You need a subscription to the New Yorker to read the full article, but Patricia Marx’s ‘Made in the USA‘ gave some great promotion to Etsy. She mentions several shops by name with products.
And…for those of you who couldn’t make the opening last night for the ‘Contemporary Voices’ exhibit at the Woodmere Art Museum in Chestnut Hill, it was packed solid! 100 artists curated by Sam Gilliam, with patrons from all over Philadelphia and NJ. A great turn-out, I’m hoping there will be a followup review. I had my piece, Azalea and Forsythia in the show. I met Edward Loper, the venerable 93 year old Wilmington born painter who still teaches art classes.
Doris Richards on the right, is an old friend of my mother’s. She came out from Princeton for the opening, I hadn’t seen her in almost 40 years! Once a costumer designer who worked on Madison Avenue, Doris is still a wicked ice-skater.
