Featured Artist Showcase: MKC Photography by Michelle Ciarlo-Hayes
Each 5" x 5" x 3/4" square art block is created using salvaged wood, reclaimed library book pages, original photography, and digital collage techniques. These stunning works of art transport you to ethereal new worlds with enchanting scenery.

Handmade by Michelle from her archival art prints, reclaimed wood, and vintage book paper, she seals each block with multiple layers of non-toxic matte varnish and signs them on the reverse. All blocks come with a keyhole opening in the back for ease of hanging. The 3/4 inch thickness allows the block to stand on its own on a shelf for even more display versatility!

What wonders await beyond the horizon? Each art block holds new worlds to be explored, new places to see, and sometimes a bit of nostalgia.

Speaking of nostalgia, this piece is a staff favorite. Anyone remember the 1956 film, The Red Balloon by Albert Lamorisse? 🎈😭
