There are many ways that Artists offer themselves to the world. Original pieces, Open Editions, Limited Editions, Castings, ect... all are valid. Here is a quick break down on what I offer. Not everything will be available all the time, so if you are looking for a specific piece represented in a specific way it may still be available yet not listed on the site. An example of this would be you may have seen a piece while visiting a friend and you are curious if there are any more available.
Let's start at the beginning. Original pieces are where all other representations spring from. They are the birth of the new piece. Painters, Sculptures, Photographers (especially those using alternative methods) to name a few all create originals. Originals are often the most expensive as there is only one.
An open edition print is a print that is not limited to or restricted in the number and possible sizes that are available. Open Edition prints are often printed as demand rises and shipped unsigned. Check out the Nooks & Crannies Collection for Open Edition prints available.
What is REady to hang?
Ready to Hang is pretty much what it sounds like, when you unbox your art it is ready to hang as soon as you are. At the moment the only Ready to Hang Open Edition pieces that I offer are Metallic and Acrylic prints. As you go through the option, choosing your medium, then size if more than one is offered, you will then be brought to a selection on framing/hanging to choose from. Currently Framing is not an option for the Fine Art Prints, it's coming though! I have to be patient, I'm so excite for this to happen.
A Limited Edition Print means that there is a limited number of prints available. The artist has only allowed a certain number of prints of this image to be printed, which is called the edition size. Each print will be identical in terms of quality and size. The artist signs them, normally in pencil and numbers them. If the edition, that's the number of prints available, is 25, then the artist will number each print in order from 1 to 25. The numbering is shown as 1/25, 2/25 etc. or 1 of 25 ect. Limited Editions have a long history that until the invention of modern printing, the press plates or wooden blocks were typically destroyed once the print run was complete.
An Artist's Proof or AP is kind of what it sounds like. These are finished prints that belong to the Artist and included in the total print edition. Often time Artist’s Proofs are made for either the Artist’s personal collection or to give as gifts, some are also offered for sale. These prints are of the same quality as the Limited Editions, they are just reserved for other purposes. APs are always signed and signified as such. Sometimes they might be offered in a different size or substrate but are more often than not the same as the Limited Editions.
Pieces such as Limited Editions or Artist's Proofs can and do sell out. When a piece is sold the website will reflect currently number of available editions.
