In Color Vintage Art Store Now Open

The In Color Vintage Art Store is now open for business.

Over the years, In Color has been acquiring original vintage artwork and maps, spending dozens of hours restoring and reviving them into fine art. The resulting artwork is now available for sale on In Color's new website, vintageart.store. In many cases, the restoration process has resulted in the creation of derivative pieces, which have subsequently been copyrighted as such. The images have come alive and taken on a new look befitting of accolades from the original artists.

Maps, historical photographs and the like are now available for sale. Although the store opens with only a handful of images, we are currently adding a new pieced daily. By year's end, the store will have a substantial offering. Furthermore, In Color will shortly team up with another curator of historic charts and maps, adding that collection to the store as well.

Swing by today and give it a look: http://vintageart.store

Jack Johnson / SB Bowl Water Station Wrap

In Color has designed the wrap for the Santa Barbara Bowl's new water station, donated by Jack Johnson's organization. The backdrop image was taken by A. Arthur Fisher. See the full press release:

Jack Johnson Honors the Santa Barbara Bowl with the All At Once Sustainability Award

Water Refill Station Unveiled at Ribbon–Cutting Ceremony to Reduce Single–Use Plastic Waste at Concerts

Water Refill Stations will also be presented to the two other award winners, the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Maryland (IMP Presents), and the Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in New York (Live Nation).

Last December, the Santa Barbara Bowl with promoter Nederlander Concerts, received an inaugural All At Once Sustainability Award in the “Green Leader” category, for ongoing excellence in waste reduction and sustainability and for making every effort to meet Johnson’s Environmental Rider during his 2014 From Here To Now To You Tour. As a result of the award and water refill station, fans will now be able to refill reusable water bottles and cups from the venue, cutting back on plastic waste at the Santa Barbara Bowl shows.

The Bowl is being recognized as a leader in venue greening and for implementing best practices, piloting new initiatives, and setting the stage for others to follow. The Greening the Bowl campaign aims at making the venue as close to carbon neutral as possible by decreasing the Bowl’s ecological footprint. Recent greening initiatives include removal of non-native plants, a bike valet service, solar power, and implementation of waste-diversion recycling and composting programs.

Additionally, as part of Jack Johnson’s 2014 shows, the Santa Barbara Bowl in collaboration with LoaTree, launched the innovative #MyPintAndMe initiative to reduce single-use disposable plastics by selling customized pint cups. Bowl patrons can bring their pint cups to every Bowl show and receive drink discounts for the life of the cup. Since the inception of the program the SB Bowl has seen cost savings from the reduction in plastic cups purchased and waste hauling fees

Rick Boller, Executive Director Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation, states “We are honored to receive the All At Once Sustainability Award. We have enjoyed our on-going partnership with everyone on Jack Johnson’s team and their support and assistance in launching all of our Greening the Bowl initiatives. We mostly want to recognize and thank our patrons for their active participation with the MyPintAndMe program. It is exciting to have so many supporters do their part in reducing over 10,000 plastic cups since Jack Johnson’s concerts in 2014.”

Johnson, whose music career began in Santa Barbara, is proud of his hometown venue’s greening efforts and specifically their commitment to reducing single-use plastics. “Being an ocean loving community we all appreciate the Bowl’s leadership in keeping plastic out of the waste stream, knowing that so much of it finds it’s way to the sea,” said Johnson.

The award ceremony is timely, as Johnson recently returned from the 5 Gyres SEA Change expedition from the Bahamas to Bermuda, conducting research on plastic ocean pollution, where he was able to see environmental impacts first- hand and discuss solutions with leading scientists, artists, and ocean advocates. While in the Bahamas, Johnson was also designated as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme to help promote environmental causes, including plastic pollution initiatives.

In addition to recognizing outstanding green venues like the Santa Barbara Bowl, Johnson continues to improve his own sustainability practices on the road. The 2014 From Here To Now To You Tour eliminated over 18,392 single-use plastic bottles with water refill stations and reusables, supported 35 local farms with the purchase of locally grown and organic produce, sourced over 10,054 gallons of sustainable biodiesel and offset an estimated 2,462,600 pounds of CO2 through green touring and fan participation. Through Johnson’s All At Once campaign, the tour supported over 150 community groups focusing on plastic free initiatives, sustainable local food systems, and other hands-on environmental projects.

GregYoungPublishing.com v4 now live!

Now in their 14th year of doing business with In Color, Santa Barbara fine art publishing company, Greg Young Publishing, is continuing strong growth in online fine art and licensing sales. In the last half-dozen years since it has been under the control and direction of In Color, gregyoungpublishing.com has undergone it's fourth major revision and upgrade, bringing this store into the forefront of ecommerce solutions.

Last year, we added the option to buy framed artwork, and we cut our timeframe from order to ship down by two days. As a result of these changes, and through better site organization, a more user-friendly customer experience and better SEO, the store saw a year-over-year increase in sales of 40%.

Greg Young Publishing partners with In Color through both managed hosting, and drop-ship, fine art printing services. "This is a great win-win situation," says In Color principal, Art Fisher. "We have a finely honed machine that simply works in every aspect; we've set expectations high, but we deliver a great product, and our customers tell us they're very happy with the end product." The store has a few active resellers, and soon we will also set up an affiliate marking program.

If you're looking for vintage travel art, vintage aviation photography, or early American/California impressionist artwork, I strongly suggest that you check out gregyoungpublishing.com.

UPDATE: This website and store is now closed. Gregyoungpublishing.com has changed significantly in scope and nature and is now the project of a different company. For other interesting vintage art, check out In Color's http://vintageart.store.

In Color has published a second coffee table book to compliment our 2013 publication about Santa Barbara's annual Old Spanish Days - Fiesta celebration. This book has the same measurements and page count as Fiesta, and will be ready for purchase in June, 2015.

Featuring the photography and design of In Color principal, A. Arthur Fisher, this book incorporates 13 years of Summer Solstice Celebration photography, and it includes chapters about each aspect of the event: float building, pre-parade preparations, the widely-cherished parade and the events at Alameda Park. The book's text is written by Santa Barbara native, Jenna Tico, and the foreword was provided by the Summer Solstice Celebration organization. Combined with Fiesta, this pair make a complete set of the two largest annual, summer celebrations in the county.

There's a separate website to promote the Solstice book at http://sbsolstice.com. Both books are available for order from http://artfisher.com.

Medical website for SB-Global

Long-time client Ground Zero Software has expanded their reach of medical tracking and analysis software again. First targeting physicians and clinicians of AIDS patients, GZS later expanded into the Hemaphilia market. Now, they've branched out to include the Spina bifida market, as well, with their new company, SB-Global.

In all three cases, In Color has been there for GZS to develop their online presence. Along with In Color associate, John Hollis, we are happy to announce the go-live of spinabifidaehr.com. Mr. Hollis worked as the project manager and copywriter on this project, as he did with the other two GZS sites. He has worked with In Color on successful projects dating back to 1999.

This new website is designed to look and feel similar to GZS's existing two websites, labtracker.com and hemaglobal.com. In Color developed the logos and websites for all three.
