Bridging the Divide

Kebler Pass, Colorado

A lone pine tree stands between divided aspen calling them to recognize all that they share in common.

America has become a nation with two almost diametrically opposed cultures and world views rowing in opposite directions. The greatest challenge that our nation faces today is in finding ways to overcome this divide, to find common ground. Such change never starts with someone else, instead it always begins with myself and with my community. Each of us must find ways to build relationships across the divide. We don’t have to agree on politics but we do have to agree on each other’s humanity, to see the good that exists in the other, to trust the other’s intentions even if we don’t understand them. This is a hard path. It’s always much easier to get angry, to hate and to separate, yet if we continue down the path of division, the results will not be good. Who will be brave and take the hand of someone they disagree with to find common ground we can stand on together?

Bridging the Divide print

The print only option is the most affordable route to go. It is just what it sounds like: prints on high quality archival photographic paper without any mounting or framing. One of the benefits of going this route is that you can bring them to your local frame shop to have the matted and framed exactly as you like. Prints are also great if you are in a hurry as they usually arrive in 5-7 days from the time of order.

This mounting option is by far our most popular format. It is both durable and beautiful. It allows the images to reveal an almost three dimensional quality creating the impression of actually being there. This is because there is almost no glare or reflection such as you find with even the most expensive types of glass. An additional benefit is that the artwork is very durable and can even be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. The artwork also resists fading because it has UV protection. When you order a plaque from us, they arrive ready to hang.

Select a print size:

You can order prints in various formats such as print only, plaque, framed plaque, acrylic or matted. Upon special request, we also offer our prints in canvas.
