📸👗🥻 👠👡👒 HI DARLINGS! AS YOU KNOW TALKING ABOUT CECIL BEATON ALWAYS MEANS TO DISCOVER SOMETHING SUBLIME IN ART AND FASHION.

A nice figure drawing session on Sunday afternoon with multiple costume changes. The theme was Cecil Beaton which rang a bell in my head and caused me to open a sketchbook from 2012. I found two sketches I did of a couple of his works while in the Museum of the City of New York.

Hi ! My dear wonderful followers and visitors ! Thanks always.
I’m fine but I feel a little overwork recently.
I take several weeks holiday.

These drawings are based on the work of P. Sato, an artist I respect.

The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) was awarded the Global Fine Art Awards’ (GFAA) Best Design Exhibition, for its first fashion-focused exhibition, Guo Pei: Chinese Art and Couture. The exquisite showcase, which spotlighted art through couture in a juxtaposition of masterpieces created centuries apart, emerged on top against internationally renowned institutions, with Denver Art Museum and the Dallas Museum of Art’s Dior: From Paris to the World (USA) attaining an Honorable Mention in the same category. Other notable institutions in the running included the Victoria and Albert Museum (UK), and Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum (Spain).

Held in New York, the GFAA is the first annual award to recognise the world’s best curated art and design exhibitions and installations, and honours innovation and excellence in exhibition design, historical context, educational value and public appeal. This sixth edition saw exhibitions nominated across six continents, 27 countries and 74 cities. The Asian Civilisations Museum…

The Meeting

🧵👥 💕 SO TRUE DARLINGS! SOMETIMES SEWING MEANS SKETCHING IN OUR MIND. THE MEETING IS A TOPIC SO SUITABLE FOR THESE SPECIAL DAYS.

Arts of May

I finished this wool felt wall hanging this week. I worked on it slowly over a month and a half or two months and it was a struggle at times. I sewed and resewed after ripping out stitches that I felt could be improved. I went through many emotions while working that are sometimes part of the process of making art. These included despair as well as enjoyment. Thankfully, I saw the appliqué through to completion and am ready to move on to further work.

Princess Blue Holly vs Etamilc Egnahc

🎸 📸 WELL SUGARS! TODAY WE’VE GOT FUNNY SKETCHES, MORE FASHION, GORGEOUS PHOTOGRAPHS AND A BIT OF GOOD ROCK & ROLL.

Art Gowns

It was a very serious situation!

The moment Rene Rosso felt Rebecca Budd’s estranged & frantic energy, she instinctively morphed into Princess Blue Holly.

Princess Blue Holly looked into her Tangle-Heart. The signal was weak.

Her Tangle-Heart managed to connect via the moon to a magic orb from Dale’s Peach tree.

It led Blue Holly to a wind farm outside of Chicago. It was here she found the Art Gowns Models planted firmly into the good earth.

She also found the tornado that had captured them. It was Etamilc Egnahc.  Poor thing had once been Blue Holly’s friend; a gentle, soothing summer breeze. Then climate change turned her into a PBH nemesis.

“Blue Holly, welcome to my Art Gowns Models Plantation! Seems whenever the Art Gowns Models are in jeopardy, you come to the rescue. Well, you’re too late! They’re already growing roots, and once they go to seed…

Textile Protest, Alt-Reality Animation, Nature Dreams: MOLAA by da-AL

🎨🧶🧵 WELL BEAUTIES, SINCE EXISTS THE PAINTING ON CANVAS, ART AND TEXTILE MOUNTINGS ARE SIBLINGS.

Happiness Between Tails by da-AL

The Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, California, is a great way to spend a rainy day with visiting family!

What a delight to visit MOLAA with Angela!

On display were arpilleras — textiles sewn by the women of MEMCh (Movement for the Emancipation of the Chilean Woman) to protest the 17-year-long fascist regime of Agosto Pinochet. The dictator seized control of Chile with the backing of United States President Nixon in 1973 and further support of later U.S. President Bush’s family. (More about the exhibition here)…

Bullets rain down on seekers of justice in Chile…

Women had to be creative to get word out about the killings…

“Children search trash cans for bread.” “Not everyone has running water.”

Books are burned…

All are forced to worship the dictator…

Dreams, politics, and beauty merge in the art of Argentine artist Matias Duville

Transcendent and political art by Argentine artist Matias Duville…

Award-winning
