Vanilla Beane

I had the great pleasure of viewing Benjamin Ferris’s paintings of 100 year old DC milliner, Vanilla Beane, and her hats yesterday at Gallery Neptune Brown. I am truly sorry that I missed the Opening which I hear was spectacular! The exhibit ends this Sunday so get down there quickly if you’d like to enjoy them. I was told that self taught Ms. Beane attributes her longevity to her continued work at what she loves. What more motivation do we need to have fun and make hats?

Don’t forget to sign up for the Holiday Halo Hat class at Gallery Clarendon on November 9 if you want to get in on this longevity thing.
