Send, give, collect, LUMAS takes art to a new level by making art not only accessible but also shareable and portable
VANCOUVER, March 8, 2016 /CNW/ - LUMAS Gallery has always put the accessibility and democratization of art at the forefront of its objectives. Most recently with the launch of Art Now, a collection of postcard-sized photographs to easily give or collect. Set at the accessible price of $38, they arrive ready to hang with built-in hooks and magnets, as well as an acrylic desk stand for display. These practicalities are all in the name of LUMAS' mantra; 'Art should be seen.'
Many different themes weave in and out of the Art Now Collection, making it the ideal microcosm of a personal photography portfolio, with seven different artist series featured in the launch.
Young Canadian artist, David Eger and his Cloned Photos images revitalize the historic and the iconic by replacing the characters in some of the world's most renowned photographic works with Storm Trooper figurines.
With equal humor, Catherine Ledner, in her Animal House series, projects the jovial as she shows an array of bipedal and four-legged creatures posing like top models.
Beautifully packaged, and ready to send, Art Now is available to Canadian customers in-store in our Vancouver gallery at 305 Water Street and through www.lumas.com.
With more than 40 galleries, spanning 23 different countries, LUMAS is one of the world's most successful fine art photography brands. Offering museum quality, limited edition fine art photographic prints at accessible prices, LUMAS has grown into a highly popular global brand. Within their galleries, LUMAS' unique interior design concept is that of a collector's home, showcasing photography within a setting designed to look and feel like as it would in its intended room.
LUMAS' creation of a new space for art offers young collectors and art-lovers, a diverse selection of more than 1,800 hand-signed works by over 200 established artists and emerging talents' original photographs in editions of 75 to 150. This enables LUMAS to provide museum-quality art photography at affordable prices for everyone, starting from just $100. LUMAS currently has two Canadian locations: one Vancouver located in Gastown and the other in Toronto located in Yorkville. Plans to open more galleries across Canada, including Montreal are scheduled for 2017.
