This weekend is,
That’s right folks, it’s Firebird time again. No offense to the other awesome shows I do, but this one is my favorite and it’s looking to be bigger and better than ever this year. The festival runs from 4pm to whenever the bird has stopped burning, usually 11ish. I will be there as always to sell my art. I hope to see you all at the show too!
Like every show I do, I like to premier a new print. But this year, I have two new prints!
The first of these prints is MOUNTAIN CHAPEL an image I had in my gallery for a while now but stood out to me as an image that would make a good print. The subject is the Dahlgren Chapel in Turner’s Gap Maryland. I saw this chapel in the early morning while hiking with my brother along the Appalachian Trail. Am I the only crazy person who takes a full size SLR camera backpacking?
The second print is THE PHOENIX. This is a print of this yearsFirebird! This is the first time I will have a photograph of the current years bird available as a print at the show. Something else I did different this year is to have it as a black and white print. And another first is that it is my first digital black and white available as a print. Normally I do not do digital B&W, but this image looked best as a black and white so I am giving it a go.
I have had two 5×7′s and two 8×10′s printed on the same awesome metallic pearl paper I use for my color images. If there are leftovers of either image after the show, I will post them for sale here on Monday. If you can’t wait that long or are worried that it will sell out before you can grab one, you can always place a special order which I am accepting now. Any special order received before Monday will get to you in time for Christmas.
Also, lets not forget the print of last years bird, EMBERS GLOW, that I will also have on hand at the show. I have an order placed for postcards with my fingers crossed that they will get here by Friday.
So, remember to come out and see the coolest bonfire around as Phoenixville burns it’s ninth Firebird!
