Aspen Avenue at Ophir Pass

Telluride, San Juan Mountains, Colorado

The Ophir Pass Road has the reputation of being one of the easiest of the high trails in the San Juans. It was originally established as a wagon road between the mines around Ophir and Telluride to Silverton. The road begins about 5 miles south of Red Mountain Pass and approximately the same distance north of Silverton on US 550. A sign on the west side of 550 marks the location of the start of the Ophir Pass Road. The trail winds through forested land in the Middle Mineral Creek area until it reaches the tree line and continues to the rocky summit at 11,789 feet. When the road is plowed open in June it is not unusual to find walls of snow up to 20 feet high at the summit. The summit of the pass is formed by Lookout Peak on the north and South Lookout Peak on the south. The road descending into the valley is a long shelf road on talus. This section of the Pass has been used as a backdrop for a number of Subaru advertising commercials. Proper caution is required on this section. At the foot of Ophir pass is the town of Old Ophir.

DuraWrap mounted Canvas Print

DuraWrap mounted Canvas Print

A DuraPlaq canvas print is mounted in a fully acid-free manner to a rigid, lightweight substrate and finished with a hollow black backing and wire hanger to keep the DuraWrap lightweight. Taking advantage of the super smooth satin option, a high clarity DuraPlaq print is produced. Each Durawrap is protected with an acid free, fine art protective coating to give it moisture resistance and UV protection. A mirrored image is used for the side edges. Wire hanger is provided as the standard hanging system for this product, DuraWrap product comes ready to hang, complete with appropriate hanging hardware suitable to most traditional wall installations.  This is truly a revolutionary product and is a great economic way to collect my larger fine art mountain prints!

MegaPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

MegaPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

This is a modern method of mounting images, also known as “MegaPlaq” which brings an element of substance and dimension to plaque mounted art as it is finished with a one (1) inch deep beveled edge. The substantial nature of the mounted image can be seen from any angle when displayed. Art is mounted on a thick recycled, eco-friendly wood substrate, acid-free surface and finished with a black beveled edge.  The backside is hollowed out to reduce weight and conceal a convenient “French” cleat hanging system allowing the MegaPlaq to hang securely, flush against a wall.  The image is sealed with a special semi-matte UV laminate, which both protects the print and makes it moisture resistant.  The emi-matte UV finish reduces reflections while maintaining excellent image clarity and contrasts.

PlexiPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

PlexiPlaq Mounted, Ready to Hang

This outstanding display method (sometimes called “Diasec”) provides the glossy metallic paper images with unbeatably crystal-clear, three-dimensional feel as the picture is seen through the acrylic. The Artwork is mounted to the back of art-grade, UV protected, and scratch-resistant acrylic giving the artwork a look that is as durable as it is unique.  A 0.125 inch black, acid-free board is provided on the back of Standard PlexiPlaq to fully encase and protect face mounted artwork.  The edge is finished with a frosted beveled edge to accent the mounted artwork. To accentuate the dimensionality of artwork, a “French” cleat hanging system is applied to the backside of the PlexiPlaq for mounting.  The end result is an image the effectively “floats” half an inch off the wall.
