Nature photography at Grand Superior Lodge

16 posts in this topic

Well, with great thanks to shiner2367 and Cheffrey, who helped make this all happen, Mrs. Catfish and I finished hanging a sampling of my framed, matted and signed nature images at Grand Superior Lodge this afternoon. For those who don't know, GSL is right on the shore of Lake Superior about 10 miles up the shore from Two Harbors.

Shiner is the food and beverages manager there, and Cheffrey the coporate chef for the company that owns GSL, and it was their idea to offer me the chance to hang my art at GSL.

I'm the only nature photographer displaying art there. As well as 16 framed, matted images running from 8x10 to 18x24 displayed in the lounge, restaurant and other public areas of this upscale resort/lodge, I've got matted/mounted/bagged images ready for framing for sale in the gift store.

The showing, which will be permanent, already is a success. Five of my images sold before we were even done hanging the show, so now I've got more work to do to keep the inventory up.

Thanks again, shiner and Cheffrey. grin.gif

Steve,

Glad to hear set-up went well for you. I can't wait to get up there on Wednesday to check out your work.

Tom, at the rate this stuff is selling, you'd better hurry. Before we sat down for lunch, I'd wandered back into the gift store and seen the stock already cut in half. Talk about a shock (a GOOD shock). grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I've got to be in Two Harbors on Tuesday. I think I swing by and see your work first hand. I'll have some lunch while I'm at it.

Catfish,

Congratulations! Good things happen to good people and you are a good man. Is there any place in Ely where you hang pictures?

Ok I just read Deitz's post in the photo section about the show. I didn't copy him I swear. Great minds think a like smile.gif

Thanks, all. Things definitely are looking up. grin.gif

Northlander, drop me an e-mail, will ya? grin.gif

chaff, I don't hang them in Ely now. Most of the places who have space require a pretty big percentage off the sale of the images, and when that's taken out I hardly make a penny. Having gallery space here in Ely would be good for exposure's sake, but that's about it, and I've had five shows here since moving to town in 2004.

Steve,

Call me in the morning before ten. I'm putting more gifts in and you're welcome to hang some stuff if we can find a place for it, and make you look good (The photos, not you grin.gif) How's 10% sound??

Jim, I'll call you.

I assumed you meant making the pics look good. Nothing can really be done to make me look good. Don't you know that's why I'm in full camo in my avatar? grin.gif

Keep it up and good luck to you!!

The wife and I went to Two Harbors to see the in laws so we stopped by GSL to take a look. We really loved what you had hanging and the few that were left in the gift shop.From what we could tell I think you are going to be busy restocking grin.gif That not such a bad thing.

Thanks, jmalm. Glad you liked it. I've got a ton of inventory shipping that I'll get on Wednesday so I can get more down to GSL on Saturday.

And you're right. If it's a problem, it's a darn good one to have. grin.gif
