When Inspiration Meets an Apron
Posted by Plish on March 18, 2012
I was at the Chicago Flower and Garden Show the other day. The theme was “Hort Couture”; a stimulating mix of fashion and flowers/gardening.
One exhibit was called, “Aprons: Myth, Memory, Fantasy in the Kitchen.” The artists on display represented the Women’s Journeys in Fiber project. Among many of the fascinating aprons, one in particular, done by Janette Gerber, caught my eye. I put together the below video so you could see and read her journey through the creative process. The text in the video is hers, and it gives some context to the work.
