THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT


The new year is only six weeks old, but it has gotten off to a roaring start here at Erick Sahler Serigraphs. I’ve already debuted three new prints -- “Big Assawoman,” the large “Catnap” and “City Park” -- and more are in the works, including a new series featuring the great foods of the Eastern Shore.


And it’s all possible because of the support you offer through your kind words and purchases. They keep me going. So, thank you. I am grateful.


All the best,

 

SUNNY MEMORIES OF SALISBURY’S CITY PARK


The footbridge and bandstand are iconic landmarks in Salisbury’s beautiful City Park, and many Eastern Shore folks claim a personal relationship with them.


For me, it is where my grandparents celebrated after graduating from Wicomico High in 1939, left, and it’s where my friends and I went to unwind after prom in 1985. For the late Salisbury native and poultry magnate Frank Perdue, it’s where he filmed his first national TV commercial.


“City Park,” the newest print in the “My Hometown” series,  celebrates the iconic structures as well as the natural beauty of the landscape. The 14-color print measures 16 x 20 inches and sells for $115 framed and $75 unframed.


It will debut Feb. 22 at the Better Living Show at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center, and will be available afterward at Bishop’s Stock in Snow Hill, Bungalow Love in Berlin, Sundial Books in Chincoteague, Sunnyside Shop in Cambridge and at www.ErickSahler.com.

 

ARTCARD GREETINGS FROM ERICK SAHLER SERIGRAPHS!


A giant thank you to Bryan and Lisa Bailey of Print N Ship in Princess Anne for making the extra effort to ensure my ArtCard prints are of the highest quality. Matching colors from silkscreen prints to digital prints is tricky, and the Baileys have been extremely patient in working with me to produce outstanding reproductions of my work. I am grateful for their standing commitment to excellence.


This month, “Bare Assateague,” “Big Assawoman” and “O.C. Boardwalk” joined the ever-expanding line of ArtCards. There are now 22 images available.


ArtCards sell for $1.50 each, or four for $5. They are available at Bungalow Love in Berlin, Sundial Books in Chincoteague, Sunnyside Shop in Cambridge and at www.ErickSahler.com.

I AM OFFICIALLY CERTIFIABLE (SO TO SPEAK)


Screen printers and graphic artists can take online exams through the American Screen Printing Association to certify their skills and get listed on the industry trade group’s website. I passed both exams in January and am one of just two shops in Maryland to earn both the Certified Graphic Artist and Certified Screen Printer distinctions.


While the certification is more valuable to commercial businesses seeking print-job customers, it was rewarding to receive the “official stamp” validating my processes. Because there are some days when I do wonder ...


You can see my listing here.

 

‘DOWNTOWN SALISBURY’ EDITION SELLS OUT


If you are one of the lucky owners of my “Downtown Salisbury” silkscreen print, congratulations! It is now a collector’s item, as the entire edition has sold out.


”Downtown Salisbury” was the first piece in the “My Hometown” series. In February 2013, the last three prints in the edition of 45 were purchased, and “Downtown” became the first sold-out Erick Sahler Serigraph. It will never be reprinted in its original format.


A note of interest: “Downtown” is the last print in which I hand-cut each color separation using Rubylith film, a process that dates to the earliest days of silkscreen printing. I now draw each separation using the Freehand illustration program on an Apple computer.
