From art lessons to the latest in our repurposed-quilt obsession, a handful of things we spotted and liked this week:
- Our picks for Mother’s Day and the women in your life, here.
- A new collection of rugs, inspired by the women of the Bauhaus movement.
- Julie’s favorite painter, the Cape Cod-based artist Rob Dutoit, is giving an online art history lesson on nature in painting via the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill on Tuesday, May 18th from 10 a.m. – noon. (Spot some of Rob’s work in Julie’s Brooklyn Heights flat.)
- Margot let us know about the writer, artist, and ceramicist Edmund de Waal’s new book, Letters to Camondo—a series of imaginary letters to the 19th-century art collector whose home became the Musée Nissim de Camondo in Paris—to be released on May 11th.
- Object of desire: totes made from vintage quilts.
- And over on Gardenista: ‘nuance and unplanned fun’ in a favorite landscape architect’s Echo Park garden.
