20th Century Cincinnati Show

Hello friends.

We are busy at the studio preparing for the 20th Century Cincinnati show later this week. This year we are focusing on vintage Ford Times prints, many of which are new acquisitions and bear Charley's signature, Originals by both Charley and Edie, newly released lithographs and protective skins for your mobile devices. We'll be sure to take lots of pictures for our friends far away. Please check back to see pictures of the booth and if you have questions about a particular print, don't hesitate to contact us.

We are also excited to have been featured in this months edition of House Trends Magazine with a rare glimpse into Charley and Edie's 1958 mid-century modern home and art studio. I hope you get a sense of the magic that the "lady bug" house embodies. It truly is a wonderful place. You can view a digital edition here or of course grab a copy at newsstands around town.

It's been awhile and we apologize for that. The studio went through several changes in 2010 but we are moving forward and happy to announce many new things coming out of the studio in 2011.

Seven new Charley Harper wall images were released in 2010!

  • Amorously Airborne lithograph print

  • A Place to Call Home (Robin) lithograph print

  • Birducopia lithograph print

  • Fossils lithograph print

  • Squid & Whale lithograph poster

  • Loonrise giclee wall mural

  • Upside Downside giclee wall mural

  • and coming soon: Momatee lithograph print

We partnered with Night and Day Studio and created the first ever Charley Harper App for kids! It has been greeted with much success and is on itunes top 10 educational apps for kids. (check it out!)

We also partnered with Gelaskins and created Harper skins for portable devices. (check it out!)

Charley's work has been exhibited all over the world this past year. If you haven't had the opportunity to see one of the exhibitions yet, here are a couple of our upcoming/ongoing events:

Hope that gives you an idea of all the wonderful things the studio has been up to over the past 8 months. We enjoy hearing from you and plan to keep you more up to date with our ever evolving, never boring studio life.

All the best, and of course we wish you and your loved ones a Happy Vowlentine's Day!

Atomic Ranch Magazine just paid a visit to Cincinnati, thanks to Susan and Arlen of Read how it all went down and how their love of Charley Harper and the Charley Harper Art Studio's small feature in Atomic Ranch's Winter Issue sparked it all.

Susan and Arlen specialize in marketing and selling modern, contemporary and architecturally significant homes. Their main objective is to market these homes to that segment of the population who see the value in the architecture. Susan has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, Dwell Magazine, Modernism Magazine, Cincinnati Magazine and the Cincinnati Enquirer. She has also appeared on HGTV Pro and HGTV's 'What You Get For the Money.' In 2008 she co-authored the book '50 from the 50's: Midcentury Architecture and Interiors in Cincinnati.' Arlen has 15 years of experience in the mortgage industry, 25 years sales experience, and is an experienced remodeler of midcentury homes.

They were cool to spread the word about the F Holes, who are a local Cincinnati musical group. Apparently, Tim, of the F Holes wrote a song about Charley called "Charley's Cardinal". Tres cool! We would like to hear this!

And for those visiting or even living in Cincinnati, check Space513, a fantastic interactive website of places and things to see and do in the Queen City. Kudos to the folks behind such a great design and interactivity.
