Lighting Advice: So, you want to display those Picasso reproductions or the watercolors you did in your class at the community center? Or you have a sculptor in the family who displays miniature Rodin-esque shapes on corner shelves and in cabinets? While recessed or track Juno lighting will illumine your illustrations, you'll need picture lighting fixtures.
House of Troy manufactures picture lights, including halogen lighting lamps, that showcase and complement a masterpiece. As for those corner shelves, invest in lighted ones such as InstaShelves. Kichler under-cabinet lighting will spread light upward through the glass. Place miniature halogen lights in curio cabinets that contain original artwork. With the right home lighting, everyone will see that you're not only an artist or an art collector, you're a lighting artist with a flair for display.
