“Catching Light: The Spark” Has a Gallery Home and More Postcards to Come

First off, I want to give a big Thank-You to Room for Art Gallery and Oak and Front Kitchen + Bar for hosting my photographic artwork over this past weekend in Washington Missouri’s Art Walk. I greatly appreciate the opportunity to share my work with their visitors. I also want to thank everyone who stopped by to visit me at my display table in the entryway of Oak & Front and the restaurant’s wonderful staff. Friday and Saturday couldn’t have been a more pleasant experience.

My new photographic zine, Catching Light: Vol. 1 The Spark is now available for purchase at the Room For Art Gallery in Washington, Missouri. “The Spark” is a 6″x6″ photographic zine printed in full color with UV varnish on high quality paper stock for superior protection. This volume is filled with a selection of 25 of my fine art photographs over the past 25+ years. Each copy of this 100 Limited Edition is signed and numbered. You can find it on the wall featuring myself and other artists from the Mid-Missouri Fine Art Society. If you can’t make a visit to Washington, Missouri, you can always purchase a copy from my online Shop.

Last winter I also began selling some of my postcards at the Missouri’s Trading Post in Hermann, Missouri. Some of those postcards are still in stock and more are coming soon, just in time for the spring/summer traveling seasons. I invite you to stop on by as they are a great source for Hermann and Missouri souvenirs.

Hermann, Missouri Postcards Now Available at Missouri’s Trading Post

I am happy to announce that my new Hermann, Missouri postcards are now up for sale at Missouri’s Trading Post in downtown Hermann, Missouri. I want to give a special thanks to Ruthie Roberts for providing some of her selling space at the Trading Post, where I am able to display a few versions of Hermann, Missouri postcards.

My wife and I have been big fans of Hermann, Missouri for several years, since we began exploring Missouri wines when we started dating. I am now finally in a position to capture and share the wonder beauty and history that Hermann, Missouri has to offer. Each postcard features a picturesque image of Hermann, with the back of the postcard featuring some bit of Hermann you may not have known. With a stamp and your personal note, they are ready for mailing. This postcard project that I began last November has been a fun and fascinating project with the opportunity to learn more about Hermann, its history, and its people.

For example did you know where Hermann, Missouri attributes its name?
From the postcard:

“In the year A.D. 9 the warrior Hermann, then known as Arminius, led an army of the northern Europeans to oppose a Roman intrusion in their homeland. In the ensuing Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, the annihilation of three Roman legions by Hermann’s army has led historians to describe the battle as having changed the course of civilization. The City of Hermann proudly recognizes this hero as its namesake.”

If you have a shop in Hermann, Missouri and would like to feature some of these historic postcards in your store, you can contact me on my website. More Hermann, Missouri postcard designs will be available soon, with Missouri postcards coming this Spring.
