If you haven’t been to downtown Cambridge in a while, you’re in for a treat. The empty storefronts have been filling with vibrant new businesses, including a number of excellent restaurants, fashionable shops and even a brew pub. Through this transformation, one business has been out in front, leading the way.

Opened nine years ago on a bright corner at 500 Poplar Street, Sunnyside is a gem of a shop showcasing hip clothes and fun tees, and incredible handmade jewelry, artwork and housewares that reflect the free-wheeling spirit of its owner, Heidi Griebel. “It’s differ’nt,” she sometimes hears from the folks who stop in. And “differ’nt” is a good thing.

Erick Sahler Serigraphs prints — including “Choptank Light” featuring the new lighthouse at Long Wharf — as well as our postcards, notecards and tees have been available at Sunnyside since last fall. We are grateful for their support as well as their positive influence on the resurgence of downtown Cambridge.

Shop hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Call 410-901-9009.


Just in time for the holiday season, Erick Sahler Serigraphs has introduced a line of Eastern Shore Christmas Cards. Digitally printed on warm white 80-pound cardstock by our friends at Print N Ship in Princess Anne, the eight-card sets contain four unique designs featuring a Chesapeake Bay crab, a school of rockfish, a container of Old Bay and a deadrise workboat (suffer groan-inducing puns in the artwork above).

Boxed sets are $15, and single cards are $3. They are available at Bishop’s Stock in Snow Hill, Bungalow Love in Berlin, Sundial Books in Chincoteague and Sunnyside in Cambridge. Eastern Shore Christmas Cards will also be available at all our shows through December.


During the Dorchester Arts Showcase in September, we overheard a young couple talking in detail about the E2-C Hawkeye featured in our “Wallops Island” print. Turns out, the woman — whose Navy handle is “Panda” — is a pilot on a fleet of military aircraft based in Norfolk, including No. 641 depicted in our print. “I fly it all the time,” she told us.

We shared our tale of how we photographed the plane as it buzzed in low, doing touch-and-goes at Wallops. “Yep, that was probably me,” she said.

Two weeks later, we realized the fortunate timing of our encounter, as the last of the 80-print “Wallops Island” edition sold out.

It started as a joke.

When Erick Sahler Serigraphs launched in the fall of 2011, we screenprinted several dozen designs on vinyl stickers to give away at shows, hoping to attract some attention to our work. One of the more popular ones was a simple typographical illustration stating “Make Mine Scrapple.”

Our friends at Barefoot Willy’s Tees in Pittsville silkscreened the design on scrapple-colored tees (yep, they’re brownish-gray, just like scrapple) and the shirts became one of our runaway hits of the summer. For whatever reason, scrapple lovers are a passionate lot.

Our super soft all-cotton heavyweight tees are “chino” printed for that faded “vintage” look, and are available in all adult sizes for $20 each. Look for them at Bungalow Love in Berlin, Sundial Books in Chincoteague and Sunnyside in Cambridge, and at all our shows through the end of the year.



Most Sahler family birthdays over the past 20 years have been celebrated with a plate of Mondo Wings and a rack of barbecued ribs at Adam’s in Fruitland. So we were thrilled this fall when Pete Roskovich, the owner of Adam’s, asked for some help redecorating his main dining room.

Within a week, nine framed Erick Sahler Serigraphs prints adorned the walls. Featured are two designs celebrating Salisbury University, where Pete graduated and played on a national championship lacrosse team, and a rare artist proof of our sold-out “Downtown Salisbury” print.

A giant thank you to Pete and Adam’s for their support. And for making the best Buffalo wings on the Eastern Shore.

And another giant thank you to Deborah Everett and the Maryland Wine Bar for featuring our artwork in their serving rooms during September. The Maryland Wine Bar is a cozy hideaway on Berlin’s charming Main Street that serves — you guessed it — wines made in the state of Maryland. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the comfortable atmosphere makes for the perfect place to while away an afternoon discovering some of the great wines produced by Maryland vintners (hint: don’t miss the Boordy chardonnay). 

Well, it’s been another extraordinary year for Erick Sahler Serigraphs. As we gear up for the big holiday rush, we thank every one of you for your support. And stay tuned. There are some great new prints already in the works for 2014.

All the best,
