in these days of colder weather, nothing warms up the heart like fiddling with blog settings – I hope at least.
I will be changing this site to exclusively represent Studio Liink, the artist’s print studio, offering updated information about our printing an other services.
Red Door Gallery has grown into it’s own site at redgallerydoor.com with a blog feature to talk about our gallery work, receptions and the arts at redgallerydoor.com/blog. As both functions are housed under one roof and the same ownership, please forgive any cross overs in the presentation in the past – as these businesses grew into their specific sections of the art market, one little step at a time, over the last year. The gallery work is most exciting and has brought new artists into our town and is committed in the future to bring you the best and most creative works in photography, contemporary art and some sculpture. The schedule for 2013 is taking shape and promises a great show year for 2013.
Studio Liink is entirely dedicated to custom fine art print work with the latest technology, extensive art reproduction work and a highly personal and involved working relationship with artists, offering a custom fine art print specialized “plug in” of sorts to their own studio work. SL approaches every job as a unique effort and co-operation between the artist and the printer, we leave all the cookie cutter pre-set print work to many internet providers, focused on the in and out fast and cookie cutter print work.
SL just added a new service: fine art custom framing with a great assortment of European mouldings to choose from – becoming a one stop shop from print work to the finished framed art project, ready for the art market of collector.
The possibilities in creative print work are only limited by the amount of time and expense committed to it – one can achieve amazing results in creating fine art editions, limited or open ended and even more interesting use the digital tools set as a part of creating the final output of art work, by mixing the stages of painting and print work in a continuous creative process – I will blog about this soon in detail with a project with the artist Janet Crittenden in a project that creatively mixed the artist’s own traditional brush work with digital stages to create some amazing print work.
If you have any questions just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
welcome back to this blog and let me introduce you to a few recent changes:
We decided to move the Red Door Gallery art show articles and show shots – anything RDG related – to the above noted page Red Door Gallery, the link to be found in the header and also tie it into the redgallerydoor.com site. Just to sort out a bit better what is the actual gallery work and the print work at Studio Liink – still connected as it is all under the same roof and ownership: SL is more a fine art production function and RDG a fine art showcase and art publishing venue.
Somewhere, hidden in all of this, is our overall concept, the pairing of fine art print work and fine art show work going hand in hand, seeking to make the most of modern tools and art venues, chasing after recent changes in the art market as they might evolve in front of our eyes.
On another note: Finley Fryer fans walking by our RDG window will notice the Finley Fryer sculpture “Stealth Angel” missing in our window, don’t despair! The statue and most of Finley’s studio content have migrated down to Davis for a sizable Finley Fryer Art show at the Natsoulas Center in Davis. We promise to have a Fryer statue back in the window as soon as the show concludes!
Make note for the show reception down in Davis on January 13th, 2012 7-9 pm
Exhibition dates are Jan 4 – Jan 28 2012.
We will see you there!
If I am not all alone in this ………………might it be a good time to create a ride-share hotspot, specifically for the culturally deprived amongst us?? I know I would be on board for any good excuse to hit the City and other culture hot spots for a good show and company. Let me know if others feel such a need and we could even make the RDGallery a ride-share hub?? Heck, just email me at email@example.com if you have a ride, an itch to go and need/want sharers and I post it in my window!?? It is peak-oil times we live in, not at all peak-art times, not at all.
More asap – do let us know on your wishes for this site, it sure would be a win to have some feed back.
best and thanks for visiting us in 2011!
A friendly tip to any of you expressing in recent days some interest in the Limited Edition “Stan” prints by Finley Fryer, most likely with this big show in Davis, the great deal we do offer for the first 30 prints out 150 aren’t going last too much longer. I will be writing a little more about “Stan the print” in the next days.
a little sneak peak at some Red Door Gallery directions for 2012…………
we will have a Cynthia Henderson show starting late January and have Roman Loranc’s commitment for an exciting photography show this summer, silver gelatin prints by a master fine art photographer / printer. Other then that – I am looking also into some far away places for some additional photography work to build the desired balance of contemporary art and photography in our shows, that will be the leitmotive of RDG show work for the future. These are truly the days of new evolutionary steps in the arts – a new era might have been past due for some time and we could call it post-post-post- something done already, ahh… or just something actually really new!??
Plus a little sneak peak into the future per se…………………….As a visual artist, I do feel like a puppy in a PetMart, endless possibilities in front of the nose. These are exciting times indeed. There were a few radical shifts in our history; from the discovery of the letter,the clay plate to scratch on, of the number Zero, the Guttenberg press, the camera, the photograph…………..not any and all of it as radical as the building of a (muddy) human consciousness through the internet, turning the world upside down and then again, a good springtime to all in this new “human2human” world.
Let 2012 be a fresh beginning with not too much old and outdated ballast on board. Business as usual just got us what; 2008/09 and still sinking with a tiny singular percent exception to this strangely odd rule!??
Bear with me as I test the waters on this fancy blog set up by John Rickard.
Anyway, since May 27th it has become a sudden reality. After searching for a shop for my Fine Art print work, we happened upon this small space right in the middle of Mount Shasta on main street and created the Red Door Gallery, showing frequent art shows in photography and contemporary art, in addition to the Studio Liink work shop.
So you can find either: Studio Liink, the artist’s print shop and Red Door Gallery under one small roof in the Elks building on main street.
We are posting a minimum schedule of Wednesday – Saturday from Noon to 5 PM, as we are often on assignment and still have to work at the remote photography studio as well – but will be present many more hours for your visit, especially on holiday weekends!
For any contact, please use the email contact: firstname.lastname@example.org as I am a bit hearing challenged and have grown a heck of a dislike for the phone ( 530 859 9306 if you don’t mind frequent ” haah??”s )
Here I will give you a bit a preview of this great show we have set up for you, until the affiliated web site: Red Door Gallery is all up and running.
Come and see this for yourself – it is a great show!
This back wall composite shows some of Aleksander Balos’, especially this FA print of “Superman” on an Ultra Smooth FA paper 20×32″ open edition for only $ 290 and the most recent painting: “Scooter in Mount Shasta”.
The B&W Mount Shasta landscape print is one of my own works in a Limited Edition of 69 at $ 296.
Anyway, please visit us often, when you are on main street in Mount Shasta!
Heinz @ Studio Liink& RDG
Please allow me a few quick notes on Studio Liink, evolving from the FAQs collected from visitors.
SL is a high-end art print shop focused on creating archival pigment ( aka giclee ) print work for the art and gallery markets on an international level. We are working with the latest print and ink technology from Epson and Canon, paired with extensive visual arts insights and a radical service commitment to work with the artist, to create edition work for the market in a team approach. The artist’s and printer’s vision has to match on a creative level to create really outstanding print work, simple as that. We take the time to build a progressive relationship with the artist, every piece is a unique project from start to finish.
SL does prefer to have a good look at your project and out put ideas, then prepares a binding project bid, providing peace of mind for the client – you never pay for any work not up to your standards, or not full filling the work order, period. And you will know your cost upfront, if there are any changes as we move along, they will be signed off by the client, before we do apply added work.
Your art work is in most cases, not just another mass product, but a very unique, novel piece of work and so do we regard every incoming work request – a unique and one of a kind project……..not a cookie cutter pre-set project …….there are many internet based solutions for that – we are not another quantity oriented shop, we do quality work in a co-op with the creator and do so with the latest tech and on an international level – c’est ca. Pretty simple really.
You can see some of our work at the Red Door Gallery, as it showcases SL edition work and original art as well.
see you soon!
