While people in the northern hemisphere are celebrating the summer, we offer up our thanks to a
favorite destination during the season by visiting the beach. Sun, surf, and sand continue to be the well-known staples of a Floridian summer experience. Therefore, we would like to introduce the Summer Seabird Collection. This new collection of seabirds from the sunny coast of Florida reminds us of those special days of warm sunny mornings searching for seashells and suntans.
The first addition to the collection was the premier work Two Pelicans is a principal component of our new
collection. These two pelicans will swim confidently together from a local mangrove inlet into your personal collection. Wildlife is found year round in the tropics but our new collection allows you to experience and share those special moments anytime and anywhere.
In another work, an American Oystercatcher looks on with steady bright-eyed intent. He is a captivating flash of color in a sea of black and white texture. This work was very difficult to accomplish, as these seabirds had little to no tolerance for any human getting a good shot of them. Further, they insisted on nesting among the seaweeds blending into the foreground and thus making a strange and uniquely textured shot.
Even the Royal Terns nap gracefully on the beach
knowing the beach is the place to be, well after a visit to our gallery of course!

In other news this month, we’d like to introduce a new development in the history of the gallery. A&A Photographic Arts has entered an outlet vendor deal with a special art dealer. Fotos by Fritz of the Tampa Bay Area will now display and sell a specifically curated selection of photographic artworks. This kind of outlet market is perfect for our growing gallery. We now offer one of a kind artist proofs, cards, reprints, and smaller prints to a whole new group of art lovers.
