Elaine Weiner-Reed - Limited Edition Signed Giclee Prints Available On-Demand


You Asked, I Listened




LIMITED EDITION PRINTS ON DEMAND


Giclee limited edition artist-signed prints in sizes that meet your personal needs and price range!

 

Giclee prints are now available of some of Elaine’s original acrylic and mixed media paintings. The beauty of prints is that you can get the image in essentially any desired size. Giclee prints can provide a fresh look for your home and office. 

Why prints, you ask?

 

        Because for more than 20 years, you and other collectors and patrons have asked for them. 

            As most of you know, I paint large-format paintings, typically 20 inches or more on a side. The reality is that they are frequently too large for many people's homes - people who longed to own them. One individual confided to me that she would like to have my painting "Mirror, Mirror" for her dressing room, her special place. The sticking point was that my original acrylic on canvas painting measures 24 inches wide by 36 inches tall. Much too big for her space. When I ran into her and told her I was looking into prints, she was ecstatic!

            Another issue some people have that I can relate to is the cost to purchase an original painting. Many individuals and families find an original artwork to be temporarily beyond their means even with custom layaway options. Yet, they love the artwork. I have seen the longing in your eyes and heard it in your requests. Finally, I took the leap this year. I am now slowly investing in having high-resolution images and am offering Prints On Demand. Contact me directly to place your order. Also - let me know if you see a painting for which you would like a print. If I do not have it available yet (i.e. many large paintings from my website or Instagram), your deposit will get the process started.

  

 My Art is Storytelling

And my artwork takes on new life when hanging in 

someone's home or office


I paint for and about life, so it stands to reason that my artwork takes on new life and meaning and voice when it lives among others, connecting to new lives. It is something like raising a child... As a parent, it is when our children run and fly on their own that we as parents find even greater joy in our creation. Connecting. Life is not meant to be lived in a vacuum. Nor is my art.

Here is a key question new collectors might ask:

 

"Are there significant quality differences between a giclee, a serigraph and a lithograph?"


  Fact: In terms of resolution, a giclee print has the highest resolution and color range. 


Giclee printmaking offers one of the highest degrees of accuracy and richness of color available in any reproductions technique. Giclee printmaking provides a luminosity and brilliance that represents the artist's original work better than any reproduction technique available today. 


A serigraph is created when paint is 'pushed' through a silkscreen onto paper or canvas. A different screen is used for each color in the print, and this results in a print with great color density and many qualities of the original piece in terms of color saturation. This process also adds some texture to the final product. 


A lithograph is the least manually intensive reproduction technique, and in turn, is not as expensive as a serigraph or giclee. Although images can have a high resolution, and excellent appearance, they will not have the same degree of resolution or color density as a serigraph or giclee.

Elaine Weiner-Reed - Artist Biography



https://www.elaineweinerreed.com/



ELAINE WEINER-REED

A Creative Life

 

    I invite you to watch and listen to my story at your leisure. 


 Patrons and Friends,

      I am grateful for your support of me and my Art throughout my lifetime. I hope you enjoy my story - as told by the master storytellers, Ashley Love and Bruce Nairn.

      In this video, I thank my sculpture professor Richard Blake of West Chester University, PA, who encouraged me to declare myself an Artist. I would like to also thank my current Anne Arundel Community College master artist and instructor, Wilfredo Valadares-Lara, who supports and encourages me in every Metal Art Fabrication class and helped me overcome my fear of power tools, a.k.a. the MIG Welder. 

      What helped this stubborn artist in my very early years, however, was a grade school teacher who gave me a "C" in Art because I did not "copy exactly." Thanks to that memory and moment and some intuitive voice in my head screaming to me "She is wrong!" I never gave up on Art or on myself. Since then, I heed my own Muse and only choose to COLOR OUTSIDE THE LINES. 

       My Irish Grandmother and my Aunt Lena were god-sends, one telling me stories and drawing with me, and the other sitting quietly with me for hours on end, teaching me to crochet, knit, and make mosaic bowls. These brave, talented women have my undying love and gratitude. They shared time with me in an era where "kids should be seen and not heard." It turns out, they listened to me down to my very soul...and nourished the artist within.

       As an Artist, I believe we owe it to ourselves, our Art, and the world to always stay true to our own vision.

"Art is my Voice. 

Sculpture amplifies my Voice. 

A Voice in the physical world 
is much harder 
to ignore."  - EWR


   As you hear my story, please keep in mind the people in your life who have a passion like mine. I ask you to support them and encourage them in their art... Who knows... At the very least, you are exhibiting great love for someone and honoring their vocation. At best, you could be witnessing the birth and flight of the next Picasso, Da Vinci, Brancusi, or Van Gogh.

    I am very honored to have had my story told by the extremely talented Ashley Love and Bruce Nairn of t2p.tv, Annapolis.

 

               Life is sweet and all too short. Savor your Journey! 

                                Yours in Art and Gratitude,
                                 Elaine

Elaine Weiner-Reed and Rogue Collective DC Collaboration: Resurrection






RESURRECTION

 

Celebrating Everyday Heroes

Art by Elaine Weiner-Reed

Music by Rogue Collective DC


Art Meets Music - LIVE | Storytelling in Art and Music

 

Structured improvisational duet by Rogue Collective DC inspired by
Elaine Weiner-Reed's sculpture "Resurrection" (pictured in video). RC
Violinists Alexa Cantalupo and Kaitlin Moreno's original music captured
the essence of the sculpture's depiction of what the artist refers to as
life's "everyday heroes" walking among us.

Elaine Weiner-Reed explains her sculptural homage to those she refers to as "Everyday Heroes" that walk among us: "We rise, tired, and sometimes broken, and only by sheer will, right  ourselves, even as it feels like our legs are made of stone and our  heart is broken or missing… At such times, only our spirit keeps us among the living. But we walk on. We cast shadows, leave traces… We are survivors. We are Phoenix Rising."




The genesis for this collaboration was Elaine Weiner-Reed's collaboration project called "Every Painting is a Song." Three Rogue Collective Musicians accepted Weiner-Reed's challenge, showing how "Every Artwork Is A Song." 

Elaine Weiner-Reed's "Masks and Mirrors: An Exploration of Identity" Solo Exhibition Series explores identity in all its facets, phases, trials, and tribulations. From one's first glimpse of self in the mirror to survival across time thanks to defense mechanisms with which we arm ourselves, this exhibition and series honors the journey, celebrates humanity, unravels relationships, and contemplates the Legacy of a life well-lived. Everyday heroes walk with and among us. Their lives inspire!

The solo exhibition of Elaine's work, "Masks and Mirrors - Explorations of Identity" was in the Chaney Gallery at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis, MD (May-July 2018).
