Photography and Website Build for Bolivar Street Gallery in Sanger, Texas

The value of a good solid website

Bolivar Street Gallery website by Shannon Drawe Photography

I always appreciate a client who knows the value of good (website) design –, and also realizes the value good photography plays in the overall look of their website. Here are some images of art available at the Bolivar Street Gallery in Sanger, Texas.

I made these off the cuff – natural light, while doing the website orientation for the gallery owner at the same time. Studio quality copy work of artwork, looks and feels quite a bit different than this, but it works to show what the gallery is all about.

RA Miller Folk Artist

RA Miller folk artist photograph

I have been passively looking for an image I made of RA Miller, a Georgia folk artist, around about 2002 or 2003. It was the “good old days” of square shooting Hasselblad, and darkroom printing. If you are unfamiliar with either, well then you youngsters may have just missed an important ingredient in your ed-u-cation.

Mr. Miller is long gone, but you can see his work in all kinds of places. There was a treasure trove of his work at a place in Dallas (Lakewood), Texas, called Curiosities. Count yourself lucky if you have some of his folk art.

Back and Forth

In House stock photo shoot for Mosaic Design

Headed back to Mosaic this morning for more new shots for their website updates. Then, it’s a scouting mission at Texas Woman’s University for a couple of shoots coming this week.

Glad the Richard Davis Sculpture site is flying along, and that show is off the ground at the Main Street Gallery in Saint Jo, Texas. It is a great feeling to create websites like the one I did for Richard Davis, and have it all go so well, and bring him to the top of all searches for his work. Time to go fishing with Richard now that that’s done! You can see I have added a page for websites I have created on this site – Website Creation is that page.

It’s hard to go wrong with the wordpress underpinnings, and I create sites that are simple, highly visible and of course – capable of being turned over to the client for their own best use.

Richard Davis Video – 2

In the Studio with Richard Davis Sculpture

Whether or not it ranks high, it’s a very accurate representation of what Richard Davis does when he’s thinking and creating. The sculptures are already much further along, and when I talked to him this morning the clear coats were drying.

The videos are in support of the web site I created for him at

There’s going to be some images – stills – from his studio before the pieces leave for the gallery. Meanwhile, TWU’s Pioneer basketball team is headed for the tournament today, and I’ll be there for the sendoff.

Richard Davis Video

DSLR Video for Richard Davis Sculpture

The balancing act between video and still photography teeters from time-to-time. Here is a rough video for a well known local artist Richard Davis. He invited me into his studio, on Lake Kiowa, Texas, to watch his creative process, and talk about how he works. This is the first of two parts leading up to his opening at a gallery in Saint Jo, Texas, this month.
