From Cat Walk to Craft Show

There is not a better way to get your head into place for one of your most important shows of the year, The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, than to be in the company of a great designer at one of his most import shows of his life time, John Paul Gaultier, at The Brooklyn Museum.

Oh I wish I had that French accent and exuberance!

It pushed us forward.

Slideshow  of the show

Note the teddy bear. At age 7, Jean Paul made his first cone bra for his bear. Madonna was next!

It was the beginning!

The Hudson Valley Arts Festival, a new event, this weekend.

What a great time of the year to head upstate to Rhinebeck, NY, to soak in the beauty of the area, and the arts from fine craft, to film, to music, plus great food. I am bringing lots of shearlings; capes, jackets and coats. New this year?  Lots of styles for petite sizes.

“The Watershed Post” sums up whats going on:

The “Hudson Valley Arts Festival” at Rhinebeck, held at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, will be a celebration of artistic expression with a main focus on craft, visual art and music. In addition to 200 of America’s top artists and craftspeople, the festival will highlight the exciting art, culture and food of the Hudson Valley; a line-up of exceptional live music including The Jay Collins Band, the Lindsey Webster Band, Myles Mancuso, CKS,  Mambo Kikongo; live art projects; children’s art activities; docent guided tours; craft demonstrations; book signings and more. Artrider is collaborating with Hudson Valley Tourism, the Dutchess County Arts Council, The Woodstock Film Festival, Chronogram, Hudson Valley Restaurant Week and local Chambers of Commerce with the intention of making this event the center of an Annual Arts Weekend for the pleasure of area residents and tourists.
