JUNE 2011

Blanco Lavender Festival
The lavender fields and farms clustered in the Blanco area have suffered mightily from the nearly nine months of extreme drought, but you wouldn't have known it had you visited Bill Brockmeier's photographic exhibit early in June. Bill's photographs of private lavender farms in the area (taken last year just after an exceedingly rainy spring) showed fields of the fragrant blooms so lush, you'd swear you could smell them!

The festival drew thousands of patrons from across Texas, and beyond, who partook of the many lavender-based products offered by dozens of vendors. Bill exhibited his own award-winning photographs in a fine art show associated with the Festival.

Frequent comments from the appreciative art collectors and patrons who visited his booth were— "These are gorgeous!," "...simply wonderful!," "...incredible light and shadows!," "Have these been artificially enhanced?" The honest answer to this last question was: "As beautiful as these images are, NO, they have NOT been enhanced by artificially increasing the color saturation or other similar's simply the natural and beautiful colors of the fields."

New items available
At the Lavender Festival, Bill also began offering for the first time, very high quality fine-art notecards. These cards are printed by Bill using the same cutting-edge processes and award-winning panoramic images he uses for his much larger framed works. The cards are available in sets of four or twelve, and include high quality envelopes sized for the cards. So far, the sets available include a Lavender Series, a San Antonio Missions Series, and a B&W River Sculptures Series. Check here for more details.

Another item that Bill premiered at the Lavender Festival was an offering of his "Extraordinary Perspectives" panoramic images book. At many past shows and exhibits, Bill had this book on hand as simply a portfolio of the wide spectrum of work that he has done over the years. So many people had asked if the book was for sale (it wasn't at the time) that Bill has had a printing run done, and it is now available as both an open edition, and a limited signed edition. Details here...

Bill's photographs appearing in his "Blanco Lavender" exhibit, and now available as archival matte prints, limited edition large canvases, and fine art note cards, are seen on this page.
