On sharing space with "Discover Craft NC"
April 6 - May 26, 2007
When I moved to Caldwell County nine years ago, the
first North Carolina craftspeople I discovered were musicians. I
was amazed by them then and I am amazed by them now.
Most of the 22 photographs I've selected for this show were
created for CDs produced in conjunction with the annual Caldwell
County Traditional Musicians Showcases. These photographs are
identifiable by their titles which include the name of the associated
I've also selected a handful of photographs to complement the "Showcase" images.
Some share an affinity with the musical images; some are
simply eclectic works which I've always wanted to try out on
a gallery wall.

would if you walked into the gallery in person.
Technical notes &
Things you need to know. . .
All prints offered for sale are photographic
prints on Kodak Endura paper. Displayed properly, they'll outlive
you and your children. However, framed prints shown in this exhibit
have not been prepared using archival materials. The glass is
not UV-resistant. The mats and mounting boards are buffered but
not acid-free. Mats for the exhibition prints were cut from Crescent
SRM987. Frames are gun metal aluminum, profile P1, from FramingSupplies,
Inc. of Hendersonville.
Framed prints offered for sale are mounted using "archival
corners" for easy removal and remounting using the buyer's
preferred mats and materials. "Transit of Venus" and "Portage
Lake" are permanently mounted to non-archival mounting boards
and thus are not offered for sale as framed works.
There's only one framed instance of
available, but all print-only offers are unlimited editions.
Prints can be signed by request. Just use the "message
to seller" field
during check out to tell me that you'd like your print signed,
and I'll oblige with an enthusiastic scrawl in the lower right.
You and your framer can decide whether to expose it below the
mat or not. Also, there's nothing sacred about
the sizes offered: I
realize that what works in a spacious gallery might not work in
your living room. When you place your order, include a note if
you'd like me to get in touch to discuss alternate sizes. I can't
really reduce pricing much since you're mostly covering time already
invested in finishing an image rather than out-of-pocket lab and
materials costs, but I'll be happy to work with you to make sure
you get a print that's appropriate to your available space.
You're welcome to use your credit card, and you
do not need to join or to be a member of Paypal to order.
Web-based sales of prints featured in this
show during its run (orders placed in April & May 2007), will benefit
the Caldwell Arts Council exactly
as if you'd purchased the print in person at the Gallery in Lenoir,
North Carolina. Prints purchased through the Gallery will be available shortly after the
show concludes in late May; prints ordered through the website
will be delivered in 2-3 weeks. Purchase of framed work will need
to be arranged through the Caldwell Arts Council Gallery. Contact
information and their street address are on their website: www.caldwellarts.com.
Prints sold through this website will
be shipped rolled via USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.
Priority shipping for one print to any US or Canadian address
will be $6.00. Buy
two or more and the shipping is free. Of course there
is a governor's cut: a 7% sales tax will be added for
prints delivered to my neighbors in NC. If anything arrives
damaged, just send it home for a replacement; I'll cover shipping both ways.
After this show. . .
Can't make it to Lenoir during the show? Some
of the prints shown in Lenoir and others yet to be decided
will be shown in July at Mayne Williams Public Library in Johnson
City, Tennessee, and in August or September at the Seila Gallery
on the campus of Caldwell Community College & Technical
Institute in Hudson, North Carolina.
