Bringing Art to Life: From Postcard to Frame

We're excited to share with you a special project that beautifully blends art, history, and community empowerment. Longtime volunteer Sheila Nash spent years collecting an array of art-themed postcards, each offering a window into different worlds of art. These postcards are snippets of history, emotion, and beauty collected by Sheila with love and care.

When she decided to pass on her collection, she wanted it to go to people who would not only appreciate the collection but also use it to inspire more beauty. She knew Piece by Piece was where her postcards belonged.

Luz Mack, the Social Enterprise Lead at Piece by Piece, saw an opportunity in Sheila's generous donation. She envisioned using the postcards as a source of inspiration for our artists. Luz initiated a project, inviting the artists to create unique, handcrafted frames inspired by the art represented in the postcards.

The Piece by Piece artists embraced this project wholeheartedly. They thoughtfully created frames that are inspired by the art in each postcard. As part of the process, the Social Enterprise artists deepened their knowledge of art and the artists behind the works. It has been a fun and educational experience for them.

Each frame is more than just a holder for pictures; it's a piece of art in itself, infused with the spirit of the postcard that inspired it. These frames are special. Each one is a conversation starter, a piece of history, and a testament to the transformative power of art. They're perfect for anyone who loves unique, meaningful decor or for those looking to add a touch of artistic flair to their homes.

By purchasing one of these frames, you're doing more than just acquiring a beautiful piece of art. You're supporting a community of artists who are using their talents to transform their lives. You're part of a cycle of creativity and empowerment that goes beyond the ordinary.

Ready to own a piece of this artistic journey? These frames are available for sale on our website. Remember, each frame is unique, so once it's gone, it's gone. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of history and a symbol of transformation.

A big thank you to Sheila Nash for her generous donation, to Luz Mack for her creative idea, and most importantly, to the Piece by Piece artists who created these one-of-a-kind frames. They pour their hearts and souls into every piece they create.
