Other ideas for the title: Fresh Views, Art Grows in Buffalo, please offer some ideas.
This is old news - we'd have to find something new.
A photo taken on Main Street in Buffalo across from Canisius College has made its way into a boxed set of greeting cards being sold at 804 Target stores across the country. The photo, which features ice-covered trees lining a snowy path, was taken by Ann Peterson, a local photographer and owner of greeting card company Mundo Images. She was exhibiting the photo at the 2010 New York Gift Show in Manhattan’s Jacob Javits Convention Center when it caught the eye of a national distributor. “I had mixed reactions at first because I try to do everything locally and have control over my materials,” Peterson said.
The image is already featured in a Mundo Images set of 10 Christmas cards, which retails for $16. Target changed the card’s layout and added glitter, and included it in a set of 40 cards which retails for $15. Peterson will receive a 3 percent royalty of all sales until 2014. Peterson exhibits her work in Allentown at her Mundo Images Gallery at 500 Franklin St.
