Artist, designer, and educator Ethel Brown Camhi died on October 22, 2011. She taught Patternmaking and Fashion Design at FIT for 33 years. She also practiced and taught the art of collage. Now (through May 13), 65 of her works are on view at the Art League of Long Island.
Hue is no collage expert, but Camhi’s look surreal, whimsical, and reminiscent of bygone days. The Art League is selling them for $80 to $200, a bargain as original art goes, and perhaps an even greater steal for those who harbor fond memories of their former professor.
