Modern Acrylic Prints
Like aluminum, acrylic prints are in high demand due to their modern minimalist look and high gloss finish. Acrylic prints have a 3D quality that other print technologies cannot match. These prints are made by face mounting a giclée or metallic print to 1/8 inch cast acrylic using an ultra clear adhesive and then backing both with an inflexible Sintra mounting board. Acrylic prints are high gloss and are best hung in an area that does not receive direct sunlight. Acrylic prints should only be cleaned with an acrylic cleaner, or with water and a mild detergent. Cleaners containing ammonia or chlorine such as Windex or other glass cleaners should not be used.
About Bill Belvin
Bill is a Sedona based fine arts photographer specializing in creating richly detailed images of the American Southwest wilderness. He loves capturing the patterns and symmetries present in sandstone and sharing the results with others.
Bill has traveled extensively throughout the United States and abroad, and has backpacked in the northwest and Alaska. He is a graduate of both Outward Bound and the National Outdoor Leadership School and is comfortable hiking both on and off-trail and at night. This comfort level allows him to photograph subjects in difficult to reach places and at night.
Bill is largely self-taught in art and photography, but has had valuable training in composition from Joseph Lange, Mollie Isaacs, and Mary Lindhjem, and in Photoshop from Tom Till and Jon Fuller. Bill is a juried artist at the Sedona Arts Center. He has also exhibited at the Great Neck, Sedona, Prescott, and Cottonwood Libraries, and received First Place awards in the Sedona Arts Center 2015 and 2017 Juried Shows. In 2015 Bill and his wife Elaine had a “solo” exhibit at the Village of Oak Creek Library. Bill has been published in Shutterbug magazine and in SPAN, the journal of the Natural Arch and Bridge Society. Bill also has five images in Laurent Martres well known book “Photographing the Southwest Vol. 2 – Arizona (3rd Edition”, including one on the back cover.
