HOW WILL MY ORDER ARRIVE?
Each custom printed or vintage limited-edition piece is hand stamped and numbered, placed in a protective covering, and gift-wrapped. Each print arrives with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Whether you are investing in a piece for yourself or a gift for someone else, we are dedicated to providing our collectors with a unique and memorable experience – one that is inspired by the special and emotional quality of the artwork itself.
HOW WILL I KNOW THE ARTWORK IS AUTHENTIC?
Your new print will arrive with a variety of authenticating elements inherent to the piece itself. Elements such as certification numbers, signature stamping, subtle embossments, and watermarks – all standing to affirm the print’s legitimacy. You will also receive a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the owner of The Christy Collection, guaranteeing that you are collecting a genuine Christy Edwards work of art.
WHICH PRINTS ARE LIMITED EDITION?
‘The Christy Collection’ is the original collector’s edition print run from 1983 consisting of eight watercolor paintings of Fire Island scenes, 1000 prints created of each. While many have sold over the years, a group was set aside and preserved. These are the prints that remain today.
Having been printed in 1983, the print may (or may not) include special characteristics inherent to the printing techniques at the time and subtle inclusions such as paper or brush fibers and fine bits of paint. We believe these tiny details not only add to the piece’s authentic quality and genuine beauty but also act as a testament to valuable parts of the individual piece’s story.
WHICH ARE THE SEASONAL PRINTS?
All prints aside from the eight limited edition prints (‘The Christy Collection’) and ‘Montauk Lighthouse’ (coming soon) are open edition prints, meaning there is no determinate number of prints created. These pieces are available for a limited-time-only, making them rare in their own right. Every three months a new seasonal collection will be released and the previous season’s curation will return to the archive indefinitely.
These seasonal, limited-time release pieces are custom printed to order using the giclée technique, on archival paper.
In honor of our established collectors and new-found patrons alike, we believe it is important to preserve the rare nature of art itself. Releasing small, curated selections seasonally, we are able to thoughtfully pay tribute to each piece of work, all the while preserving the time-honored tradition of exclusivity within art creation and collecting.
WHEN WILL NEW COLLECTIONS BE RELEASED?
Our limited-time, seasonal collections will release as follows:
Spring | March
Summer | June
Fall | September
Winter | December
WHAT MATERIALS DO YOU USE?
All seasonal prints are crafted using the highest quality giclée inks and techniques on matte, archival paper. Each piece is matted using museum-quality, archival cotton matboard, which is both 100% acid-free and lignin-free.
