Maryland Gallery Opens: “ Baseball Fine Art Photography: An Exhibit by Don Marquess”

Clayton gallery offers exceptional value to baseball fans and art collectors

St. Louis (May 18, 2010) -- Maryland Gallery will host a showing of photographic images by premier fine art baseball photographer Don Marquess. The Marquess show features many images of the baseball, taking the subject of our national pastime and capturing it in all of its glory.

“Don’s work combines his tremendous love for the game with so much creativity that it appeals to fans of all ages. Don shares how he sees the game with all of us. His prints make a person stop, look and enjoy,” says Cardinal play-by-play announcer John Rooney.

Known for his use of intense color, remarkable sharpness and inventive composition, Marquess has sold more than a quarter of a million photographs to date. His work has been featured in the BJC SportsWorks exhibit at the St. Louis Science Center and at the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame, and his photographs grace the offices of many Major League and Minor League teams throughout the country.

“I view the baseball itself as an art object,” Marquess explains. “I try to infuse a personality into the baseballs and really capture the spirit of the game.”

This spirit is evident in such photographs as “Old Glory,” which combines two iconic images: baseball and the American flag. The gallery will sell framed, lithographic prints of many of Marquess’ images for $165; these are ideal for Father’s Day and graduation gift-giving, and for office or entertainment room décor. In addition, framed limited-edition photographic prints will be available through the show. A portion of the proceeds from the exhibit’s opening reception will benefit Cardinals Care.
