Piece by Piece Mosaic Art Featured in Group Show at The James Gray Gallery

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to buy a piece of original art, knowing that it would not only look gorgeous in your house but also help someone in a meaningful and concrete way?  Piece by Piece is a nonprofit organization that sponsors mosaic art workshops free of charge for Los Angeles’ underserved communities in Skid Row and South Central Los Angeles.

You can preview and purchase the beautiful mosaic art of talented Piece by Piece artists at the James Gray Gallery‘s current group show, which also includes a diverse range of multimedia work by established artists Ellen King, Daina Falk, and Francesca Quintano.

The goal of Piece by Piece workshops is for participants to create saleable works of art under the tutelage of professional arts instructors, simultaneously enhancing self-esteem, artistic ability, and fostering entrepreneurship.  The rapidly growing organization was founded by the visionary Sophie Alpert after she had witnessed successful arts workshops for HIV positive women in South Africa.  She realized that providing skills training and raw materials to Los Angeles’ underserved communities could lead to the crucial first steps towards positive change.

You can help support Piece by Piece by purchasing one of the many beautiful works of art at the James Gray Gallery or by making a donation.

Piece by Piece artists are also available to create customized works of art, ranging from centerpieces for your next big corporate event, wedding, or bar mitzvah, to original pieces of furniture, mirrors, and stunning murals.  The options for commissions are endless and the end result is a great way to give back to the community.
