These are just exquisite together. The colors are so vivid against the matte dark grey background. This series will be offered in a limited, signed edition. I am that excited about them! Currently they are exhibited without glass: the subtle grays and blacks are lost in the reflections of normal glass. There is a great solution, and that is museum glass, but we will have to arrange for that in a special order, as museum glass needs to be custom ordered and the cost is, well, museum-level cost. Museum glass is not only UV protective, but it is laminated with films that cut the reflectivity. It is some kind of magic technology that allows the true colors and all the detail to be seen, as if the glass were not even there.
As the Monarch butterflies are migrating through our area at this very moment, and the last of the other butterflies are still in the fields, these posters are reminders of fleeting summertime.
They are really stunning, and I hope they find homes together though individually they do hold up well. Come see them on display at Cville Arts gallery, or soon at the Crozet Artisans Depot.
