Terms and Conditions
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my artwork. The following information hopefully answers the most common questions I get asked. Also please find important information about my shop polices, printing, framing, shipping, and refunds. If you have additional questions, please email me: email@example.com.
The information in this document refers to art purchased directly from my website at michaelprovenza.com. Because my fine art reproductions are printed on demand, the art could take up to 2-3 weeks to deliver.
Taxes will be applied to the cost of the art during checkout. Shipping/packaging costs will also be added to the price for deliveries in the United States during checkout. Currently, art is only sold online for shipments in the U.S. including Hawaii and Alaska. Please contact us (or one of our galleries) if you would like to purchase art that will need to be shipped outside of the U.S. We will send a separate link to pay usig one of our accepted payment methods (see below). Artwork prices are subject to change at any time, but not after a purchase has been processed via the website.
Payments are processed with Braintree, a platform that delivers PayPal, Venmo (in the US), credit and debit cards, and popular digital wallets like Apple Pay and Google Pay.
Payment is only accepted through the michaelprovenza.com website or through a special link we provide. Checks and money orders are not accepted.
Your contact and payment information entered into the michaelprovenza.com website is secure, protected and never shared. Your address and contact information are stored in order to process your shipment. More here.
Printing & Materials
A selection of my original art is captured and printed on beautiful canvas and/or metal using museum-quality inks and materials, produced in limited quantities as well as open editions. My fine art prints are never digitally retouched.
Giclee fine art prints on canvas are created using solvent inks and premium exhibition canvas for the highest quality image detail, depth of color, and brilliance. Solvent inks vs. die based inks are used for the best weather resistance. There is no extra coating because the canvas is already glossy.
Giclee fine art prints on paper are created on premium art paper, utilizing professional imaging equipment to yield unmatched quality with remarkable detail, color saturation and depth of image.
Metal prints are created using a dye-sublimation process that combines fine art printing, high tech materials and intense heat to produce a vibrant print dyed into the surface of a piece of aluminum. The finished process is timeless as well as modern and lightweight for easy hanging in any environment. The metal has a white gloss so the image pops from the high gloss surface of the metal with unrivaled vibrancy and power. Print on metal should be properly handled to avoid scratching or denting. Prints on metal do work well in environments where humidity and exposure to moisture is a concern.
The giclee prints are offered unframed (shipped in a tube or flat depending on size), gallery wrapped with the image mirrored on the sides or wood framed with or without a white linen liner. The hanging wire and hardware are supplied for gallery wrapped and framed prints.
The metal prints are offered two ways, without a frame/mount or with a matte black 1.5 aluminum frame backing (already adhered) which gives it a premium gallery finish. The hanging bracket is supplied with the back frame option. If ordered without a back-frame, the metal art will need to be framed in order to hang.
How do I buy an original?
I create as many original oil paintings as possible and release them to galleries listed on my website. If you discovered my art in a gallery, please check back with them to purchase my art. Authorized galleries have access to all of my art regardless of where it’s on exhibit, as long as it’s still available. New releases are usually advertised beforehand via social media (Instagram: mjprovenza | Facebook: michael.provenza.artist | Pinterest: michael-provenza-art). Even better, subscribe to my email list from the contact page!

Refunds and Exchanges

Simply contact us with a correct address. If you ordered a wrong size or format, simply contact us and we’ll arrange an item exchange if the artwork hasn’t been printed already.
Due to the nature of my artwork, all orders are non-refundable upon receipt of the order. By ordering and submitting payment, you agree to these terms. If items are damaged in transit, an insurance claim will be filed to recoup the costs of the piece(s) and they will be replaced. For items canceled within 12 hours of purchase, a shop credit will be issued, less 15% restock charge.
