John Paul Caponigro, artist, author, educator, digital pioneer, presents a stunning collection of never-before-seen images in his annual open studio exhibit. You are cordially invited to tour John Paul's state-of-the-art studio and experience this spectacular new work - view prints and portfolios, hear the artist speak, and more. You can be among the first to see it during this extremely popular event, open for one weekend only - August 1-2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The artist will discuss his work daily at 2 p.m., sign books at 3 p.m., and post content online at 6 p.m. at johnpaulcaponigro.com. Introductory prices are available for a limited time only on a first-come-first serve basis.
This summer's event presents new work from Antarctica. (Visitors will also be able to see the artist's previous work in Antarctica by request.) In January, the artist made a third voyage to Antarctica, sailing past the Antarctic Circle and into some of the most remote regions of the world. He was lucky enough to see passages that very few people have ever seen. The images he made there are stunningly beautiful. And, so are his prints; Caponigro is a world-reknowned master of digital printing.
While the exotic region of Antarctica seems impossibly remote, it has a tremendous global environmental significance to us all; it's an essential climate regulator. You can learn more about the region at the exhibit, on johnpaulcaponigro.com, and in his newly revised and expanded book Antarctica. Signed copies of the his newly expanded and revised book Antarctica will be available for the first time ever.
