Isn't that the best gallery name ever? Buy Some Damn Art is the online gallery of Kate Singleton, also known for her blog Arthound. Kate launches a new show every week or so, and the work is up for six weeks. She has some amazing pieces right now, ranging from Erin Endicott's embroidered work:

and, opening tomorrow, a special edition of six photos from the Beachcombing series! I'm nervous and excited about finding myself in such creative company.
Here's the skinny on the show: there will be 6 photos, giclee printed at 20"x20" with Epson Ultrachrome archival inks on 100% cotton rag Somerset Velvet paper. This is the most beautiful paper - it's a thick, bright white cotton rag that's been really popular with printmakers, especially for etching. It's become equally popular for photographs - the surface is so velvety soft that it gives really rich detail and color. It's fairly expensive, as you might expect, so I don't use it often and don't offer it in my shop, but I just love the way photos feel on this stuff. Art geek moment!
