Pigment Over Metal Leaf Prints

The purpose of this post is to announce a new print offering I’m making available.  If you’d like more information on or would like to order a print, you can use the Contact form to get in touch.

The description is Pigment over Metal Leaf. These are pigment-based giclée prints on specially prepared translucent vellum with metal leaf applied to the back. The vellum is hand coated to accept the inks. After the print is made and has set up, the metal leaf is applied to the back of the print. The vellum is treated to maximise transparency and the luminescence of the leaf shines through the front of the print. Continue reading

New York State Museum Exhibit Submissions

I received an email from a representative of the New York State Museum about an upcoming exhibit they’re hosting of landscape photos of New York State asking if I’d help spread the word.  The text of the presser is copied below.  My only caveat would be; if you want to, to verify what rights you may be signing away by submitting images.  There’s a Terms of Use on the submission link but you may want to check that there is nothing additional that you may be granting them.

ALBANY, NY — The New York State Museum is inviting the public to submit their digital photographs of scenic New York State landscapes, the best of which will be showcased in an upcoming Museum exhibition and displayed on the Museum website and Flickr page.

Scenic landscapes exist in every corner of New York State and are often found on picture perfect postcards that read “wish you were here.” The State Museum’s exhibition, Wish You Were Here! New York State Photographed by You will open in the State Museum’s West Hall Corridor on September 3, featuring a selection of the best landscape photographs submitted by the public. These can be photographs of a beloved vacation spot or even the backyard, neighborhood street or other favorite place. Images chosen for the exhibition, as well as others that are submitted, will also appear on the Museum’s website. Photographs will still be accepted after September 3, since new ones will continually be added to both the gallery and website.

Wish You Were Here will complement another exhibition in the Museum’s adjacent West

Gallery —   Not Just Another Pretty Place: The Landscape of New York. Also opening on September 3, this will be the first exhibition of landscape art to be culled from the Museum’s vast collections.

Those wishing to submit photos for Wish You Were Here will find further information at
