The decade that roared out Jazz and decadence is back in full fashion. From the recent premiere of Baz Luhrnann’s remake of The Great Gatsby to its overflow into fashion trends (Prada and Brooks Brothers made the costumes for the movie), the 1920’s got a reboot of its own at Something in Mind for its recent showing of paintings by Laura Bochet. The artist attended a 1920’s themed party last year and got her inspired to render the women that evoked the period. Working with a limited palette of black, white and emphasis of red that it produced this series. Last March 10th, AF came to the opening as champagne bottles were popped and luscious chocolate covered strawberries were served endlessly. Everyone came in their best Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan persona joined by curious off the street walk ins as everyone partied and kicked up to Charleston their way to a great time. Great art and a roaring party scene did not die off with the flappers. It still thrives in 2013 and well beyond the era of the Victorola!
