Saturday, September 5, 2009, 03:49 PMWe have once again worked with textile artist Mary Anne Wise photographing the wonderful Guatemalan fabric pieces she gets from that countries weavers. Proceeds from the sale of the works goes to Friendship Bridge who in turn gives micro loans to the weavers. This years project was particularly nice to work on since the photographs have been published as a book.
This years show and sale will be held in Denver CO at the Rug Source - Denver Design Center 595 South Broadway #126 E Denver, CO 80209. Having seen last years show, I can guarantee you will find some great pieces. It was a joy to photograph them.
Here is information on the project, show and the book: http://www.friendshipbridge.org

Monday, August 24, 2009, 02:41 PMWe print for artists in a wide variety of mediums. Scott Khron, a high school art teacher from Blaine MN, produces some of the finest colored pencil drawings I have ever seen. His speciality is details of the Lake Superior landscape. This year one of his works was accepted into the prestigious 17th Annual show of the Colored Pencil Society of America in Atlanta Georgia. Scott went down for the opening and convention and mingled with all of the superstars of the colored pencil world.
And here is Scotts work, including his drawing from the exhibit: www.mnartists.org/artistHome.do?rid=134275.

What a great surprise to see one of the paintings we recently printed as the opening image of an article on the best shops and products in the Twin Cities. Eric’s work is available at Casa Verde in Minneapolis. He is also a regular in the Art-A-Whirl in Northeast Minneapolis.

If you are looking for a great resource for information on art fairs to attend as an artist to sell your work, or art buyer looking for great art work for your walls, look no further than Midwest Art Fairs magazine. The semiannual magazine lists every art fair you could possibly want to go to from major jurried street fairs like the Uptown Art Fair, to free arts and craft fairs at the local mall parking lot. We have once again taken out the inside cover as a full page color ad.
As is our practice the ad features not us, but some of our many artists we print for. Here is the ad. We have also scanned a number of images for the publishers for the cover over the years.
