Launching new book at Studio 101 Gallery in Fort Worth!

First book signing with early copies of the book! Book signing with Paul Chaplo at Studio 101 Gallery in Fort Worth. Chaplo will launch his new art book “Amarillo Flights” book at this premier event, bringing early copies of his new book for signing with a personalized inscription, just in time for those last minute Holiday gifts. The book captures the high plains and canyon lands of Texas and Eastern New Mexico in dramatic fine art aerial photographs. Collaborating with seven pilots and using eight airplanes and one helicopter, Chaplo and his team covered 40,000 square miles of landscape in the making of the book. Embedded in the dramatic images are many historic sites with intriguing stories. Amarillo Flights is published by Texas A&M University Press as part of the WTAMU’s “American Wests” Series. The introduction to the book was written by Walt Davis, who wonderfully bridges the worlds of art and history.
