Q: "What is a Giclee (zhee-clay)?"
A: A Giclee is an individually produced, high-resolution, high-fidelity reproduction done on a special large format printer. Typically museum quality Giclees (like Mary's) are produced from digital scans of existing artwork and are designed to last at least 150 years under interior lighting conditions. Giclees create a whole new vibrant medium for art.
Q: "What is an artist's proof?"
