Share Article

When the art website ArtCreel.com launched in October 2009, it became a preferred site for anglers to find a large collection of limited edition fly fishing art. Originally featuring seven artists, the site has carefully expanded, now offering the work of 12 select artists. Two of these artists were added this fall - printmaker Steve Harmston, and painter Alberto Rey. Additionally, the site now offers original art, and is celebrating the holidays Nov. 23-29th with 15% off on fish prints.

Is it possible for the art in a 'Man Cave' to be endorsed by the woman of the house? ArtCreel.com is a site dedicated to fine limited edition fly fishing art prints, and hopes it can help answer that question. Over the past year, ArtCreel.com has carefully added angling art from some very talented fly fishing artists. Two were added just recently - printmaker Steve Harmston and painter Alberto Rey. Additionally, an original art section has been added to the site.

When Scott Hale, ArtCreel's founder, met Steve Harmston a few years ago at an art show, each took a liking to the other's work - so much so that they traded original pieces that same weekend. Scott says of Steve and his original serigraph prints, "He's a gifted printmaker. He distills out everything that's unnecessary visually, but at the same time he includes a level of detail that is extraordinary - when you consider the difficulty of his process. His original fish prints, which are done in relatively small editions, mirror the simplicity and eloquence of the sport."

Alberto Rey is a painter and art professor at State University New York Fredonia. He has opted to offer limited edition giclee prints - smaller versions of his often very large fish paintings, through ArtCreel. Alberto is a talented, busy man who's work is in over 20 museum collections and has been in Gray's Sporting Journal, Fish and Fly, American Angler and Saltwater Fisherman magazines. His unique interpretations of fish in their habitat spring from his travels and angling adventures around the world.

ArtCreel has also opened up a new section - Original Art - where original paintings and prints may be viewed and purchased. In addition to Alberto, Steve, and the originals, ArtCreel.com has brought on the angling art of Nick Meyer, Adriano Manocchia, and Jeff Kennedy over the past year. ArtCreel also carries work from Derek DeYoung, Al Barnes, AD Maddox, Peter Corbin, Joseph Tomelleri, Bob White and Scott Hale.

Having undergone some cosmetic improvements, ArtCreel.com is ever becoming a better place for angling enthusiasts to find the fly fishing art that speaks directly to their love of the sport. Anglers and the people who shop for them can now find over 200 limited edition prints on ArtCreel. It's a place to find 'Art for the Man Cave'... that a woman can approve of. The site makes it easy to sort by subject, artist, size or price range and also offers gift certificates.

To celebrate the holidays, http://www.ArtCreel.com is kicking off the season with 15% off on fish prints November 23rd through November 29th.
