Art Show Preview: Ed Preusser
Not long after Little Chapel on the River was published, Ed Preusser crafted some signs to show newly curious (and lost) patrons how to find Guinan's. He did such a good job, someone stole the signs once or twice and they were often photographed by people making a journey to Guinan's.
Now he's making a more elaborate, special version to sell at the upcoming Guinan's Art & Photography show.
WHY ED CHOSE THIS WORK:
"I did the shamrock sign because the original neon one in the window was always a feature everyone remembers from their visits (in addition to the one made of brass in the fireplace hearth). This one, unlike the wooden signs, is a true hand made, one of a kind."
