FINE ART AMERICA
The Fine Art America website http://stan-kwong.artistwebsites.com/ has several options for the purchase of prints. You can purchase prints of my original art, photos, and digital art on metal, acrylic, canvas, paper and greeting cards. The greeting cards are 5 x 7 inches and you can configure them in a variety of ways, adjusting the image size, background colour, and writing your own text for the inside. They can be ordered individually or in packages of 10 or 25.
Any of the images can be ordered as prints on metal, acrylic, canvas, or paper in a wide range of sizes, from as small as 5" x 8" to approximately 4 feet x 3 feet, depending on the dimensions of the original.
With the metal prints the image is printed directly onto a sheet of 1/16" thick aluminum. The aluminum sheet is offset from the wall by a 3/4" thick wooden frame which is attached to the back and includes a hanging wire for easy wall mounting. These metal prints are very durable, lightweight, won't bend, and are water resistant. For the acrylic prints the image gets printed directly onto the back of a 1/4" thick sheet of clear acrylic. You can choose two different options for mounting. The high gloss of the aluminum or acrylic sheet complements the rich colours of any image and makes it very easy to keep your art clean!
Stretched canvas prints add texture and depth to the image. The image is printed on premium canvas and then stretched on a wooden frame of stretcher bars. You can choose gallery wrap or museum wrap and opt for framed or unframed. Choosing frames is great entertainment because you get to play on the website, selecting various sizes, styles and colours of frames and instantly seeing what it will look like.
Prints on paper can be purchased on a variety of types of paper and you can choose to purchase the print shipped as a poster (rolled in a cardboard tube) or framed. Again, you get the pleasure of choosing your print, the size of the print, the style, size and colour of your frame, and choice of mats (0, 1 or 2) and colour of mat. Some prints work well in specific frames without a mat - others seem to cry out for a mat. It's a fun exercise even if you have no intention of purchasing anything. One can spend hours playing with the possibilities on this site...
And if wall art is not what you're after, my art can be transferred onto a variety of other surfaces including cell phone cases, shower curtains, rugs, beach towels, blankets, cushions, note cards, tote bags, and more. The size, shape and configuration of each art work determines whether or not it would be suitable for printing on home decor and other items.
RIVERBEND'S "ART IN OUR PARK"
"Art in Our Park" in Edmonton's Riverbend community takes place every year in September. It is a family friendly FREE arts festival featuring an art market, interactive & multidisciplinary workshops and activities, live music and dance on multiple stages, and much more. I have been showing and selling my original works at this event for the past several years. If you're interested in purchasing any of my original pieces this is your one opportunity each year to do so.
I look forward to this event each year as an opportunity not only to show and sell my art, but to meet new art lovers, and to re-connect with previous clients and fellow artists. Over the years a wonderful camaraderie has developed among the organizers, volunteers, and artists.
