What Did I Buy?

Now that I’m back in procrastination mode, I thought I would spend some time listing things I bought while I was in New York.

1. Twenty-two different polka-dot fabrics at B&J Fabrics. Plus two batiks and a Japanese ikat.

2. Several art books:

  • Christo and Jeanne-Claude by Jacob Baal-Teshuva
  • Raw Vision: Outsider Art Sourcebook
  • A book about Howard Finster 1916-2001
  • Artists & Prints: Masterworks from the MOMA
  • Ruth Duckworth: Modernist Sculptor

3. Technically I also bought these in NY, but I actually I looked at them at the museum and then went back to the hotel room and ordered them to be shipped to my house because I was tired of dragging books and fabric all over the place:

  • Tim Hawkinson, catalog from the Whitney
  • Red Grooms, The Graphic Work

4. Original art from the Art-O-Mat machine in the basement of the Whitney. It reads Contents: One original, all natural drawing by temperamental illustrator, Ashley Holt, shredded beyond recognition with a toy surprise.

5. A warm hat at the American Folk Art Museum. Necessary for walking around Central Park in freezing February.

  1. Hi there,

    I just found your blog here by looking for polka-dot patterns (you showed up on Google’s image search). Just wanted to say “Hi” and tell you that I love what I’ve read so far. It could just be the mutual polka-dot obsession though. 😉

    I’ll be back.
