A treasure trove of eclectic vintage art is proving too tempting to resist for budding artophiles, thanks to a unique show curated by the staff of WildCard, located on Butler Street in Lawrenceville.

“I just always kind of collected artwork and thrifted stuff, and I thought, ‘What if we did something as a benefit?'” said owner Rebecca Morris.

“Thrifted” consists entirely of vintage scores from thrift stores, flea markets, estate sales and yards sales that are all up for grabs. “It's a mixed medium,” explained Morris of the goodies that include everything from cross-stitchings and paintings to 3-D wall art.

All of the proceeds benefit the MGR-Youth Empowerment Program, which works with and mentors students in Lawrenceville and around Pittsburgh to create art in middle schools and around the local community.

“Thrifted” runs through Sept. 6.
