Lots of Thanks and Giving

   Blog Category: News

Thanksgiving is on our doorstep and we can smell the stuffing from here! We want to embrace the spirit and share our thanks and appreciation with everyone who’s supported us this year.

 

We’ve been thrilled to receive loads of wonderful feedback, sell many prints and participate in some very special events over the past few weeks. November especially has been quite a month for us.

 

First, SLPS founder Casey Kelbaugh invited us to help sponsor the annual Slideluck Fundraiser. It was a super hip event with many collectors, gallery owners, artists and just all around cool people. Our artists Julian Wolkenstein, James Knight-Smith, Michael SchlegelMichael HallGeoffrey H. Short and Joe Baran donated prints. All our prints sold well and the proceeds went to support SLPS and the Slideluck Youth Initiative. Thank you to Casey, producer Carly Planker and our participating artists.

Next, our director Zack Seckler was invited to speak on the BIG TALK panel, a sold out symposium celebrating the launch of the esteemed American Photography 27 and American Illustration 30 competitions. Thank you to Persia Tatar and Richard Kelly plus fellow panelists Jeff Newelt and Alex Johnson.

 

Then, just last week, we were invited to support the wonderful charity Pencils of Promise. It was a glamorous, star-studded event that included celeb guests Justin Bieber, Shaq, Usher and many more. Joe Baran donated one of his “Visitors” prints which was bid on more times then we could count and helped contribute to raising more then a million bucks in one night for PoP! Thank you to Lindsey Wilner, Susie Typher and Kate Shulte for including us as a small part of a very big evening.

Lastly, thank you to everyone who has written about us, written to us, purchased our prints and helped spread the word about the birth of our very new enterprise.

 

We’ve got lots of wonderful new artwork to introduce you to in the coming weeks and months so stay tuned. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!


We’ve Been Framed

   Blog Category: News

We thought it would be helpful for visitors like you to see what our prints look like framed. So we’ve done exactly that! All of the artwork on Lux Archive now comes with two views: the art by itself, and the art in a simple white frame. Visit our shop for a closer look.

 

Shapes, sizes, and colors of frames are endless (!) but we hope this triggers your imagination for framing one of our beautiful prints in your home.

 

See our Do’s and Don’ts for Displaying Art for a great tips about framing fine photography and stay tuned to the blog for more informative articles in the coming weeks. Frames are for example only, we only sell fine art prints. Check Yelp for great framers in your area!

Welcome!

   Blog Category: News

We created Lux Archive for one reason: to make it easy for you to buy fine art photography. Whoever you are, a seasoned collector or an art lover looking for their first great piece, you’ve come to the right place.

 

We’ve hand selected the best images from established photographers around the globe and have made those images available with prices starting as low as a hundred bucks. Each museum quality print comes with a certificate of authenticity individually signed by the artist. We sell only limited edition prints — guaranteeing that you own a unique piece of art.

 

You may not like everything but we’re sure you’ll like something. Our mantra for curating photography is: good looks and an engaging personality. It’s got to look good — or what’s the point of having it up on your wall? And it’s got to engage the viewer. Lot’s of people can take a pretty picture but few can take images that also generate a response. That response is what art is all about. If it doesn’t move you, don’t move with it.

 

Did we mention that we’ve got good karma? The majority of our proceeds are given to the artists who create these works. So when you buy art from Lux Archive you’re directly supporting artists. That’s a good feeling now isn’t it?

 

One could spend a lifetime sorting through all the artwork in the world. Let us make that our life’s work. We’ll bring our best finds straight to your inbox. So sign up for email updates and join us on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the know about the new art we introduce each week.

 

**Be sure to check this blog often for exclusive interviews with everyone from museum curators to interior designers and of course artists! Our goal is to make this blog a valuable resource for anyone interested in collecting fine art photography.**
