Last Week to See enveloppes du corps by Lorene Bourgeois

Before I begin my posts about my art and fashion adventures in New York, I'd like to highlight a must-see show of exquisitely rendered drawings by Lorene Bourgeois that will be closing at the Glendon Gallery in Toronto on Saturday, December 12.

In her show enveloppes du corps, Lorene Bourgeois explores cloth as a second skin in that it "accompanies us from birth to death; we are surrounded in it and we are shrouded in it." To read more, check out Yael Brotman's review on the Loop Gallery Blog here
