Thank  you to the worker bees at London Drugs in the Photo Department and especially to Manager Mariann who printed off and foam-cored the backs of the bamboo papered images and printed the “Fungus” images on canvas.

 

Also on display at London Drugs are the amazingly reproduced purses, coasters and puzzles that London Drugs does for me using my original artwork of commissioned paintings as well as self-motivated paintings.

Media Release – April 22, 2015:   “As an artist who specializes in sports art, I am especially interested in the historical aspects of the sports heroes that I paint.  My work has progressed through many hours of practice and experimenting to find my personal style.  The finished portrait or landscape is my way of celebrating outstanding athletes.  I am honoured to have this exhibition of my work at the BC Sports Hall of Fame where athletes, and the people who celebrate these athletes such as myself,  gather and feel the accomplishment these incredible sports heroes share with us.”

The official presentation of this Asahi painting was Friday, August 15, 2014, at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium, Vancouver, B.C., Canada.  Kaye Kamanishi threw out the first pitch for the 1:05 Vancouver Canadians game.   Wes Fung, who was instrumental in organizing the painting’s commission and installation at the Nat said:   “After a road-trip lasting over 70 years it’s time to bring home those Asahi boys of long ago summers, back to the Nat, our Field of Dreams.  Throwing out the first pitch is the last surviving member of those great Asahi teams, the indomitable Mr. Kaye Kamanishi.”  Below is a photo of Mr. Kaye Kamanishi and his family at the Nat just before he threw out the first pitch.

Prints for sale include the following sizes:   20″ x 16″ x 1.375″ (edge width), $16020″ x 16″ x .75″ (edge width), $15011″ x 7.2″ x 1.375″ (edge width), $11011″ x 7.2″ x .75″ (edge width), $100.   For more information about this presentation or to order Giclee prints of the Asahi painting, please contact me at 604-209-6074 and/or art@ettinger.ca.
