We now have 103 ART WORKS in the Living Room

There was a street fair today on Columbus Avenue ……….and ART HOUSE sat up a gallery.  It was love at first sight when I saw this painting………..and I just had to have it.  Resistance was futile.  Besides……. I like to support our local starving artists.

FASHION INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

The graduate students in the fashion department at F I T………2013 …….must create a runway show of their designs.  Sketches come first.  Off to MOOD for fabrics.  Patterns have to be cut out.  Fittings on a form.  And as Tim Gunn would say…….”EDIT EDIT EDIT”.  And these students have done that.
