THE ART CLUB TO UNVEIL "FRESH FORWARD"
September 3, 2009 - Seattle, WA—The Art Club, a contemporary wall décor division of Picture Source, will unveil its own division of ultra-modern artworks called “Fresh Forward” with an open invitation ribbon cutting and wine reception at the Las Vegas World Market on Monday, September 14 beginning at 4:00 p.m. in their space located in A319. The celebration will continue with an additional open invitation wine reception held Tuesday, September 15 at 4:00 p.m.
“Fresh Forward” is a high-end, super-contemporary line of giclee artwork, and the initial launch includes 18 eclectic works including unique photographs, digitally rendered art, and graphically enhanced pieces. The concept for the collection will speak to young urbanites looking for uniquely original art mediums.
One of the collection’s highlights is an edgy 3-D presentation called “Anaglyph 32”. A sizable 44 x 44 inches, this multi-faceted canvas will require the use of 3-D glasses for enhanced viewing and will be provided to all attendees to capture the piece’s true essence. At first glance, the shiny oval discs swirl like a rainbow of shiny coins tossed in the air above a background of inky black.
There will also be a series of color photographs entitled “Indelible.” Submerged underwater and then photographed, flowers appear to be floating, while some are delicately framed by tiny air bubbles. The water creates an ethereal backdrop for the flowers’ wispy yet vivid forms. Beautifully executed, the series will be printed on paper and framed with crisp white mats and a silver frame.
Julia Davis, design and marketing director for The Art Club, stated, “The artists we work with for “Fresh Forward” are creating a whole new design trend and are constantly pushing the envelope in both color and style.” She adds, “The artwork speaks beautifully for itself, so the framing can be crisp and minimal.” Since the line is highly exclusive, price points are a bit higher than traditional pieces. Traditional pricing of The Art Club line averages $298.00 for approximate retail of framed open edition prints. The “Fresh Forward” collection of limited edition giclees will retail at an approximate range of $350-$2475. Each “Fresh Forward” print will be offered in multiple size options to fit any budget and space.
As with the The Art Club, “Fresh Forward” will be distributed through major retail chains, boutiques, independent interior designers, and lifestyle furniture stores, as well as contract and hospitality chains throughout North America and beyond.
