Community Response Requested - Which Forcade Photograph Should Be Donated?
Tim Forcade has enjoyed bringing beauty, serenity, and joy into the hearts of individuals and business owners for several decades. Now he is allowing the community to have an opportunity to decide which of his photographs should be donated at the yearly Dinner and Dancing at Dusk event benefiting the local Lawrence Community Shelter.
This year's event, which will be hosted by Bill and Cindy Self and has a Middle Eastern theme complete with belly dancers, will be held at Alvamar on April 24th from six to ten p.m.
Forcade is allowing members of the community to place a vote to decide the final choice of which photograph of five he will donate. And it isn't going to be an easy choice.
Framed size of the print will be about 45" x 60" with a normal cost of $900. That's a local Lawrence price since the same picture would sell for twice that amount at Forcade's Seattle gallery. Throw in framing at a cost of another $350-$400, depending on which print and frame Forcade chooses to go with the photograph, and all of a sudden you're looking at a work of art worth at least twelve to thirteen hundred dollars.
As Forcade states it, "This will be a limited edition archival pigment print (edition of 21) which will be framed using acid free archival materials and conservation UV glass."
Forcade's prints are available in sizes ranging from 8" x 10" to 40" x 56" and up as limited edition prints on paper - larger prints are available using a variety of materials, framing and presentation methods.

Because of the time constraint involved in framing the community's selection, the deadline for voting will be April 5th at midnight. One vote per person, please. Here is a look at the five photographs.
Now pick the photograph you like best and vote for it. Free free to leave a comment on why you chose the photograph you did.
Now if we could only decide who's house it should hang in!
