Following my appearance on my favorite television show, CBS Sunday Morning, I received a call from The Grace Museum in Abilene, TX, about engaging my exhibit, Apron Chronicles. That was two years ago, and tomorrow we’re leaving for the exhibit’s opening! I am so excited. I love love love traveling to the exhibit’s venues and assisting with the opening events.
The exhibit will be at The Grace through December, however, if you’re anywhere within striking distance of Abilene, please try to come over while I’m there (Sunday-Wednesday). The exhibit is the most wonderful juxtaposition of fabric, storytelling and photography – to see it is truly a lifechanging experience.
A selection of aprons is framed and travels with the exhibit – framed because they are works of art, so rare as to be irreplaceable or treasures on loan. This clothespin apron is one of those that is framed. It was given to me by Ronnie Crawford. His story is about his mother, and like all the stories in the exhibit, Ronnie’s shares an experience that we recognize as a part of life.
