About the Book
Civil rights, Vietnam, the right of labor to organize, the Gulf Wars, a woman's right to choose... for over fifty years I've marched to take a stand. While I saw my acts as patriotic, it was the opposition that wrapped itself in the flag. It should come as no surprise that I harbored a deep distrust of people making too much of a fuss over our flag. The catalyst for this book was a Flag Day Parade in Hudson NY, my new hometown. As the parade passed, thoughts turned to vivid memories of the flag, shared national experiences and long-held beliefs. Although the sounds of bagpipes, horns and drums filled the air, the song in my head was Bob Dylan's Chimes of Freedom
My creative interests include photography, book arts and word and image art. I make work related to visual memoir, the social landscape, and children. I teach classes related to these interests at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester MA and in Hudson NY at the Davis Orton Gallery and Hudson Opera House. My husband and I present contemporary photography of emerging, mid-career and estatablished artists and trade and artist-published photobooks at Davis Orton Gallery in Hudson, NY.
