Pine Street Art Works Show

August 3rd, 2006

Hi, Katie here. Alison and her pal Phranc are teaming up for a joint show called “Paper Play” at Pine Street Art Works. You can look at the brief descriptions of Alison’s and Phranc’s works on the Pine Street Site. The show starts September 8th.
The show exhibits Alison’s recent project of large, freehand drawings of people and other creatures. Alison describes this project as her chance to momentarily transcend the small boxes that bound much of her work. Phranc’s project transforms mild-mannered pieces of paper into objects such as shoes and shirts. Alison and Phranc combine their media to create life-size people drawn by Alison who wear paper clothing created by Phranc. In addition to that, Alison will present some DTWOF originals and artwork from Fun Home. Here’s a sneak-peek:


If you’re in the area, don’t miss this chance to see Alison and Phranc break out of their usual mediums!

Home and Garden

August 3rd, 2006

There’s a story about Fun Home in today’s New York Times Home and Garden section. I drove to my home town a couple weeks ago to meet Ginia Bellafante, the reporter, at the house I spent my childhood dusting. The place is on the market, and a lot of my dad’s decorating is still intact.
