‘CASH FOR CLUNKERS’ BASEBALL ART PROGRAM -
ACCLAIMED GALLERY PROVIDES REBATES ON INVENTORY FOR TRADE INS

October 2009 – The acclaimed Marquess Gallery, featuring the photographic art of Don Marquess, has instituted its own “cash for clunkers” program, under which people turning in old clunker art (at least 11”x14”), will be rewarded with a one-third discount on any art sold through the gallery’s St. Louis location or through its website. 

“As art is in the eye of the beholder, we are not creating any strict criteria to determine what qualifies as ‘art,’” notes Marquess.  “We will be totally lenient in this program.  So long as it is at least 11”x14”, it can be a poster, a print, a photograph or finished artwork.  And for those troubled by big government’s hand in the original cash-for-clunkers program {benefiting the auto industry}, you can be sure that this is an independent program with no "red tape,” administered by our own hard-working staff.”

Don Marquess specializes in baseball still life – his creative placements of baseball objects, notably the ball itself, have won him acclaim both in photographic and sports circles.  He shoots his photographs in natural light without a tripod, producing remarkably sharp and intensely colorful images.

Nearly 50 different images are available through Marquess Gallery, ranging in price from $45 posters to $1800 Cibachrome original signed photographs.  Marquess photographic art hangs in many professional baseball offices as well as in the private collections of major league players, who stop by the Union Station gallery in St. Louis or purchase from the website.

The offer, which runs through December 31, 2009, requires the customer to send in their artwork (USPS, FedEx or UPS), along with a major credit card number and expiration date and their choice of a “replacement” work of art.  The new art will be sent free of charge via UPS.  Art should be sent to Marquess Gallery, 206 Union Station, St. Louis, MO 63103.

“We do have some tongue in cheek humor in adopting the cash-for-clunkers slogan,” notes Marquess.  “But these are tough times in America; the purchase of art is a discretionary purchase, and this incentive is intended to help make the purchase easier for baseball fans.”
