    Have you ever looked at a painting, and said to yourself, “I have no clue” and wondered ”do I have that deer in the headlights expression on my face right now?”  

    Or, have you come across a painting and suddenly been overwhelmed with its beauty, connecting you to either a fond memory or something you’ve always dreamed of experiencing?

    Whether you may be inextricably drawn, or horribly repulsed - art has the ability to move us like no other expression of human creativity.  

    Get ready...you've yet to experience a discussion quite like this!

    Using an ancient technique developed by the famed grecian philosophers, we will engage artist and art appreciators alike and peer behind the veils of beauty, metaphor and illusion to explore the subtitles of art.  

    We will learn how cultural anthropology, psychology, mythology and our very biology uses the texture of paint and other mediums to manipulate color and form, light and shadow; and how they all play a role in evoking that elusive sense of grandeur that art can instantly catapult us to.

    Join us at the Tuesday Night Art Lounge!

    Where artistic beauty meets passion, and culture weaves together savvy personal connections that will inspire and help reveal life’s deeper purpose.

    Mix, Mingle and Muse every Tuesday Night at the Art Lounge…

    Canvas Giclee:

    Our Signed and Numbered Canvas Giclees are printed on canvas and are the same size as the original painting. By printing on canvas, the colors achieved are bright and vivid, mirroring the intensity of Grant's originals. Our canvas giclees are stretched on heavy duty stretcher bars and are museum wrapped (the painting continues around the sides), adding a three dimensional studio feel and creating the option to hang them unframed for a more contemporary look. Each one is signed on the front and signed and numbered on the back. Our Signed and Numbered Canvas Giclee are in an edition of 100 (there are only 100 ever made).

    Artist Enhanced Giclee:

    Take a Canvas Giclee, hand highlight it, make it one of a kind, and you’ll have an Artist Enhanced Giclee. Our Artist Enhanced Giclees are custom ordered and painted specially for you. Grant hand embellishes each one of these original creations with paint, adding brushstrokes, texture and pops of color. The paint really brings the giclee to life, adding bright, vivid color – there is nothing like it. Our Artist Enhanced Giclées are the next best thing to our originals (at less than half the cost). Each one is signed on the front and numbered on the back. Keeping within Grant’s commitment to his art, he has set the edition size very low. Our Artist Enhanced Giclees are in an edition of 50 (there are only 50 ever made).

    Perfect Giclee on Metal:

    Our Perfect Giclees are printed on Metal with bright vibrant colors and a high gloss varnish. By printing on metal, the colors achieved are bright and vivid, mirroring the intensity of Grant's originals. Our Perfet Giclees are produced using the latest in die-sublimation technology and the finest materials available on the market. This combination allows us to create an unparalleled color gamut with the highest archival standards available. Each Perfect Giclee includes hanging hardware on the back, so they are ready to hang as soon as you get them home. They are each signed on the front. They are printed in an open edition.

    MiniGiclee:

    Our canvas MiniGiclees are the same as our Perfect Giclee on Metals, just smaller - kind of a bite-size giclee, for somewhere that you would like a small pop of color. They are often hung next to a bedside or next to a your computer for a mini-escape. They are also wonderful in a grouping of 3 for a greater impact. They are mounted on an archival art sentra board and they include hanging hardware on the back, so they are ready to hang as soon as you get them home. They are printed in an open edition.

     

    WHAT IS A GICLEE?

    A Giclee (pronounced zhee-clay) is a high-end upscale fine art reproduction. Each giclee is custom created, one-at-a-time as it is acquired by collectors.

    In the giclee process, the image is generated from a high-resolution digital scan and printed with UV inks onto archival quality canvas. An ultra-fine stream of non-toxic water based ink, more than 4 million droplets per second, is jet-sprayed onto the canvas. This produces a combination of over 3 million possible colors resulting in prints that are lush and vibrant with the look and tonality of a fine art oil painting. Limited-edition giclees are signed on the front of the piece and numbered on the back.

    A fantastic advantage of giclee printing is that the digital images can be reproduced to almost any size, giving the artist the ability to customize prints for a specific client.

    Giclee prints have gained worldwide acceptance in the art community and can be found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Louvre in Paris displaying works which cannot be allowed out of the museum cellars, and would otherwise never be shown to the public.
