Carrie Mae Weems

We've got some interesting neighbors upstate whom are part of changing the world we live in. Visual artist Carrie Mae Weems is the first African American to ever have a retrospective at the Guggenheim — and that was in 2014! We're so proud to feature Carrie in UPSTATE DIARY! Check our her story in UPSTATE DIARY, available at Tender Land Home. xoxo, Kate

I finally had a chance to visit Dave at his lovely store! What I have learned through Upstate Diary is that we are all part of a community that are richer and more rewarding then we could ever have imagined. Loved meeting you Dave, looking forward to visit soon again! X Kate
