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.

Two ways to see my work on the Coast

This fall, I will be taking part in the Sunshine Coast Art Crawl on October 17, 18 and 19, 2014.  There will be Friday opening and events and my studio hours will be Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

I am also pleased to announce that I will be part of the Purple Banner project hosted by the Coast Cultural Alliance. Having a Purple Banner on the end of my driveway means that I welcome people dropping in – having said that, to avoid disappointment when I may just be at the store, please contact me at 604-209-6074 and we will set up an appointment for you to tour my studio and art gallery at 990 Chaster Road, Gibsons, B.C., Canada.
