Hersteading Gift Cards (set of 5)One of the most common comments I hear about my Hersteading: Cold Antler Farm series is:

Is that a REAL HAWK? 

followed by,

I need that photo!   

Well folks, here’s your chance. Jenna (Cold Antler Farm) and I have joined forces again this Solstice to create a new set of 5×7″ gift cards. It’s a limited edition, and last year’s sold out fairly quickly, so go ahead and peruse your options in my new STORE.

If you are looking for framed prints or want to see your options in person, head on over to LARAC, where I’m part of the Holiday Shop through Dec 24th (love how they take us procrastinators into account! Evening hours on Dec 22 too). I have work there ranging from $5 (cards) to $200 for larger framed photos.

For matted prints, check out the Gift Shop at Saratoga Arts, also carrying my work – AND, the framed prints on view at Saratoga Springs Public Library are also available for purchase through them until December 31st. Oh, and I’m not done yet! The exhibition Sul do Brasil at Berimbau in NYC was extended until the end of January (and yes, you can have one of those too).

Happy holidays to all!

PS – and speaking of Holidays, Jenna is also featured in the Holiday issue of Simply Saratoga, along with some of my photos (p68-71)

With Brazilian Independence Day around the corner (Sept 7 but in NYC we’re celebrating on Sept 4), it is a great time to share my exhibition at Berimbau again, along with the photos from the first opening reception on July 26 – thanks to the amazing photographer and friend, Fernando Navarro. I’m grinning like a fool in most of them; could not be helped… I was surrounded by family and friends and loving every second of the gathering.

I’d like to have another reception or two before the show closes (happy-hour get togethers), so be sure to follow my photo page on Facebook for the latest announcements (@miriamromaisphotos).

About the series:
Sul do Brasil is a personal journey through southern Brazil, where my family still lives. Even though I lived there as a kid, the series is still a process of discovery for me and a somewhat nostalgic one at that. The images show the southern countryside of Brazil as I criss-crossed my way to visit relatives, bringing up long forgotten memories and making new ones.

Berimbau do Brasil is worth the trip (brazilian food, caipirinhas & art!); it’s located at 43 Carmine Street (bwtween Bedford & Bleeker). Tel: (212) 242-2606
