Yesterday I got an email from Anita Holman Knox who is the curator for "Wrapped In The Feelings: The Story Coat Exhibition" at the TCC South Carillon Gallery in Fort Worth, TX. Anita sent me some images from the show and below are coats by Barbara McCraw (left), and Henry Leonard (right), and Vicki Meek (below center). From what I see of these they are just awesome. I look forward to seeing more from the other artists, Anita Holman Knox, Liani Foster, Jacqui Dorsey, Sammie Nicely and Aundra McCoy. At the very bottom is my one of my coats (Over The Rainbow). If you are in Forth Worth, TX or will be visiting do go and see the exhibition it will run until November 6, 2008.
