May Window Display and Artist of the Month - Saundra Stavis Bohl

Local artist, Saundra Stavis Bohl will display selected works in our windows and on our walls during May 2019 in an exhibit entitled FansiFun Fiber Fantasies.

“My love of fabric started at the side of my beloved and creative designer dad, Michael Stavis, and blossomed after the death of my beloved and artistic son, Jonathan David Bohl. To honor them, as well as my loved brilliant, musical, well-traveled daughter, Jenny, and son, Michael, I have dabbled in the art form of fiber for the past 20 years. Initially, my business, Chuppahs To Cherish, was focused on creating wedding canopies meaningful to the bride and groom that incorporated fabrics from both families to make a covering used at the union and then as a work of art in their home. I became interested in expressing my own voice through fiber when I was commissioned by synagogues and individuals to create many other kinds of pieces.

Because I travel so much, I’ve had a wonderful opportunity to develop an unusual and abundant stash of fabric, which I now have fun using in a variety of designs.  I’m originally from New York City, a mathematics and piano performance major from Oberlin College, a Masters in Education from John Carroll University, and have been teaching and performing regional, classical, and flamenco Spanish Dance for the past 40 years. My life is as eclectic as my art!”

Get to Know Appletree: Jane Rothstein

Jane is our lead sales person on week days at the store.

Three things (+one) I do when I’m not at Appletree (or reading):
I manage the archives at The Temple-Tifereth Israel, I knit, and I practice yoga.  I am also slightly obsessed with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Three books I like:
This month, I’m recommending three recent, non-superhero graphic novels.

Incognegro: Renaissance (Berger Books), written by Mat Johnson, illustrated by Warren Pleece: A genius murder mystery about intellectual theft, passing, and African-American life in Harlem in the 1920s.

My Brother’s Husband, Vols. 1 & 2 (Pantheon), by Gengoroh Tagame: With the visit of Mike, his deceased twin brother’s Canadian husband, Yaichi, the stay-at-home father of an adorable daughter, works to overcome his assumptions about homosexuality, as well as other aspects of Japanese family life.

Sabrina (Drawn & Quarterly), by Nick Drnaso: The first graphic novel to be longlisted for Britain’s prestigious Man Booker Prize, this is a wrenching story about love, death, family, media, and conspiracy theories in American life.

Never Judge A Book By Its Movie

This summer, Appletree will host a series of discussion for the literate movie lover!
