Russell Cleversley has been part of the Western New York arts scene for some four decades. In 1972, his artistic interests began to surface when he accepted a position doing art reproduction work for a local company. As his knowledge of the art industry expanded, his own artistic talents emerged. And today, the well-known artist is also the proud owner of Russell’s Atelier, an artist services center and art gallery located at 10 Center Road in West Seneca.
A unique business that appeals to the creative, Russell’s Atelier offers a wide variety of professional-quality services as well as a spacious gallery, opened in July 2012, featuring many examples of his freehand digital fine art. The “Pixel Artisan” is recognized as a premier digital artist who paints highly detailed and convincing images. His works are realistic, diverse and appeal to a broad spectrum of art admirers around the world. Many of his works are signed limited editions.
Upon entering the building located at the much-traveled intersection of Center Road and Seneca Street, first-time visitors are sure to be surprised by the size of the main gallery and the many examples of Cleversley’s eye-catching work. But beyond the gallery walls and hidden from sight is an impressive art services facility that caters to both artisans and art lovers alike.
In fact, Cleversley takes great pride in his professional art reproduction services. He has a well-equipped digital studio where artwork is photographed; he then meticulously edits and proofs the digital files to ensure a near perfect match to the original artwork before producing the museum-quality giclée art prints.
Cleversley also provides a variety of other artistic services, including high-resolution scanning, professional matting and framing, image editing, mounting, laminating and commercial printing. Russell recently installed a Xerox digital printer to provide small-run print orders. His goal is to provide a complete host of vital artist services.
