A Holiday Message

Here we are once again on Christmas Eve, a time when the anticipation of the holiday season transforms into celebration and reflection with family and loved ones. I hope you have the opportunity to spend quality time with those special people or engage in an activity that you enjoy.

With each passing year of life (my birthday was yesterday), the more I understand that the greatest gift at this time of year is not within a package underneath the tree, but rather the opportunity to reflect upon and share the experiences we've enjoyed throughout the past year and anticipate what's to come in the next. As a nature and landscape photographer, I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to witness some of the most beautiful locations and phenomena in the natural world and to share, as best as I can, a small piece of that with you. To continue to do that is truly the best gift I receive every year.

My best wishes to you for a safe, enjoyable holiday season and prosperity in the new year. There is much to look forward to on the trail ahead!

Merry Christmas!

Art at Ramsey and Year-End Display Piece Sale

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you have an opportunity to spend some time with the people in your life for which you are thankful and indulge in whatever makes the holiday special for you.

For those of you who'll be in the Twin Cities on Saturday, December 3, there's one more opportunity this year to see my work or pick up a one of my display pieces at a great price (more on that below).

Art at Ramsey

Art at Ramsey is a high-quality juried art and fine craft event that takes place Saturday, December 3 (from 10am – 5pm) inside the Ramsey Middle School gymnasiums and cafeteria at 1700 Summit Avenue in Saint Paul. I will be among about 70 regional artists exhibiting work, so there is plenty 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 pieces that have traveled with me and have been displayed at shows for the past 1-3 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.

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 free to most locations in the Upper Midwest. Any piece not sold prior to December 3 will be available at Art at Ramsey as noted above.

Fall 2016 Art Fair Schedule

Greetings everyone!

I know, I know! It's hard to believe that in less than a month, we will be in the midst of fall color season here in Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. For me, it's even harder to believe that I'll be packing up my outdoor art fair canopy, for the last time this year, in just a little over three weeks.

If you haven't had a chance yet this year to check out my newest work, here are some remaining opportunities. These are events I will be exhibiting my work at through the end of the year:
I hope to see you soon!
