[BKARTS] Pressman's caps Photographed

To friends far and wide-
This morning Lynn Padwe photographed your Pressman's Caps at The Williams 
Residence of the Salvation Army in NYC. Each senior model selected the cap that 
they felt best suited them and posed
with great animation and glee in front of a colorful backdrop. The room was 
full of laughter as they primped and prepared to be photographed.

One woman posed elegantly with her ivory headed cane and cap made from the 
financial pages of the NY Times lined with fake fur (Fran Kaufman, artist). 
Another made a silly face while wearing a cap made from the funnies, curled 
ribbons and jingle bells (Mimi Weisbond, artist). A resident who said she'd never 
had an opportunity to be a bride looked quite pleased to be wearing a veiled 
bridal cap made from the wedding announcements pages (Ann Grasso, artist).  A 
Chinese Wedding cap adorned with Origami birds and coined ribbons was 
dramatically worn by a "former Thespian" (Shu-Ju Wang, artist).   
Ninety year old Elizabeth Blackert looked stunning in a hat collaged with 
marblized papers and colorful beaded leather ribbons (Yehuda Miklaf, artist). The 
morning was a wonderful experience for everyone who participated.

Lynn's portraits and the caps will be shown at New York Public Library-The 
Donnell Library Center from September 25 to October 15, 2004.

Thanks for sending your caps. Though there isn't another photo opportunity, 
I'm happy to accept more caps for the exhibition.
