I thought I was done but I'm back with a few updates. Tonight at the UAB's Visual Arts Gallery there will be a catalog launch for Annie Butrus' installation Peach Tree Trail. For details or to request a copy of the catalog if you are out of town, call (205) 934-0815. The show officially closes June 5.
Something fun to look forward to is the complete launch of Irving and Fine online. I think many people know I'm a big fan of textile designers Lisa Fine and Carolina Irving, so it's probably not surprising that I'm thrilled about the new Web presence. Expect to see more peasant blouses, tunics, caftans and coats with the duo's signature globe-trotter flair. I've had a chance to see the wonderful hand embroidery up close and now I'm anxious for all the offerings to be up on the site.
A Mississippi native with a passion for Indian aesthetics, Lisa also designs embroidered headboards such as the one photographed by William Waldron for Elle Decor, June 2009. Interior design by Katie Ridder.
