Printmaking Techniques

Giclée
Giclée graphics are the result of a revolutionary computerized process. The French word, Giclée (pronounced "Zhee-clay"), describes this continuous tone reproduction method. This new medium is a blend of art and technology that achieves the intention of the artist more closely than any other means currently available.

Using data from the original painting gathered by a highly sensitive scanner, a state of the art graphics printer, called an iris printer, magnetizes, then sprays four million drops of a water-based inks per second onto a spinning drum that holds the paper or canvas. These environmentally safe inks are applied in droplets the size of a human blood cell with a computer controlled accuracy that is unsurpassed in the art world. After numerous proofs are personally worked on by the artist and printmaker, protective waterproofing and ultra-violet coatings are applied to the final version. The finished piece is a perfect representation of the artist's thoughts, translated digitally.

One of the keys to the success of this kind of print is the system's versatility. With computer control of the inkjets, over 16 million gradations of color are possible. The image can be infinitely adjusted by the artist until it matches the original. This adjustability provides the power to reproduce original work more closely than any other non-offset method of graphic printing, with the advantage of perfectly identical copies.

Barnstable Brown Gala

While The Barnstable-Brown Gala is one of the Premier Derby Eve Parties
in Louisville, Kentucky, it is much more than just a “great party” !  Held at the
Barnstable-Brown Mansion, this Star Studded Black Tie Event, is a fundraiser
for Diabetes and Obesity Research.  

Tricia Barnstable-Brown and her late husband Dr. David Brown created the
Barnstable-Brown Foundation.  All the proceeds from this Annual Gala go to
this Foundation to support research.

Jeff Williams was invited to accompany his 2009 Kentucky Derby Original
Paintings to this year’s Gala.  It was a grand event and wonderful to see so
many people turn out for such a worthy cause.  The guests really enjoyed
meeting Jeff and having the opportunity to see the actual Derby Originals.
In fact, one of the guests purchased the Derby Original that night.  Jeff was
delighted to donate a portion of that sale to The Barnstable-Brown Foundation.

To see photos from the 2009 Barnstable-Brown Gala go to Event Photos.
