It's been truly amazing to see the interest in the "Celebrate Wearable Art II" runway show that we/seARTS and the Wearable Arts group held last September. Speaking as an artist, it's very satisfying to share locally made art in new ways that engages such a wide range of creative minds. The editors of Art New England took a unique point of view on Wearable Art outside the Urban Center – played out in two parts, the first of which showcasing work from my collection as well as a dress made of pasta. Yes, seaglass and pasta both indigenous to Gloucester! Cape Ann Magazine tied our show to revenue – a great idea to make money while doing all this hard work in the creative sector. And finally, the Gloucester Times published my entire "thank you" letter to the behind the scenes team.
I was also thrilled to have one of my favorite pieces shown in Art New England – so here it is again!
