Bergh Images Fine Art Photography – With Thanksgiving right around the corner, much to be thankful for this month besides the upcoming First Friday Art Walk (Nov. 4). Not sure why, but National Sardines Day coincides with Turkey Day (Nov. 24) – but maybe that helps explain why National Absurdity Day (Nov. 20) is just four days earlier? In any event, to help celebrate these glorious occasions, Bergh Images will have a month-long sale on custom-matted prints (20% off); custom-framed B&W prints (15% off); and any single metal, acrylic, or canvas print (10% off). Wine, small bites, and live music (courtesy of their neighbor Furnish Bainbridge) will be provided, along with the usual drawing for two complimentary 18×24 matted prints ($120 value). The special focus this month is “Fall Colors,” as owner/photographer Andy Bergh will be highlighting some of his stunning autumnal images. The gallery is located at 400 Winslow Way E, Suite 115.
