Dog Power Salute

Another great moment in Doggie History inspired by...

The 1968 Olympics Black Power salute was a noted black power protest and one of the most overtly political statements[1] in the history of the modern Olympic Games. African American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos performed the Black power salute at the Olympic Stadium in Mexico City.

Kent Henrickson

Tom went to the Cleveland Print Show yesterday and spotted work by an amazing artist, Kent Henrickson. This is Judith Solodkin from SOLO Impression Inc - she's holding the print we purchased, The Children’s Fable I (Pink). It's a lithograph on pink linen with digital embroidery. I loved everything at their table. Seeing his work combined with Emily's workshop last week has got my mind spinning.

Emily Felderman workshop

(photo: Charla, Karen, Emily, me, Carole, Helen, and ???!!!)
Yesterday I spent the day with some delightful ladies. The Cleveland Museum of Art hosted a workshop by Emily Felderman, a local textile artist. Her technique involves the accumulation of hundreds of teeny, tiny stitches. I'll post a photo of my piece when it's a little further along.
