COMMUNION opened Saturday, April 18, with a shared meal and a wonderful discussion about art and fashion among Jon Coffelt, Carolyn G. Halliday, Kathleen Richert and Betsy Dollar.
Issues of identity and the stories we tell with our clothes were discussed.
I love the shadows cast by the little clothes!
Jon told the individual stories of many of the hand stitched clothes...like the story of Marlee; the story of the prom dress; the story of Ruth Bernhard's memorial to Stonewall; the story of Matushka's mastectomy dress designed by Versace; The soldier PJs that memorialized the "last camping trip." And so many more.
