this morning i was flipping through a book i bought last year called Innovation in Pattern and Print at The Fabric Workshop. i went to Philadelphia to check out the workshop/museum (dedicated to textile printing! i was so excited) but it was a big disappointment. mostly empty and deserted… it was very bizarre. it seemed like they were under construction or partially closed down– i couldn’t figure it out. but there was a small shop and i bought the book and this postcard, i had forgotten about the postcard until I just found it tucked inside the book. the artist is Laura Owens and the piece is hand embroidered and silkscreen printed on silk.

  1. Lena, you might want to do a title search on Amazon for “Laura Owens.” There a book currently available about her artist in residence stay at the Isabellaw Stewart Gardner museum, and I think you’d like it. I think the picture on the postcard is featured in the book.
