And a Painted Bunting in a Pear Tree….

It is a tradition at Fabulous Frames & Art to offer a new adornment every year based off of a Charley Harper design and this year a dynamic duo was chosen. The Piece ‘Painted Bunting’ will be featured on adornments and ornaments along with its traditional serigraph format.

Originally released in 1974 this pair has been waiting almost 40 years to make to a come back. They are best described in Charley’s words:

Charley Harper
Serigraph

“Wow! Over there! Perched on the palmetto! Ever see such complimentary complementary colors? The painted bunting, adult male, is a bird you must see to believe, but that’s not easy. With all that direct male advertising in living color, you might expect him to come on like a billboard, but he shyly shuns the boulevard for the underbrush. Next to him, his mate is regular plain Jane. Why? So she won’t turn a nest building with baby buntings into a dead giveaway”.

Cold Weather & ‘Cool Carnivore’

photoThe chant ‘Who-Dey’ can be heard all around Cincinnati on any given Sunday but this week it will be heard loud and clear Thursday night as the Bengals take on the Dolphins and try to improve their record to 7-2.

This football fever has even reached the Charley Harper collection as his ‘Cool Carnivore’ print from 1979 seems to mimic the exhaustion that our hometown team feels after each game.

The original intention behind the print was to bring into focus the effect of excessive hunting of the Bengal tiger and what that might mean to the livelihood of the species. In fact, the year that the “Cool Carnivore” print was released another tiger, the Javan tiger, was hunted into extinction.

More recently the Bengal tiger has been recognized as having the largest population of any endangered tiger species and is on track to maintain that status.

photo 2With roughly 2500 Bengal tigers worldwide and 100 times as many Cincinnati football fans* its not a surprise that the “Cool Carnivore” has started to show his face on snazzy tailgating accessories like our mugs and glasses.

Tune in this Thursday at 8:30 to catch the Kick off of the Cincinnati Bengals and turn up to one of our five locations to view “Cool Carnivore” for yourself!

Our May Downtown Doggie Day is Almost Here

Our May Downtown Doggie Day takes place on Saturday the 4th, between the hours of 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM.

Fabulous Frames and Art is thrilled to partner with local artist Marc Wavra for a series of in-store pet portrait events at our downtown Cincinnati location. His exceptional skill as an art photographer, combined with his love of all animals, makes him the ideal person to bring out your pet’s unique personality.

His custom 15″x15″ stretched canvases are a brilliant alternative to the standard animal portraits offered at pet stores. A session lasts approximately 5-10 minutes, and results in a treasured image that is both a keepsake and a work of art. Please join us for this special occasion. We will be serving light refreshments (treats and water) for your furry friends. If you require a sitting at a specific time, reservations are recommended. Walk-ins are welcome on a first come first served basis. Don’t live in the Cincinnati area? Never fear! Marc can also work off of your high quality photograph.

For more information, or to schedule a sitting, please contact us at: 513.579.9998 or alicia@fabframes.com.
