A Holiday Message

As the season transforms from the hustle and bustle of racing to the store for that last-minute gift, sealing dozens of envelopes full of greeting cards, and pulling that last batch of cookies out of the oven to spending quality time with loved ones and engaging in activities we enjoy, I want to take a moment to wish you a joyous holiday season and thank you for another amazing year!

I look forward to seeing you on the trails ahead!

Art at Ramsey and Year-End Artwork Sale

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you have an opportunity to enjoy the day with loved ones, maybe indulge in some turkey and pumpkin pie, and reflect upon the meaning of the holiday.

For those of you who'll be in the Twin Cities on Saturday, December 2, there's one last opportunity this year to see my work or pick up a one of my display pieces at a great price (more on that below...it's kind of like my version of Black Friday).

Art at Ramsey

Art at Ramsey is a high-quality juried art and fine craft event that takes place Saturday, December 2 (from 10am – 5pm) inside the Ramsey Middle School gymnasiums and cafeteria at 1700 Summit Avenue in Saint Paul, MN. I will be among about 80 regional artists exhibiting work, so there is a good variety of talent to see if you visit.

Year-End Display Piece Sale

Near the end of the year, I typically offer a selection of my art fair display pieces at discounted prices. These are generally pieces that have traveled with me and have been displayed at shows for the past 1-4 years. As a result, they may have minor flaws or may not be quite as squeaky clean as a brand new piece. However, most are in excellent condition. Others are overstock pieces or prints in overstock frames.

If you are interested in the availability or condition of a particular piece, please feel free to contact me (dbarthel@northshoreimages.com or 320-293-1788). Shipping is either free or low cost to most locations in the Upper Midwest. Any piece not sold prior to December 2 will be available at Art at Ramsey as noted above.

Fall Art Fair Schedule Announced


Many thanks to everyone who has visited us at an art festival this year! It has been an interesting season with regard to weather, but overall, the year has been a good one. We have fully recovered from that powerful storm back in mid-June in Excelsior that walloped our booth.

Our art fair schedule for the remainder of the year is now solidified. If you haven't yet visited us this year, we welcome you to stop in at one of the following events and see my latest work.
Our complete 2017 schedule can be seen at www.northshoreimages.com/Schedule.

Midsummer "Up North" Art Fairs


It's now summer in the northern hemisphere and, outside of a little stormy weather (see below), our art festival season has been off to a great start! It's been a pleasure seeing so many familiar faces already this year. The next several weeks take us to communities in greater Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Dakota. Please come and visit if you are in any of these areas. We will return to the Twin Cities in August for the Uptown Art Fair.
