Press Release: David Simchock Fine Art Business & Website Launch

Asheville Photographer Launches Dedicated Fine Art Business & Website

Celebration & Art Shows Set for September & October

Asheville, NC – Asheville freelance photographer and artist, David Simchock, has completed the next phase in the evolution of his creative endeavors with the launch of a dedicated business and website for his fine art activities.  Until recently, Simchock marketed and sold his artwork under the David Simchock Photography brand.  With the new website now live for David Simchock Fine Art (, along with business and marketing plans to back it, Simchock is set to take his art ambitions to another level, and reach a wider market of collectors.

He will be celebrating this milestone at his River Arts District Studio / Gallery on Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm.  As part of the evening’s festivities, David will conduct a gallery talk at 8:00pm (Title:  How to Photograph Fall Foliage).  Of course, his artwork will be available for sale at the party.  The event is free and open to the public.  DETAILS HERE

Simchock has been an integral part of the Asheville River Arts District since moving south from New Jersey with his family over two years ago, operating a cozy studio / gallery on Depot Street.  One visit to his unique space enables a virtual trip around the world, with colorful imagery on show that spans six continents.  And, though he has only been resident in Appalachia for a couple of years, he has built up quite a sizeable library of photos from Asheville and Western North Carolina.  His offerings range from affordable matted prints to higher-end large-format artworks printed on both canvas and on wood, and presented in exquisite custom-made frames – works that Simchock likes to refer to as his “Big & Bold” collection.

Asked why he decided to split his art efforts from his commissioned shooting services, Simchock responds: “The longer I’m in the business, which has now been over ten years, the more I realize that each of my three distinct photography activities are serving different markets.  The publication art editors and commerical clients that I serve with my shooting aren’t likely the same folks that would want to invest in my artwork or take photography lessons from me.  So, from a marketing perspective alone, it made a lot of sense to separate my art endeavors from everything else, just as I did with Vagabond Vistas Photo Tours for my teaching.”

The DSFA website currently allows buyers to easily purchase Simchock’s fine art matted prints with a couple of clicks on their mouse.  But, this is only the beginning of his on line presence.  “In the coming weeks and months, I will expand the options to include variations of my work, including canvas gallery wraps, prints on metal and, of course, my Big & Bold selections on both canvas and wood.”

Coinciding with the launch of DSFA is Simchock’s first stab at the art show circuit.  “I’ve been throwing around the idea of doing shows for some time, and thought that with the launch of DSFA the timing was perfect to sample the waters.  I’ve been accepted into Weaverville’s Art in Autumn show (Saturday, September 21) and Hendersonville’s Art on Main show (October 5 & 6).  Given that I have such a nice space in RAD to show my work, I don’t see myself loading up my schedule with street shows, but I’m excited to start out with these local events, and we’ll see where things go from there.  I may also have a serious look at gallery representation, but that is further down the road.”

Concludes Simchock, “This is a very important step in my career as an artist, and it will certainly enable me to better satisfy the market needs for my art, whether that be the casual household buyer, the corporate investor, or the interior designers that are interested in a diverse and worldly collection of images from a single source.  The DSFA website is fairly conprehensive to begin with, featuring more than 300 images, but I have hundreds more worthy images in the archives and I’m always generating more material.  Combined with my activities at my studio / gallery and with a few shows, this should prove to be quite an interesting journey deeper into the art world.”
