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:

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”.

The hovering ruby-throated hummingbird nips nectar from a morning glory, enjoying a breakfast beverage, a motionless in-flight meal, the power of the flower. These hummers beat their wings as fast as 53 times per second to hold their bills still for sipping.

Also on display will be a vast assortment of Charley’s serigraphs, lithographs, giclee prints, and posters, as well as some originals. Charley & Edie’s son Brett will be the host, and we will have light refreshments on hand.

We hope to see you at our celebration!

A Cincinnati Artist with Universal Appeal: Myra Baumes

Local artist Myra Baumes is known for her charming Cincinnati neighborhood scenes. Although they often depict Cincinnati mainstays like The Blind Lemon and Mt. Adams Bar & Grill, as well as our city’s distinct skyline, her beautifully saturated urban scenes have universal appeal. Check out a sampling of her work in the slideshow! All of the pieces are available, framed, at our downtown location: 17 West Fourth Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. Enjoy!
