My husband was teaching and I was home leisurely perusing the Sunday Globe. I turned the page in the magazine section to a spread of fashion photos and immediately recognized one of the dresses as one I'd seen in the Bead + Fiber show this past May. My eyes drifted to the top of the page and I realized I was looking at one of my jackets that had been in that show! As I recuperated from my shock, I realized that the layout included not one, but two of my jackets. There was no attribution for the creators of any of the clothing pictured, but as you can see, I've fixed that in my version - well at least for my work. The jackets in the top row, center and far right are mine.
This was especially exciting for two reasons. First, I had no idea that this was going to happen. But more than that, it could have so easily gone right past me without my ever knowing. We don't get the Globe ourselves, our neighbors pass theirs along to us when they are finished with it. Often we get several days of papers at once, so if I'm busy I just glance at a few sections or sometimes just put it right into the recycling bin. I guess I'd better start paying attention, especially since this is the second time within a month that my (our) work has been featured in the Globe.
On Sunday August 29, the kimono that Sonja and I made was pictured in the Globe North section. The title of the article had nothing to do with our kimono and you had to read carefully through the article to find the short bit about the show here at The Loading Dock Gallery that it's in. Still the kimono was clearly attributed to us and it looked great even in black and white in the printed papers.
With all this, I'm working on Cloud 9 somewhere...
