A BIRD’S-EYE VIEW OF MEMORIAL STADIUM


In 1954, the Orioles moved into Memorial Stadium, starting a love affair with Maryland baseball fans that has lasted six decades.


Memorial Stadium,” my new silkscreen print debuting in October, offers a “bird’s-eye view” of the venerable old ballpark, featuring its iconic art deco facade and majestic light towers, the vintage Gunther logo on the scoreboard, and the handsome rowhouses beyond the outfield wall.


I have believed in ‘Orioles Magic’ since my childhood, and I still visit the old stadium site to relive the memories.


I will begin pulling the 11-color 16-x-20-inch print in late September and it will be available at my shows and shops for the Christmas season. The price is $85 unframed and $135 framed.

PRINT MARKS GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY OF LEWES FERRY


Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014, the Cape May-Lewes Ferry is the largest of Delmarva’s five car ferries and the third to be featured in my “Believe in Ferries” silkscreen print series.


Lewes Ferry,” a nine-color 16-x-20-inch design, shows the MV New Jersey, launched in 1974, passing the Delaware Breakwater East End Light as seen from one of my favorite getaway spots, Cape Henlopen State Park.


The edition debuted Labor Day Weekend at the yArt Sale in Bethany Beach and prints sell for $85 unframed and $135 framed.


Other prints in the series included “Oxford Ferry” and “Whitehaven Ferry.”

GRACIAS, MERCI, DANKE, GRAZI …


— Thanks to my daughters, Alison and Molly Sahler, who came into the part-time employ of Erick Sahler Serigraphs in July. Alison, 14, is in charge of managing and packaging notecard sales. Molly, 11, assists in framing and packaging prints. Both are an invaluable addition to the operation.


— Thanks to Jon and Jane Richstein, owners of Sundial Books in Chincoteague. Jon won the 2013 ESS Salesman of the Year award and is about to walk away with top honors again in 2014. Sundial carries great stuff and caters to its customers. Plus Jon and Jane work seven days a week from Easter to Labor Day without coming up for air. I am grateful for their efforts.


— Every Labor Day weekend for about a decade, Nick and Julie Kypreos of Bethany Beach have turned over their home to 20 artist friends for the annual two-day yArt Sale, which also benefits a worthy cause in the community. It’s the best run outdoor show I’ve participated in, with great artists and crafters, and a steady stream of customers. And to top it off, it’s free to participate and free to attend. Thank you to Nick and Julie (and their kids) for their longstanding commitment to the arts.


— Thanks to Molly Hilligoss at Beach to Bay Times and the editors at the Cape Gazette in Lewes for featuring Erick Sahler Serigraphs in your publications this summer. There are lots of really great artists out there to cover. I appreciate you shining the spotlight on me.


— And finally, thanks to you and all the others who have supported me since I first had the crazy idea to create and produce Eastern Shore silkscreen prints back in 2009. It’s been an awesome five years and I can’t imagine doing anything else.


All the best,

CHESAPEAKE BLUE CRABS MAKE A HUGE COMEBACK


The “Blue Crabs” are back and they are bigger than ever!


This summer I reprinted one of my most popular designs ever. The original five-color 11-x-14-inch “Blue Crabs” edition of 160 prints sold out quickly after it was released in 2013. The larger reprint is 16 x 20 inches of eye-popping bright blue and orange (triple — yes, triple! — pulled for incredible vibrancy).


There are 150 prints in the re-release, which sell for $85 unframed and $135 framed. There are also 12 Edition Varie prints available in sand, green and blue, which sell for $295 framed.

CONGRATULATIONS TO FURST BROS. OF BALTIMORE


Congratulations to Furst Bros., the oldest family-owned frame manufacturer in the United States, on its recent move from South Baltimore to, well, a little further South Baltimore.


Erick Sahler Serigraphs has used Furst Bros. custom-made, eco-friendly frames for about a year. I delight in their high quality and exceptional service, and I’m proud to use their products to show off my artwork.


I was fortunate to visit the original Furst Bros. site in the shadow of the Ravens stadium in July. Located where the business opened in 1865, it was a jaw-dropping tour through dark stone rooms that looked more like a castle dungeon than a modern high-tech enterprise.


Best wishes to Furst Bros. and may you enjoy another century and a half in your new digs.
