This year we had the opportunity to donate framing for the 10×10 show at the Coconino Center for the Arts, hosted by the Flagstaff Arts Council.
Each artist who needed framing was invited to come into our shop and choose any framing combination they desired. This collaboration resulted in over $10,000 in donated custom frames. All the artwork was then donated by the individual artists to the Flagstaff Arts Council to be displayed together in the annual 10×10 show; 100 works of art, selling at $100 each.
We’re doing something a little different this year to celebrate our 15th anniversary.
Starting in June, we will be open Saturdays from 10am to 3pm, to better serve our framing customers. That includes order pickup, new order placement and design consultation.
See you Saturday!
Working with the Overland Expo is great! To celebrate their 10th anniversary, they held a photography contest and got hundreds of submissions. Somehow, they came up with eight finalist photographs, which we printed, laminated and mounted to silver dibond. The images will be displayed in downtown Flagstaff at the “Gear and Beer” events, then in a central tent at the expo itself.
Originally, the Expo was thinking about just printing the images and mounting them to gator foam. While we love that method for keeping things simple, it isn’t exactly weather-proof, and judging by the weather at the last two Overland Expo evens, we suggested something a little more protective. The luster laminate will reduce glare from harsh sunlight *and* provide a waterproof layer to ensure the photograph stays looking its best! The aluminum mount is sturdy enough to withstand getting knocked about a little in the wind, and is much more weather-resistant than gator foam.
We are looking forward to camping out at the Overland Expo and chatting with photographers from all over the world!
The event is May 20-22 at Mormon Lake Lodge, just outside Flagstaff.
Sometimes, you just want to grab your camera and make photographs of something for fun. We spent a delightful hour with Flagstaff’s Narrow Chimney Reading Series last night at Uptown Pubhouse, doing just that. Continue reading
We’ve been carrying and processing traditional black and white film since the beginning, and we still offer Fuji Acros 100 as well as Kodak Tri-X 400 in 35mm and 120 sizes.
To compliment our black and white offerings, we are now carrying a variety of color negative film as well!
You may have heard recently that some color labs are no longer returning negatives on color processing. If you take your film to your old standby color lab / drugstore, chances are you won’t be getting your negatives back.
We can fix that.
If you bring us your color film, E-6, C41, we can have it processed and scanned for you in about 10 days. We promise, you’ll get your negatives back.
Give us a call: 928-527-1847 and we will get you squared away.
