Initial Announcements - Artisans International TV Debut on EBRU-TV's "BLANK CANVAS"

Artisans of the Valley is joining the ranks of international TV stars!
  • ... OK fine we're not THAT popular yet … but we'll get there!

Seriously - we were privileged to become part of EBRU-TV's new US based productions, Artisans will be featured in Episode 4 of "Blank Canvas"

For those of you who have RCN as a cable provider you can watch on Channel #53. Or, if perhaps you have a satellite receiver that carries EBRU-TV you can watch the show at the premier broadcast live - configure your dish to the parameters at the end of this article!

The rest of us have to bite our fingers waiting until the streaming video option comes online hopefully by early next week. Meanwhile catch up on the series as the first three episodes are already online.

This is a special feature edition of Artisans' Quarterly Review featuring more details about us and the projects featured in our international television debut! Artisans of the Valley with a cast of characters including Eric M. Saperstein, Theresa Tonte, Stanley D. Saperstein, and a rare on camera appearance by Cindy Saperstein join EBRU TV's new show entitled "Blank Canvas."

"Each week on Blank Canvas, we meet extraordinary artists and share in their stories of passion and dedication. What drove them to their art? How did it feel the first time they picked up that brush and filled up a blank canvas? Sometimes it is a form of personal expression, and other times, it is a way to preserve one's heritage. A few rare artists even use their art forms to build bridges and foster dialogue, bringing people together. We also delve into the life of the artist, his fears and passions and ultimately how he uses his art form to make sense of the world and strengthen his connection to the divine." - www.ebru.tv

The show features as an eleven minute segment of a half hour show featuring two artist profiles in each episode. Filmed on May 29, 2009 - the show will be aired on September 24th. We're hoping that more networks pick up the EBRU programming soon, they are a growing Turkish based company that has an established worldwide audience.

Artisans Featured in Second-Season Premier of Tanked!

Artisans of the Valley of Pennington, N.J., one of the nation's premier custom furniture and antique restoration studios, received commissions from Acrylic Tank Manufacturing of Las Vegas, in conjunction with Nancy Glass Productions of Bala Cynwyd, PA for Animal Planet's hit series "Tanked."

Artisans of the Valley designed and built a custom cherry cabinet surround for a refrigerator tank that will be featured in the second-season premiere, on Saturday April 14th at 9pm EST on Animal Planet. The piece was built for Plesser's Appliance in Babylon, NY as a showpiece for the store entrance.

Reality TV requires more than just stars and cameras, local resources are called upon to provide support. Artists and craftsmen often donate time and materials in exchange for otherwise unachievable national publicity. Artisans of the Valley's relationship with the cast and crew of "Tanked" follows this storyline.

Photo by Eric M. Saperstein; "Tanked" Episode 5, Season 1 featuring an original design fish tank designed following the theme of the children's story THE MAGGIE B. The project included a custom solid cherry "Sea Chest Bed" by Artisans of the Valley.

Following the antics of two brothers-in-law as they run the largest aquarium manufacturing company in the nation, "Tanked" dunks viewers into the high-decibel, family-owned business of Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM). Led by business partners, best friends and constant rivals Wayde King and Brett Raymer, this 13,000 square foot facility, located in Las Vegas, produces some of the most outrageous, larger-than-life and one-of-a-kind tanks for some of the most striking fish and clients around.

Artisans of the Valley is operated by Master Craftsman Eric M. Saperstein & Michael Pietras, along with Eric's father who is retired but enjoys providing input into the business. Father and son, and friends from high school create original artistic and functional furniture, woodcarvings, and sculptures. The last of their kind, at the end of the day and after their daily creative differences are resolved, these craftsmen restore our nation's treasures and create tomorrow's heirlooms.

Watch the second-season trailer at the link below, our "Sea Chest Bed" is a feature project!

Stay tuned - we'll reveal details of the project featured in this episode after the first air date!
