The Fine Art of Concealing a Home Theater
It's no secret that flat-screen televisions are flying off retailer's shelves and finding their way into living rooms, family rooms and media rooms across the country. But even before they're installed, many homeowners are looking for ways to hide them from view when not in use.
After all, a large slab of black glass mounted on the wall doesn't complement the décor of most rooms. And let's not overlook the Spouse Acceptance Factor that often dashes the hopes of many home theater enthusiasts.
Enter VisionArt Galleries.
Homeowners, interior decorators and art aficionados are turning to VisionArt Galleries as a fine-art solution to concealing everything from projections screens and recessed video projectors to home theater components and flat-screen televisions. VisionArt is found in residential installations, hotels, conference rooms and other commercial applications.
VisionArt Galleries designs and builds custom art frames appointed with museum-quality prints on a motorized canvas that raises and lowers to reveal a television, electronics or virtually anything you want to conceal. VisionArt is used to hide wall safes, library shelves and even wet bars. VisionArt products allow technology into areas of the home where it otherwise would not be welcomed or even tolerated.
The VisionArt System
The VisionArt system consists of a metal back-box, outfitted with a picture frame and a motorized assembly that raises and lowers the artwork. The back-box or housing can be surface mounted or recessed into a wall depending on the type of components to be covered. Each VisionArt model is custom made in almost any size and can be designed to conceal nearly anything.
There are more than 50 pre-finished VisionArt frames to choose from. Dozens more are hand made from the Ren Wicks Collection, and can be fabricated from hardwood or leather to suit the décor of any room.
There are three galleries of fine art from which to choose. The Premiere Gallerie offers more than 300 limited-edition fine art prints, with each signed and numbered by the artist. The Asian Gallerie, inspired by traditional Asian partition screens, includes an artist’s seal, and the Décor Gallerie, consisting of unlimited edition prints, ranges in style from modern to traditional. The homeowner can also provide a digital file of a family photo or other artwork for the canvas.
The artwork is printed on the canvas using the Giclee process, a French term for "fine spray." The digital process sprays special ink with 512 shades and more than 16 million gradations of color onto a 100-year-old archival canvas. According to VisionArt, the resulting print is superior in quality to a serigraph or lithograph.
