Finding Reasonably Priced Art for Big Sky, Mt Interior Design

 

Inspiration comes in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Being an Interior Designer in Big

Sky, MT I have to be versatile and fit all styles and budgets. Art becomes a very

interesting part of the budget. People want color, style and images that make a house

warm and inviting and show what they love and who they are. The problem is that close

to half the houses I interior decorate are used as vacation rental. This means that people

do not like to spend a great deal on high dollar art that could be subject to

traffic and potential wear.

 

This started my quest for finding good art at reasonable prices. My husband and I use to

own The Odee Company which is a printer and promotional product company in Dallas,

Tx. We sold to two long time employees and a friend. They have been very successful

and one of the areas they expanded into was wide format printing. One thing led to

another and they partnered with two artists and launched Canvaskick.com. Wide format

has become very accepted for art and Canvaskick does giclees that the artist can hand

sign. The giclee can have a resin finish added that makes it appear to be encased in

glass. Cost is around $650 for the giclee and the resin finish is extra. The originals go

for $6000 and up. So, this is an inexpensive way to have great color and art.

 

Canvaskick started with Carolyn Joe and Dara Burriss and have added Matt Jones

Photography(great trout pictures), Dustin Doskocil Photography, Felix Art Studios and

Walter Eduardo Soza. There supposedly are more artists and works from present artists

to soon be added. It has developed enough of a following that it has been featured on

Cassie Freeman’s,  Hi Sugarplum webpage  and has participated in her

One Room Challenge. I heard Cassie was in Big Sky for her sister’s wedding. I would

have loved to shown her some of my projects and some Dallas hospitality! Maybe next

time! My husband could have shown her a Montana ranch for sale on a pretty river!

I have used Canvaskick and Odee for both the giclees, as well as, other prints. They

turn them quickly. As an Interior Designer, we know everything happens yesterday.

Being a Big Sky Interior Designer with people wanting 2nd homes perfect for family and

friends really means yesterday. Canvaskick says two weeks to turn the art but I

would urge you to call. They have turned things for me in a crunch in very short order

and are great to work with, so always call Travis. I also would like to add, their shipping

is bulletproof. They ship nationwide. So, they custom build the box and the art is bubble

wrapped extremely well.

Next time you have a project that needs some reasonable art options consider wide

format and look up Canvaskick. Great way to add color and style!

Another favorite of ours is Venture West Ranches where you can find your dream Montana ranch for sale with wildlife, water and views! They specialize in Eastern Montana Ranches. In fact, they are starting to do Eastern Montana Ranches Estate Planning Seminars. There first one is January 18th.
