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. (Episode 4 should go online early next week!)

A special edition of our newsletter is linked below featuring our biographies, some notes about the show, more making-of photos, as well as features of the various projects shown in the episode. We also extended this release to include artistic works by our affiliates that made the cut!

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.” –

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.
