Smith Gallery deals in fine art, not just pigments put onto canvas. We offer topnotch artwork, with an emphasis on California Landscapes and Sacramento Images.
One of the marks of good art is an absence of apparent effort. Whether watching dance or viewing a painting, when we can lose ourselves in the magic of the creation without a distracting awareness of the mind-bending or backbreaking work involved in the making of it, we’re in the presence of a master. Vicki Asp's plein air paintings of California vineyards, oak trees, hills, lakes and agriculture themed images capture the unique golden light of California's sunshine.
Memering is known for his Sacramento landmarks and glowing landscapes. Known for making the State Capitol look gorgeous in acrylic, he also travels the world over and paints his impressions on canvas. The result is impressive. He paints these places as one's mind and heart might remember them, not as a camera would. The result is what he calls "FANTASY REALISM".
Limited Edition Canvas Prints Are Affordable Fine Art For Any Wall!
Also called a “giclee”, a limited edition is a published reproduction of an original painting. Smith Gallery is the publisher of the works of some of it's represented artists. Smith Gallery’s photographer uses a $40,000 camera and $10,000 lights to take the absolute best quality picture possible of the original paintings. The resulting digital image is color corrected using Adobe Photoshop to guarantee the colors are true to the painters’ palette.
The image is then transferred onto canvas by a large printer that sprays true pigments onto the canvas in very high quality (“giclee” is the French term for “spray”).
The canvas is then stretched onto stretcher bars with either the image on the sides, or black painted sides - so no framing is required!
The artist signs the reproduction and numbers it as an authentic limited edition. Limited Editions are an excellent way for anyone to have fine art hanging on their wall in a variety of sizes and prices to fit any wall and budget!
