Patricia Medvecky: An Exhibit of Watercolors

Patricia Medvecky has always had more than a casual interest in the arts, including great works but as life began to wind down, she decided to try creating some of her own. You will find that most of her paintings are centered around flowers. She chose watercolor as her primary medium because she loves the freshness, spontaneity, and delicate luminous color which is ideal for flower painting. Watercolors allows her to “capture the delicacy, sturdiness, and sheer beauty of one of nature’s most exquisite subjects”.

Patricia Medvecky lives in Salisbury, CT. She has a master’s degree from Hunter College in Education.

Booby-Trapped: the Bra in America

In a 2014 survey of 3,000 women, 92 percent rated their bra, “An enemy. I wish I had never met her.” Before the bra was invented, corsets lifted breasts to artificial heights—but they pushed from below instead of lifting from above. In 1913, using two pocket handkerchiefs and some pink ribbon, socialite Mary Phelps Jacob created the “backless brassiere,” and became the first patent recipient for the modern bra. From Jacob’s invention, to the bullet bra of the 40s, to modern-day pillow cup push-up plunge bras, our boobs have been cinched, flattened down, and lifted up.

You can discover a lot about women in history by how much cleavage was showing, and the era’s most desirable breast shape. While it can be argued that a bra is a necessity—­­not an accessory—one of the best feelings at the end of the day is to release ourselves. One thing’s for certain: the American Woman is still waiting for her ideal brassiere!

Join Ehris and Velya for an uplifting look at the history of the bra in America!
