The White Rock Beach Gallery – Has Grown over the years because of LOVERS of Wall ART, Poster Prints, Photo Prints, Postcards, Greeting Cards and Magnets.


Below was the first day setting up as an artist as part of the Artist Walk program. This was a one tent and one table setup. Bringing a spinner rack for cards is not a good idea, as the rack broke after a few setups.




Waterfront Promenade Gallery – Artist Walk Outside (weather permitting)
Ric Wallace will have his 10′ x 10′ tent set up west of the White Rock Museum
 under the Art Walk program weather & his time schedule permitting.

This 24″ x 36″ collage took over 3 long days and many proofs to master this wall art. It has 15 photos that tells the story of the December 20, 2018 storm that took out the White Rock beach Pier.
There is no other collage or photo on the market showing what took place in one photo as a 24″ x 36″ acrylic print. Many people have purchased Storm of the Century postcard sets, photos and had a framing store mat and frame the prints.  This is ready to hang on the wall. 

This would be ideal for any office, waiting room, restaurant and would attract attention.

This was a one tent and 5 table setup, with 60 pounds or weights to hold the tent down. Problem: too much product exposed to direct sunlight.

This was a one tent and 5 table setup, with 60 pounds or weights to hold the tent down. I started to create my own boxes to display products.

This was a 4 table square setup with a 30″ x 60″ canvas print on display in front of the White Rock train station (using NO TENT). This setup is at RISK of bird poop; a tent is better for artwork displays. This only works on an overcast day and not a day with harsh sunshine.

The above is a 2 tent & 5 tables setup, which has been reduced to a 4 table setup, making use of 2’x4′ grid panels. This is the best setup. Postcard & greeting card pockets ganged together hang from tables. The above photo is almost the perfect setup for selling postcards, greeting cards, magnets, prints, matted prints, framed prints, canvas prints and acrylic prints.

Below are some past setups. 

This setup was on March 23 and turned out to be very effective. The family shown below from Edmonton, Alberta loved the yellow sunrise showing Mount Baker, WA. This was going to be hanging in their YELLOW painted bathroom. I snapped a photo of the family holding the canvas print they just purchased, making their special day to White Rock Beach even more SPECIAL. Getting customers to help promote your work is something many artists do not do. Ric Wallace – Mr White Rock is a master of promotion- with Scottish in his DNA – getting it for FREE is what he does all the time.

Canvas prints are lightweight and can cover a large area quickly. If you do not shrink wrap the edges, they will soon get damaged.

Christmas Gift Idea #35 – Photo Restoration By Ric Wallace – The Photo Doctor

Old, torn and sometimes photos in two or more pieces can be restored to their original state or better. Ric Wallace does a high resolution scan from your original image and electronically uses a computer to do the retouching and corrections. High quality photographic prints can be obtained from the computer file. The computer file can be supplied on CD/ DVD, USB, or downloaded from the internet to ensure exact copies can be made for years to come, with no loss in quality like prints made from negatives which will degrade over time.

UPATE ON THIS VIDEO: The customer went to Walmart with the large digital file and got some posters made for display at places where they were playing. They were looking for T-Shirts with this image and another one I scanned. I referred them to one of my Greeting Card Retailers who prints on T shirts and other clothing. Need T-Shirts, or other clothing with a photo, name logo, etc  - contact Will  @ Ethical Addiction Apparel and mention the The Photo Doctor / AKA Ric Wallace referred you.

Ric Wallace has been restoring photos for years first by using an airbrush and fine tip brushes. With the mainstream use of computers, Ric has disposed of the darkroom equipment and chemicals, and instead uses  computers, digital cameras, high res scanners, and various computer programs, photo printers, mat cutter, etc.

Computers have changed the way things are now done, but the basics or old way things were done gives Ric a Virtual Edge over other people offering Photo Restoration.

Many stores may offer photo restoration as they get someone else to do the work and markup the price. When you hire Ric Wallace you are talking to the organ grinder and not the monkey like at retail stores.


Ric works his magic and has even taken passport photographs, restored them to a better than original state, and produced quality photographic enlargements for wall display. This service is invaluable for genealogy enthusiasts trying to put together family albums.retouch-03

Old, faded, and cracked photographs can be brought back to life with our expert digital restoration techniques.


Consider purchasing a DIGITAL EXACT copy of the FINAL HI-RES photo at 300 DPI (JPG) – for an additional fee. (not included with standard packages)
Digital files maybe kept on our storage devices for a limited time and may be deleted without notice after services are rendered and paid in full. Customers who purchased digital files are recommended to have many copies on disk, USB and/or cloud based storage. Digital computer files do not fade or disappear like old negatives or prints. Making prints from-the high res digital files will allow the highest quality image to be printed. Sharing this file means family or friends can look after getting their own prints with their own money, saving you $$$. Using output services such as Walmart, drug stores or home printers will vary in quality.
PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT allowed to copy photographs that have a copyright stamp or symbol on them, such as school photos, team photos, magazines, newspapers, etc. If you have a photo with a stamp on the back please contact the listed person or company for reprints. If the photographer has passed away or the company is out of business we would have to review the situation. Anyone with an original negative film will be considered the lawful owner of the image. Any prints or digital files are your property to do with as you wish, once paid in full. Any future reprints would have to be ordered by you or have your approval in writing.
We need the photo supplied loose -- not framed or behind glass. Photos larger than 8.5" x 11" will have to copied using a camera on a tripod as opposed to scanning on a high resolution flatbed scanner. These will have a higher cost to digitize the image as it is considered a photography service, not a scanning service.
We reserve the right to refuse to copy obscene, offensive, unlawful or objectionable materials. Please contact us for any concerns you may have.

Not sure how to email a photo? NO PROBLEM – you can call by voice on the phone.
