Last winter's snowpocalypse might be the last thing you want to revisit, but local artist Elizabeth Corkery makes a strong case for traveling back to a cooler time.

The woman behind Print Club Boston just debuted "Hollywood Hills," a new collection of limited-edition, silkscreened prints inspired by the work of Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri.

While these mountainous images might seem to depict some mammoth construct of nature, they're actually repurposed photos of snow mounds shot around Boston during the, shudder, polar vortex. (Corkery, a Sydney, Australia, native, clearly sees beauty where other more hardened individuals may not.)

Each vertical print costs $100, but in the spirit of artistic collaboration, Corkery holds aside a portion of each collection for a print swap. Shoot her a proposal for a good or service you can offer in lieu of money -- previous offers have included framing services and jewelry -- and you'll receive your print free of charge.
