I have been so terrible trying to keep track of who is coming to visit our show "Artists in the Kitchen: FRAGMENTS 2010" that I decided to post the details on my blog.
I will be there all day Saturday May 22nd
315 West 39th St- Studio 1205
I wanted to invite you guys to the reception from 4:30 - 6 pm.
After 6 we are going to go to a bar in the area for some drinks.
In addition to the work on the walls, Sherry will be creating an interactive fabric sculpture that people can get into and experience with all their senses. A film by Conor Duffy will be projected on the fabric. The show and accompanying performances and public interactions will be filmed by Artur Adeszko.
PS. If you cannot make it on Saturday the show is from Saturday - Sunday from 12 - 6 pm.

I love Tree and Kimball's etsy shop and now she has a blog. (and a wonderful vintage shop as well)
The lady behind it all is an ex apparel designer and now makes wonderful necklaces out of lace.
Follow her! http://treeandkimball.blogspot.com/2010/05/look-at-miss-ohio.html

Since I've been starting to bike every weekend (a pleasant alternative to going to the gym) I've decided to crack down and finally buy a decent bike.
What did I purchase? Here it is:
How does one ride a bike in dresses and heels? (I don't always come equipped with bike shorts and sneakers)
I did some research and put together a guide so you can ride that bike in anything you darn well please.
The Story with Heels:
Well, I don't have an answer to this one, but riding a bike in heels is a lot easier than walking in heels.
The Story with Skirts:
Simplest solution: I find I can quickly adjust my skirt by standing up on the pedals – it’s quick, requires no hands and is a fairly practiced moved from my childhood racing up and down the neighborhood streets. Try it – not only does it work, after awhile you will find you naturally do it to adjust the line of your skirt.
Pin it down:
With shorter A-line skirts I have found pinning a piece of the skirt (or tucking it under) to a headband worn around the thigh like a garter belt to be helpful. (my headbands are actually cut from old tights so they fit perfectly!).
Protect yourself and your skirt:
If you are going to wear a long skirt get a skirt guard installed on your bike or make one if your local shop doesn’t carry them.
Easiest way is to sport some spandex under the dress.
Happy riding! <3>
