Leader in Fine Art Lighting

Art Lighting

Established in 1940, WENDELIGHTING® has set the standard of excellence for fine art accent lighting.  WENDEL® light optical contour framing projectors grace the world’s premier residences, galleries, hotels, and museums with elegant artistic lighting.

Wendelighting offers a wide selection of Recessed Art Lighting and Surface Mount Art Lighting product options for highlighting fine art, paintings and sculptural focal points. Our controlled lighting for any size painting will deliver a stunning look to any collection, transforming the art from simply nice to a look at, to a one-of-a-kind masterpiece as originally perceived by the artist.

The Principals are third generation Owners of Wendelighting, and operate the business together with fourth generation family members.  They are world renowned art lighting specialists!  That is why curators, designers and collectors repeatedly choose Wendel for their technical expertise, lighting design artistry, and trust their ability to showcase valuable investments.

Wendel projectors use a light mask to frame light to a shape focused by optical lenses.  WENDELIGHTING projectors use field cut light mask plates that can provide separate light beams from one projector to illuminate several objects of any shape.  The standard WENLUX® projector uses field adjusted shutters to easily form a rectilinear shaped light beam.

Art illuminated by Wendel comes to life!  A shaped focused light border makes art pop as if lit from behind, while the shaped light from a feathered border softly blends art into architecture with the simple addition of an accessory Fade In Lens.  All Wendel projectors can utilize both focus options and switch between the two at any point. The look is your choice!
