86 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 12.16 ARTS 3 X 2 Artists as critics 1 1 2 3 2 MY METHOD Tiffany Woodard's home near Preston Highway doubles as her studio. The whimsical designer shares space with her partner Ryan, whose film studio is on the first floor, and her two kids, Oliver and Penelope, whose canvas is anywhere and everywhere. "I don't have a designated space within our house, which means the whole house becomes a studio during creati ve explorations," Woodard says. Sewing machines in one room, fabric in another. "The dining room table usually has a bit of all our projects on it." Woodard designs clothing, costumes, accessories and home décor l ike flowing dream catchers and wall hangings. (She did all the female costumes for the Louisville Ballet's re- cent production of Swan Lake.) During the first part of the year, she mostly makes nature-in- spired Derby fascinators out of moss, feathers, sticks and whatever else she can find. "I love junk pickup," she says, referring to the three weeks a year the city allows residents to put unwanted items on the curb. "It's one my favorite times of the year." While working, she likes to listen to podcasts and music with a "strong female perspective" — Jenny Lewis, Ingrid Michaelson, She & Him, Beyoncé. "I lock the project in my brain," Woodard says, "and then approach every part of every day through the context of that project." — Kaঞe Molck Listen to the song "Flawless Bosses" from the latest Girls Rock Louisville album. Thoughts? Read the first page of the book Alpine Apprentice, by Sarah Gorham. Would you continue reading? (First sentence: "The modern carry- on, with multidirectional wheels and retractable handle, is decades away.") Watch the trailer for the second season of the WGN America show Outsiders, which is set in Appalachia and is popular in the Louisville market. Would you watch the show? Sarah Lyon is a photographer who has recently started teaching basic auto-care workshops. Look for more this spring. "I love the simplicity of this extremely catchy song. I really appreciate the artists' high sense of self-worth conveyed through their lyrics. Girls Rock Louisville is an absolute gem and everyone involved with its production should win a medal. I have to admit, my first association with the title 'Flawless Bosses' was the pronunciation challenge of 'The Rural Juror' from 30 Rock." "Initially I was drawn in by Sarah's unique second-person point of view. I want to know where she is going, and why for so long? And why isn't she taking her collection of trolls?!?" "Watching the trailer for the second season of Outsiders makes me wonder why I haven't watched the first season yet." Ma Anthony is the owner of Matt Anthony's Record Shop (2354 Frankfort Ave.) and a 91.9 WFPK host. He's one half of the Derby City Soul Club (with DJ Kim Sorise), which is celebrating its Louisville Music Award for Best Live DJ and three-year anniversary at Meta on Saturday, Jan. 21. "I'm a big fan of Girls Rock Louisville and their work. Letting youth follow their own muses with knowledgeable mentors is so important to the future of art. The beat's hot too, by the way." "I was intrigued by Sarah's writing. The rhythm hooked me in immediately. The foreboding mystery of the words and scene would keep me turning the page. Poetic, modern writing. This is my style of prose." "The bad accents threw me off immediately. There are several dialects going on, none correct for Appalachia. I get over the Brits doing Georgia accents in Walking Dead, so I can get over it if the story's tight enough. White people fighting white people over American land rights seems pretty ironic in the age of the Dakota pipeline struggle, though."
