Welcome to Art Gems
What we offer: Ready to hang Museum quality giclée stretched canvas prints framed in gold leaf (plein air style) hardwood frames in two sizes.
A Quick Lesson about Giclées: Quite simply they are the ultimate in canvas printing technology. A giclée canvas print is stretched and stapled exactly like an oil painting. Unlike a paper print, this canvas can be inserted into a wood frame with no glass or matting so the look is that of an original oil painting.Giclée inks are also brilliant and appear heavier, more like oil, than other inks. The printing process is nothing short of revolutionary. When creating giclees, sophisticated ink-jet printers spray millions of highly pigmented ink droplets (giclée is a French noun that describes "a spray") onto a canvas. Our giclées are in the museum fine art quality category. These prints are made on acid free canvas and utilize a 10-color printing process in 1440 x 2880 pixel resolution.
How Can We Be So Affordable? We have a much more compassionate philosophy than most art publishers. We think beautiful art should, and can be, more affordable. See About Us page for the full story.
Our Current Artist Inventory: Klimt, Mucha, Monet, Van Gogh, John William Waterhouse and our growing Adirondack Artist Collection (Tomorrow's Masters!) Our current sizes (unframed dimensions) are 12" x 12" and 12" x 16".
Be sure to see our newest line! By embellishing our canvas giclées with acrylic gems, we've created the Gemclée! What a marriage it makes! It brings the prints alive and they sparkle even in low evening and night-time lighting. It is quite an effect...
