Archive for December, 2012

This has been quite a December! Steam at Harper’s Ferry is winding down from a very eventful month. But, we’ll be winding back up again next week to announce a Call to Artists for our next exhibit opening, the springtime Art Walk, the next Shameless Steam event, and some exiting new work that will be shown at the gallery in the coming months.

An especial thanks to Jonah Knight and The Steampunk Family (and friends!) who made Steam’s participation in Harpers Ferry’s Olde Tyme Christmas extra memorable.

Oh, yeah.

We’ve got quite a mantle display!

Jason Edwards finished our Xmas cards last week using the in-house letterpress. There are a limited number of handpainted cards as well as letterpress on metallic paper cards. The image is taken from the 1888 Christmas edition wrapper for Harper’s Bazar.

In the background is our Steampunk Cabinet of Curiousities Advent Calendar.

Local ceramic artist and engineer, Phil Berneburg of Three Rivers Pottery, just dropped off these adorable espresso cups today.

They are all one of a kind with an cinnamon red octopus medallion on a nutmeg colored base.  The tentacle handles are in an iridescent gray.

Winter Themes and Best of Steam – through January 27, 2013!

As Steam posted earlier, our artist line-up is set for the season! Pith Helmet Provisions is now in the house, along with Christopher Loggie, Kasey Hendricks, Josh Aterovis, Mark Schumaker and Jason Edwards. We have re-installed our most popular 3D images with a new one featuring a view of Harper’s Ferry from Jefferson’s Rock.

Steam at Harper’s Ferry is now in full production of its own signature stylings of prints, solid brass keychains, and hand-colored Harper’s Ferry postcards.

Olde Tyme Christmas

Celebrating its 42nd year, Olde Tyme Christmas in Harper’s Ferry will be held the first two weekends of December.

Steam at Harper’s Ferry scheduled two events for Olde Tyme Christmas. The first was Jonah Knight’s live acoustic guitar performance on November 30,  and the second will be a Steampunk Stroll, on December 9.

Jonah Knight performed at Steam at Harper’s Ferry again on opening day, Friday, November 30. He had some competition from all the festivities in the Park, but his audience was compensated with the adventures of the Yuletide Lads. Creepy stuff, indeed. Jonah was kind enough to leave a few copies of his CD “Another Creepy Christmas” to sell at the Gallery. It will be on our playlist for the foreseeable future…

The Steampunk Family and Steam at Harper’s Ferry organized a “Steampunk Stroll” scheduled for December 9 at 2 pm. Why a Steampunk Stroll? The Steampunk Family offers the following explanation:

What purpose a Promenade? Well, the usual purpose of meeting fascinating steampunks and looking fabulous, of course, but in addition, we have the opportunity to bestow a few of our holiday shopping dollars on small, local businesses.

Please refer to their website for more information about the Steampunk Stroll.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!
