Peninsula Open Studios, located south of San Francisco, hosted exhibitions of artists and photographers each year in the fall. They accepted a certain number of guest artists from out of their area, which is how I started exhibiting and why most of my first shows were in the Bay Area. I participated in this organization for three years. In 2005, their World Council of Arts and Culture selected two of my photographs, "White Horse/Grapevine" and "Crane/Vancouver Island," for their international juried show at the Herbst International Pavilion in the Presidio of San Francisco. My work was also exhibited in December with POS at the Triton Museum, Rose Shenson Pavilion, in Santa Clara. In 2004, POS joined with the Palo Alto Arts Center and Wildlife Rescue for a reception, show and auction. In 2003, their juried show was also at the Herbst International Pavilion, and my "Taj Dawn" and "Clouds, Himalayas, Dal Lake" were selected for that exhibition. Both of these photographs are being exhibited at the Muskan Indian Restaurant in Port Townsend, Washington from 2011 to the present time.
My postcards have been printed through this Oakland-based company. I've dealt with them mostly through the internet. Their guidelines for preparing the files are excellent. They have been fast and accurate more times than I can count. Great customer service reps, too.
Ok. It really isn't a favorite, but it is EXTREMELY important to those of us who create images. You may want to check out this site if you even thought of wanting to download or copy the images in my website. All are protected under copyright law. All parts of the photographs. They may not be used for "derivative" purposes either without infringing on the copyright, as in, you may not use them as the basis for anything you want to create. There are severe penalties and some photographers make a lot of money when they catch their images in use without permission and/or payment of use fees. PLEASE NOTE--NONE OF MY IMAGES ARE PUBLIC DOMAIN.
And a phone number for framing: 360-531-1148, Dan Sutton, CPF
Professional framing by a Certified Picture Framer who cares that fine art and photographs are displayed using archivally safe materials. All of my photos are framed here. And, I'd use Dan for framing even if he weren't my husband! This is a home-based design studio in Port Townsend, WA (Northern Olympic Peninsula). Because Dan is able to avoid many of the costs of a retail store, he keeps his prices well below average, even while using the best materials and techniques.
