Open Editions

Ms. Axelrad's original fabric collages are "digitally scanned" with such care and attention that they capture the color, detail, texture ,and depth of the original sewn artwork. The prints are proofed by the artist, Merle Axelrad, and are printed from the same exceptional digital files as the "Limited Edition Prints". The only difference from the "Limited Editions" is that these prints tend to be smaller, and they are not signed or numbered - hence the term "Open Edition Prints". 

All prints are available on a number of different materials. After you select an image you can choose a material. Should you desire to receive your artwork ready to hang, you will then be offered options for that.
