Below is a collection of frequently asked questions. If you don’t find the answer you’re looking for, please send Kyle your question via the Contact page. Thank you!
Artwork & Framing
A giclee print (pronounced “zhee-klay”) is a museum-grade reproduction of an original work of art. A high-resolution digital file of the artwork is printed on a slightly textured Somerset velvet paper with long lasting, high quality inks. The major advantages of giclee prints are incredible color accuracy and resistance to fading over time.
Framing is a personal choice and varies from image to image, therefore it is not available to order through Kyle Lucks Fine Art. Most of the prints offered come in standard sizes, meaning they don’t require custom framing. A wide variety of retail outlets offer pre-made frames, from art stores to big box retailers. Below is a list of recommendations and website links:
Common Frame Sizes for Prints:
- 8×10 inch print = 11×14 inch frame, with a 8×10 inch mat (actually measures 7.5″x9.5″)
- 11×14 inch print = 16×20 inch frame, with an 11×14 inch mat (actually measures 10.5″x13.5″)
- 12×18 inch print = 18×24 inch frame, with an 12×18 inch mat (actually measures 11.5″x17.5″)
I am fortunate to have my work shown around the city. For starters, my watercolor originals and giclee prints are for sale at the Green Door Art Gallery in Webster Groves. I am one of about twenty residents artists. The gallery hours are Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. We also have receptions every other month offering wine, hors d’0euvres, and a chance to chat with the artists.
Meanwhile, my large acrylic sports paintings are hanging at The Wheelhouse sports bar in Clayton and Downtown by Busch Stadium. Both locations offer great food and a fun atmosphere for watching sports or just enjoying happy hour.
Town & Country Dental Care in St. Louis has a variety of acrylic paintings on the walls, some of which are for sale. The paintings complement the classy St. Louis sports-themed office, run by Dr. Blake Eyres and his excellent team.
In addition, I create watercolor illustrations for Ladue News Magazine throughout the year. The projects include the annual “Show House” in the fall, in which I paint the exterior house portrait for the magazine advertisements, and an interior portrait for the cover of the fall “Elegant Living” issue. I also paint the cover for the spring issue based on its featured article. Plus, I may illustrate an article or two in Ladue News itself, in which I will announce the dates it will be on the newsstands.
