This winter we purchased a 40″ archival printer from Digital Arts Aspen and it’s been sitting for way too long. This past week we finally fired her up and printed 4 canvas prints as part of a Battery621 event celebrating Chris Davenport’s Everest Summit and successful ski of the Lhoste Face. 2 Photos are from Davenport’s camera on Everest and 2 are from Mike Arzt and Ian Fohrman of Davenport in Portillo Chile.
We built the internal frames out of poplar wood in our shop and headed over to the Like Minded Productions home studio finishing work to learn how to stretch and wrap the canvas. These guys are super pro and I would recommend them any day for your art production needs.
We auctioned off the prints at the party with all proceeds going to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center. It was Dav’s choice of charity and makes us all feel like we are racking up a bit of backcountry karma by cutting the check. It’s a service we use on an almost daily basis during the winter and it feels good to give back.
We’re also beyond excited to have the new art making capability in house!
