American Art Collector

Hill with Red Sky
12.5" x 9.5"
Original Pastel
Casey Klahn

Today, I received word that my artwork, Hill with Red Sky will be published in the next American Art Collector, Alcove Books. The book is sent to museums, galleries and other venues, but other limited distribution is provided through Baker & Taylor. I have a number of copies myself, and could be talked into selling you one, but numbers are very few, sorry.

I have enjoyed having my artwork published in the West Coast edition for the past three years running, and vouch for the very high quality of this eclectic showcase of art of various media. The next issue will be a nation wide version, rather than regional.


Note: I am reviewing the options available to me for self-publishing a book featuring my
Colorist American Landscapes. My goal is to make books available to my patrons only, and to keep the distribution small. Because I don't produce prints of my work, I am exploring the book medium as an alternative way of providing access to my art for more patrons. Any ideas or experiences with self publishing out there?

Thanks, Tracy.
For some reason I feel the permanence in a book.

Yes! Congratulations, Casey! I'd be over the moon. Having worked in tv most of my adult life, I am still in awe of the permanence of print.
