Fine Art Print Installation Examples

I have posted a series of installation examples of my fine art prints on my website. These are installation examples from a private residence, the new Ritz Carlton Highlands at Lake Tahoe, and at the Truckee Rec Center where I installed a 10 foot high canvas wrap over the fireplace. The Ritz Carlton installation was coordinated by an art consultant specializing in hotel decor, and the other installations were coordinated by interior decorators. I have also worked with art buyers and art consultants who specialize in installations for casinos, health care facilities, and professional offices. I can custom size all my prints to fit a specific dimension, and specialize in printing on canvas and fine art papers using the large format  Epson 11880 printer. Recently I have been experimenting with LED lightbox installations that display fine art prints on Lexjet polyvinyl. I will do a blog post on this new display option soon.


The residential shots were taken by Ethan Rohloff Photography. Some of Olof Carmel's Photography is also included in the residential installation. I am collecting installation examples of my work from other venues - please email me any installation photos if you have one of my prints and would like to showcase it on my website. I keep all locations and collectors' names confidential.

New ElizabethCarmel.com Website!

I am pleased to announce my newly redesigned website with fully secure online shopping capability, easier image browsing, wish-list creation, gift registry, social network image sharing, image email capability, and many more features not available on my previous website. My new site is also fully compatible with the ipad and mobile phones. Please check it out at ElizabethCarmel.com.

To celebrate the launch of my new site we are offering 10% off all orders placed through the site for the month of September. Please click here for details.


My previous website was flash based and not very functional from an e-commece standpoint. I worked with Endo Creations to completely redo the site based on the Volusion e-commerce platform, which has been working well for the CarmelGallery.com website. 


Flash makes for a lovely website with large image display, but it can be difficult to make a good e-commerce site with flash, and I am concerned about the long-term viability of that platform with lack of flash support on the apple iphone and ipad. I will keep my flash site for people that enjoy browsing using that interface. My flash site is still accessible at http://flash.elizabethcarmel.com and from a link titled Flash Site under contact heading from my main site.


PLease take a moment to check out my new site and feel free to email or comment any feedback - we are still putting on the finishing touches.
