I was admiring some of my friend Kelly’s art at a cocktail party she hosted, and was surprised to hear her admit that some of the framed pieces I thought were pricey prints are actually just sheets of gift wrap. She found them at the Old Town stationery and gift shop, Greer, got some inexpensive white frames at a Hobby Lobby or a Michael’s or some store like that, and voilà—a clever, changeable gallery. Elum Designs “Winter Solstice” was my favorite, and it troubles me that someone would crease and tape it up to wrap a present. A sheet of the recycled, matte paper is 22 inches x 34 inches and will set you back four bucks. Clever, Kelly.
