“Icons” First Friday

Sometimes, you just get lucky.  A while back, I made arrangements to gft an “Icons of Alaska” print to the Anchorage Convention and Visitors Bureau during the March member luncheon.  Actually, I am going to give them this very “Moose” print because I photographed it within the Anchorage bowl, up in the Powerline Pass area in Chugach State Park, and it fits nicely with the “Big Wild Life” theme.  Then, a couple of things happened.

First, the ACVB called me and said their March artist had to back out of his planned show and could I fill in at the Log Cabin and Visitor Center downtown.  Well, gee, let me think of that … I have a whole new print and note card series I am trying to promote and they need an artist to fill in during the month with the one day in the whole year where downtown Anchorage probably gets the most visitors – the ceremonial start of the Iditarod.  So, of course, I said “yes” and decided my show would be the “Icons.”

Then, the ACVB told me that they had to move the March member meeting to the 18th because they were going to have a mayoral candidate forum and they needed to move to accomodate some candidates.  No problem there, either.  Having the mayoral forum will certainly ensure that a LOT of people will be at the luncheon and, even though I will only be in the spotlight for about 2-3 minutes, it will be one heck of a way to let other businesses, one of my target markets for the “Icons,” to know about the product.

So, if you are going to be downtown this evening, drop on by to the ACVB Log Cabin and Visitor Center on the corner of 4th Avenue and F Street from 5-7 p.m.  You will have the chance to see the entire “Icons” series in public for the first time.  I will have box sets of the note cards available for sale and, of course, you can purchase the framed prints on display, too.
