UNIQUE BASEBALL THEMED UMBRELLA
St. Louis, April 1, 2006 --- It's the perfect gift to get a baseball fan through the rain delays of life!
From the celebrated Marquess Gallery of St. Louis comes an artistic, large size red, white and blue umbrella captured by the photography of Don Marquess - specifically, a collection of 208 neatly arranged baseballs to hold back the storms, supported by a sturdy umbrella mechanism of the highest quality. The umbrella - some might call it foldable art - sells for $29.00.
Don Marquess has developed a photo style in which elements of the game of baseball - bats, bases, gloves, and primarily the baseballs themselves - are captured in a still life form in the highest grade photographic process. Marquess shoots with 50 ASA film in natural light, without a tripod, producing prints that approximate 95 megapixels in quality - about six times greater than a digital camera produces.
He operates the popular Marquess Gallery in Union Station, St. Louis, a frequent stop for visiting teams and Cardinal players who stay in downtown hotels. A number of Marquess works will be hung in the new Busch Stadium, and a national gallery tour of the work will begin later this year.
The umbrella can be purchased from this site, or by visiting Marquess Gallery located at 127 Union Station, St. Louis, Missouri., (314) 997-7773. It is open to the public during normal mall hours. Or order toll free at 877 997-7773. Don Marquess is available for interview upon request.
