Title

Oral history interview with Diane Gabriel

Description

Diane Gabriel describes growing up in a Jewish neighborhood in the Bronx, and deciding to become an artist at a young age, of studying art at the Art Students League of New York, and of family resistance to her study of art in college, forcing her to switch her degree to fashion design. She speaks of living in Brooklyn, the drug scene, and going to the Village, of her eventual move to Fayston, Vermont, her marriage, the birth of her son, her divorce, and her involvement in arts and crafts in Vermont, particularly the development of her business in soft sculpture.
