Fine Art and Fine Dining

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Marsha Tudor, is an accomplished artist who needed her artwork to be imaged onto canvas and stretched for her reception and display at Il Barone Ristorante.  Il Barone works closely with TKOart to display fresh art every three months to enhance the environment to their customers. TKOart asked Michele Preston of to provide a series of canvas pieces ranging in size from 24″×24″ to 48″×48″. took the files we received from the artist and printed sample images for approval.  Then, each canvas print was laminated and put onto stretcher bars ready for installation at the restaurant.

Marsha’s artwork will be available for sale from the restaurant for three months and can be purchased after from 

The fine art canvas pieces were installed on February 20th meeting a very tight deadline.  We encourage you to go and check out the fine food and gorgeous display of artwork at Il Barone Ristorante located at 4251 Martingale Way, Newport Beach, Ca.

Fine dining and fine art… A perfect match…

Long Distance Relationship

KnowledgeByte Main Image

Our client, Art Directions, Inc. located in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, has been working with their healthcare client for a while and knows they like mounted prints behind plexiglass for their public areas. Photomation helps them achieve their goals by making their prints and then face-mounting them to plexiglass.

“We started with the small animal prints for pediatrics,” says Susan D’Arienzo, owner of Art Directions. “Taking the idea further, we cut a circle from an abstract poster and had Photomation make a round plexi sample for us that was cut in 2 pieces. Our client liked the sample and selected a circular art print to be made in two halves as shown. The finished piece is unique and resembles a much more expensive wall sculpture.”

“Going further with the concept, we wanted to turn poster art into a 3-dimensional installation, mixing abstract and representational works. This offered the client a cost-effective, one-of-a-kind installation. The art works well with the lighting and really enhances the space.”

Photomation is proud of the long distance relationship we have with our client, Art Directions, Inc.
