meet some really friendly artists.

LOLA — Longfellow Art Crawl in South Minneapolis 
Sunday, August 22, 2010, 04:27 PM
I never cease to be amazed at how many really great and hardworking artists there are in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa these days. Everywhere you turn there seems to be another art crawl. But I have to admit I was particularly thrilled to see that the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis is not only hosting a studio tour, but that there are 84 artists at 46 sites!

My father grew up in Longfellow and I spent a lot of time there as a child. When I lived just across the river in St. Paul I was a regular visitor to the Riverview Theatre and area restaurants. Thus I was really pleased to hear that Kendrick Wronski was a part of the Longfellow art tour. We recently printed some large prints (30" to 36") of her work. Copyright Kendrick Wronski.

It is a great neighborhood to visit and live in. Stop by her studio at site number 46. Enjoy...

Cynthia Starkweather-Nelson Exhibit 
Friday, June 18, 2010, 06:44 PM
We recently had the pleasure of printing for Cynthia Starkweather-Nelson for a series of shows she has coming up. The first show is a two person exhibit with Bonnie Cutts at the Unity Church - Unitarian in St. Paul. The show is up until July 31st at 432 Holly Ave, St Paul, MN 55104.

Cynthia, a well know Twin Cities artist and printmaker has been exhibiting for a number of years in Minnesota, the Midwest and around the country. We were excited to be able to reproduce both some of her paintings and a woodblock print. The final print we made for Cynthia's work Shoreline, shown at the right, was 24X36. Click on the image to see it larger.

Russ Bolt at the Mayors Gallery, Boston City Hall 
Saturday, June 5, 2010, 06:28 PM
Russ Bolt, a Boston based photographer who we often print for, has an exhibit titled Chamber Light now up at the Mayor's Gallery at the Boston City Hall.

Russ has been exploring HDR (High Dynamic Range) shooting at Fort Warren in the Boston Harbor. We printed the image shown here at 30X44 and it looked stunning. By combining different exposures Russ held detail in both the brightest highlights and the darkest shadow. It created a wonderfully rich image.

To see more of Russ' work stop by the show, if you are in Boston. Or look at his Website here: www.russbolt.com
