My AWESOME printmaking teacher, Laura Stickney, presents her illustrated epic poem about the inter-continental flight of aviator, Amelia Earhart, as well as etchings depicting early American quilts paired with historical women’s faces (see above) at the In Tandem exhibition, now until March 9, 2012 at the El Camino Art Gallery, located in Torrance, CA. 

In tandem with her partner, Vilma Mendillo, they combine efforts to produce elegant accordion-folded books by Stickney presented in beautifully crafted boxes designed and built by Mendillo.  

Movie Club: It Happened One Night

My friends and I decided to start a movie club so we can all get together every few weeks to watch a movie (preferably something none of us have seen), make some food, and enjoy one another's company. Because we're suckers for romantic comedies, we decided on It Happened One Night. It's an extremely beautiful film that captures the cultural and historical significance of the 1930s. I highly recommend it!
