Transnational Ikat: An Asian Textile On The Move, Susan Rogers, Hana Carey, Patricia Giglio, Martha Walters

Exhibit Catalogs

Throughout the twentieth century, women have utilized magazines as a means of obtaining information concerning nearly every aspect of their lives. In the early 1900s, women read articles pertaining to society news and viewed illustrations of the latest fashions in publications catering to upper and middle-class consumers (Farrell-Beck & Parsons, 2007).

The Art And Bohemian Character Of Ethel Wallace, Michael Mamp, Mary Lynn Damhorst

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Yet, by her death, Wallace and her work had fallen from the public eye. Despite her artistic achievements and innovation of technique, her story has been written out of the history books.
