"Goose Blind" is the 2nd print in a series of 3 silkscreen prints combining the poetry of American poet Dave Smith with the art of strawberryluna, in conjunction the gallery show Poetic. Aesthetic.: An Exploration of Creativity in Poetry and Visual Art curated by John Shipman & The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland.

Poetic. Aesthetic. explores the relationship between the lyricism of poetry and the aesthetic force of the visual. By probing this relationship, Poetic. Aesthetic. also seeks to foster creative collaboration across artistic disciplines. Working with the University of Maryland Creative Writing faculty, The Art Gallery has partnered Maryland poets with national and international artists to collaborate on visual works for Poetic Aesthetic. Each visual artist will create three new works of art based on, and incorporating, the poems of one poet. Poetic. Aesthetic. exhibits works in various media, including paintings, sculptures, videos, drawings, screen-printed posters, and installations.

The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland presents the exhibition Poetic Aesthetic: An Exploration of Creativity in Poetry and Visual Art. The exhibition opens on January 27, 2011 with an Opening Reception from 5:00 -7:00 pm, and will be on exhibit through March 5, 2011. The multimedia exhibition brings together visual art with contemporary poetry in original, interdisciplinary works. Text from poets Elizabeth Arnold, R. Dwayne Betts, Lucille Clifton, Michael Collier, Jehanne Dubrow, Michael Glaser, Joseph Harrison, Ethan Huang, Linda Pastan, Stanley Plumly, Dave Smith, Saul Sosnowski, Elizabeth Spires, and Joshua Weiner will be featured in works from artists Kris Chau, Audra Buck-Coleman, Bill Dunlap, John Foster, Tim Gough, Dan Grzeca, Hero Design, David Hughes, Mirta Kupferminc, Ruth Lozner, Jefferson Pinder, Strawberryluna, Julianna Swaney, and James Thorpe.

This visual interpretation of Dave Smith's poem 'Goose Blind' is my 3-color, hand screenprinted silkscreen print with in metallic silver, black & scarlet red water based silkscreen inks. Each print is hand signed & numbered in a limited edition only of 75. Size: 16 x 20 inches (40.6 cm x 50.8 cm.) Paper: archival Cougar, White 100lb cover weight.

I design & hand screenprint my prints and posters. If you have any questions, just let me know! Unless otherwise requested, all orders are shipped within 5 business days, though usually much sooner. I like stupid little toys, hopefully you do too because there will be one or two in your tube.

We love wholesale! Just about everything in our Retail shop is available to wholesale buyers. If you don't see something in our Linesheet below on Etsy Wholesale, feel free to ask. Thank you!

We ship any time, any where, any way :) If you order is a gift, I'm happy to include gift notes too if your purchase is to be shipped directly to a gift recipient.

* I generally ship ASAP: within 1-3 business days of your order, though usually much sooner, and of course excluding weekends or postal holidays, or when we are away at a show. (I always let you know when there will be an unusual delay.) I do my best to get your orders out as quickly as I can for you.
I ship in sturdy shipping tubes so that your prints arrive safely and in mint condition, with delivery confirmation included for domestic US orders. If your order is for 10 or prints or posters, however, then I do ship flat and well protected.
Don't forget to double check your listed mailing address. If your address in your Etsy OR your PayPal profile is incorrect, please let me know ASAP and I will make sure that your order is shipped to your best & most recent address. If your PayPal and Etsy address do not match, I will ship your purchases to your ETSY invoice address as the default, provided at the time of purchase, unless you let me know otherwise. I totally just want you to get your stuff! ;-)
* Unless otherwise requested, I ship via USPS 1st Class (Priority upon request), typically and at least on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

* I will send you an email with your Tracking Number when I've shipped your order.

* Upon request, I am always happy to do expedited shipping w/in the US via FedEx or USPS for little more cost in shipping charges. Though larger orders may be a bit more, the general price quotes are:

1) We love our international customers around the globe! I gladly ship anywhere in the world.

2) International orders are shipped via First Class International (USPS) which at this time, offers moderate-level tracking. Although it is usually very reliable, I cannot be held responsible for packages that are lost once they leave the US or are stuck in Customs before delivery. However if you would like an upgrade to Priority or Global International please feel free to inquire about the costs. I will only charge for the actual postage, but be aware that the USPS pricing for my shipping tubes via Priority starts at $28 US.
If you are interested in a quantity of more than one of any of the items in my shop, or a bulk order (5 or more prints or posters, subject to a 10% or higher discount) please just let me know and I can create a custom listing for you.
