Greetings from Sanquhar, Pack 1
by Ric Kasini Kadour
Greetings from Sanquhar is two packs of eight 6.125"x4.3125" postcards of work from the "Sanquhar Series" by Ric Kasini Kadour. Each pack is $10 or buy both for $18.
The "Sanquhar Series" is a collection of collage prints Kadour made during his artist residency at MERZ Gallery in Sanquhar, Scotland during January and February 2020. "I find walking and photographing a great way to learn about a new place. I spent a lot of time walking when I was in Sanquhar and took a lot of pictures of the town," writes Kadour. "One night back at MERZ, I started collaging them with wallpaper in a fashion similar to the image of Brooklyn in the Domino piece."
The images in the series show various places in the town: Hotel pubs like the Nithsdale and the Glendyne, churches like Saint Brides and Saint Ninians. Sanquhar Station connects the village to Glasgow and Dumfries. The Sanquhar Post Office dates back to 1712 and is the oldest operating post office in the world. Street & Stove Pipes, High Street, and Butcher Shop show scenes of the town. MERZ Gallery and A' the Airtsare key locations in Sanquhar's cultural quarter. And Kadour includes landmarks like Old Town Hall, Tolbooth, and Wiggins Pub, where revered Scottish Poet Robert Burns stayed while visiting Sanquhar. Kadour writes, "At the end of the day, the series is a way of expressing my gratitude to the town and its people."
In addition to postcards, the series exists as limited edition, 10"x8" prints on 90 lb Fabriano cold press watercolor paper. SEE OTHER WORK IN THE "SANQUHAR SERIES"
