We have friends and know of local bookstores who continue to keep the flames of paper-in-hand burning. (no puns intended).
Phineas Graphics is one of those businesses in Portsmouth.
Nothing makes us happier than to touch the surface of the medium used to show art. Yes, digital is awesome, but really, can you do without the texture of a paper page, a cozy corner with a favorite read, or a collection of images of which you can turn the pages back and forth?!

The coolest thing about them is they put . this . tiny .little. publication. together. for. the. artists. Drink it in, folks.
If you are an artist, stop asking yourself if paper is passe.
You know ...... you paint on paper, you paint on canvas, you make pottery, you sculpt, you carve, you burn, you touch.... all because you are an artist. Why shouldn't you have a love affair with a textural "thing" that shows your textural work?
Imagine this lead-in to a conversation.... "I am an artist. Here is a sample of what I do ..... and the community I am surrounded by".
Below is the sneak peek of our page in the next "The Art Guide 2020, to South Coast Maine and Seacoast NH." Look for it around the beginning of May. Thank you Phineas Graphics for keeping us connected.
