November 19, 2008

Fine art studio and publisher, Fidelis Art Prints is pleased to announce the signing of Oliver resident and photo-based artist Merle Somerville. “Festival of the Grape” favourite in both 2007 and 2008, Merle’s work was honored as a “People’s Choice ’07″ and by his peers and the “People” again in 2008. Fidelis will be adding six of his artworks to its 2008/09 release which will join eighteen other new works by artists such as Alex Fong, Robyn Lake and Lauren Schnarr.

Merle’s unique “aged-sepia” technique offers a new artistic approach to the colours of the local landscape. His still life images are a reminder of the agricultural significance of the Okanagan and how fortunate we are to be living in such a bountiful region of this country. All Vineyard Collection artworks are printed using the giclée process and the finest in archival materials. Each artwork offers offers a wind range of product choice from affordable paper editions to truly collectable limited editions on canvas.
