LIMITED EDITION PORTFOLIO OF ARTISTIC BASEBALL PHOTOGRAPHY AVAILABLE NOW THROUGH MARQUESS GALLERY
St. Louis, April 1, 2006 --- The growing popularity and demand for the baseball themed photography of Don Marquess has resulted in an issue faced before by many artists whose work has touched a chord with the public - "Where do I display all of these; I admire so many!"
An answer has been provided with the introduction of the first Limited Edition Portfolio of Marquess baseball photography - a handsomely boxed set of 20 original museum quality baseball photographs mounted on 11x14 black archival rag board in a black portfolio presentation case.
The handsome case is an inviting way to obtain 20 of Marquess' finest photographs in a striking presentation piece. Each Crystal Archive print is hand signed and numbered in a limited edition of just 200. The portfolio is priced at $2,500.
Don Marquess has developed a photo style in which elements of the game of baseball - bats, bases, gloves, and primarily the baseballs themselves - are captured in a still life form in the highest grade photographic process. Marquess shoots with 50 ASA film in natural light, without a tripod, producing prints that approximate 95 megapixels in quality - about six times greater than a digital camera produces.
The portfolio includes "The Balls of Summer," "Pastime," "Please…Let it be a Closer," "Safe", "Out of Play", "Winter Ball", "It's Not Just a Guy Thing," "Strike Three," "Great Save," "Caught," "Season's Over," "The Sweet Spot," "Long Ball," "Steppin' Up," "Mr. October," "On the D.L.," "The Wannabe's," "The Patriot," "Still Smokin'" and "Old Glory." All are visible at www.baseballfineart.com.
Don Marquess operates the popular Marquess Gallery in Union Station, St. Louis, a frequent stop for visiting teams and Cardinal players who stay in downtown hotels. A number of Marquess works will be hung in the new Busch Stadium, and a national gallery tour of the work will begin later this year.
The Portfilio can be purchased from this site, or by visiting Marquess Gallery located at 127 Union Station, St. Louis, Missouri., (314) 997-7773. It is open to the public during normal mall hours. Or order toll free at 877 997-7773. Don Marquess is available for interview upon request.
