ALI Photographer, Joe Mozer, meets BMFAs Photography Department!

Sep 18, 2017

Our art department was recently invited to a one-of-a-kind day, sponsored by Hasselblad Bron!  We were invited to attend a studio tour and demonstration of Hasselblad camera systems and Broncolor lighting setups at The Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

We sent our imaging specialist, Joe, to Boston to enjoy this amazing opportunity. 

Led by John Woolf, Digital Systems Manager, BMFA and Hasselblad representatives, the tour consisted of two studios, one for 3D capture and the other for 2 dimensional objects. Much of the day was spent in the latter, reviewing works on paper, textiles and paintings; as well as, demonstrating the large motorized copy stand and large wall mounted easel for paintings.

The special invite from Hasselblad came after Art Licensing’s purchase of a new H6D-50c camera for our own studio. This extraordinary 50-megapixel camera is perfect for capturing high quality digital images of our artists’ original paintings and drawings, as well as fantastic product shots featuring their work applied to the myriad of products we provide licensing for!

“The BMFA tour was awesome,” says Joe. “I was impressed with the level of accomplishment and big name schools and museums that most of the other tour members were from. I felt a little out of my league at first, but quickly came to realize that we are doing the same things and encountering the same challenges.”

 

“After lunch, we got to see some of the Photography Department’s work on ancient small objects – things like coins and gems; How to capture fine detail when a sculpture is on the facet of a ring! It was fascinating to be able to see their problems and solutions to a variety of photographic situations. All in all, it was a great time and I felt honored to be able to get a glimpse of how things work behind the scenes at such a prestigious center of art and culture.”

Special thanks to BMFA and Hasselblad for the invitation to such an inspiring event!

2017 Atlanta Gift Show

Jan 23, 2017

            Russ and Syrena recently traveled to the Atlanta Gift Show at AmericasMart in Atlanta, GA.  

They left ALI Headquarters very, very early (3:20am) to go to the airport. It was a crisp winter morning (-4 degrees) with a beautiful full moon! 

  Once they arrived at the airport, they quickly checked their bags, hopped through security, and got on the plane. 

A few short hours later, they arrived in Atlanta! They hopped off the plane and headed straight to the show where they walked their first day collecting leads, looking for artist products and of course gathering trends.

It was a long first day between traveling and walking the show and ending the day with an "e-mail party" in Russ's hotel room (not as much of a party as one might think, but more of a replying frenzy)!

            The next day Russ and Syrena met with clients back-to-back all day.  They even had the opportunity to meet with a few of our artists (during their lunch break- multitasking is something ALI is known for).  The team had a lot of beautiful new art to show during their meetings, so the clients were ecstatic! They saw a TON of products with art from our artists. It seemed like everytime they would turn a corner, they would spot another product contracted by Art Licensing. 

(These are a few of the products spotted at the show)

 

While walking all over for meetings it was overwhelming how much gold was seen throughout the showrooms.  Gold accents are one of the many hot trends identified by Russ and Syrena at the show; the hallways practically glittered!  Another thing they noticed dominating the show was natural textures (i.e. wood, cork, pallets, birch bark, burlap, rocks, etc.).

            After a few more busy days at the Atlanta Gift Show, Russ and Syrena hopped back on a plane and made their trek back home to Vermont. 

The two had a great time in Atlanta and deemed the show a big success.

Dean Russo on the cleats of New England Patriots player!

Dec 05, 2016

We are so excited for our artist, Dean Russo. The one thing in the entire world he loves more than creating his colorful deigns is: dogs. This week he got to share his love for rescue dogs with the world as his art was featured on the cleats of NFL star, Logan Ryan.

The New England Patriots player approached Dean about doing a design for charity. Dean has always had a soft spot in his heart for all animals so once Dean heard the cleats would be auctioned off for rescued dogs he whipped his paint right out and began creating. Dean says: “Pit bulls are a misunderstood breed, and I’m just happy to be able to get the message about animal rescue out there.

Sunday (December 4) during week 13 of the NFL season players all from many teams wore custom cleats that reflect their commitment to the charitable cause of their choice. More than 500 players participated in the league’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign. This initiative is a culmination of 18 months of collaborative work between the NFL and players across the league.

Many players shared their custom cleats on social media platforms with the hash tag #mycausemycleats. Every cleat tells a story. Logan’s story is all about rescuing pitbulls. The proceeds of his cleats will go to The Pittie Stop Rescue, Inc. which is a nonprofit, all foster home-based, rescue. Their goal is not only to find the best home for the dogs in their care, but also the best fit for potential adopters. Their hope is to create and expand a support system for each other- for their volunteers, fosters, adopters and the rescue community

After the game, the cleats will be auctioned off and 100% of proceeds will go to the charity!
