Product Description
The remarkable story of “outsider” artist Judith Scott, who was institutionalized for more than thirty years before being reunited with her sister

From birth, fraternal twins Judith and Joyce Scott lived as if they were one person in two bodies, understanding instinctively what the other wanted and felt, despite the fact that Judy had Down syndrome, profound deafness, and never learned to speak or sign. But this idyllic childhood of color, texture, and feeling ended abruptly when, at age seven, Judy was taken from their shared bed while Joyce slept, not knowing that the wholeness they had known was being shattered.

For the next three decades, Joyce is left without her other half and must grieve unexpected loss while navigating her relationship with an emotionally distant mother—alone. Even so, her life parallels her twin’s in surprising ways. While in college, Joyce too is sent away, pressured to relinquish the secret daughter she bore in hiding to adoption.

Decades later, Joyce resolves to reunite with her sister and fill their remaining years with joy. After overcoming legal hurdles to become Judy’s legal guardian, she enrolls her in an art center for adults with disabilities in Oakland, California. Judy is hesitant at first, but after two years of uninterested painting and drawing, her untapped creativity suddenly ignites when she is introduced to fiber art, and she begins carefully and intentionally winding yarn and other materials around combinations of found objects. With unflagging intensity, Judy works five days a week for the next eighteen years, producing more than two-hundred astoundingly diverse fiber sculptures. Unconcerned with her growing fame, she remains fully immersed in her artistic vision until her death in 2005. Today, Judith Scott’s work is displayed in museums and galleries around the world, in some of the most prestigious collections of contemporary art.

Entwined is a penetrating personal narrative that explores a complex world of disability, loss, reunion, and the resiliency of the human spirit. Part memoir, part biography, Entwined is a poignant and astonishing story about sisters finding their voices in each other’s love and through art.
Product Description
This fascinating and generously illustrated book offers an in-depth look at the art and life of Judith Scott, and accompanies the first major exhibition of her artworks in the U.S. Judith Scott’s story has become widely known: born with Down syndrome, and institutionalized for thirty years, before moving to the Bay Area to be near her twin sister, Scott had long-hidden artistic sensibilities that were first discovered at the visionary Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland. There, she developed an affinity for fiber and other found materials, creating remarkable and idiosyncratic objects—fastidiously assembled structures that radically challenge our attempts to define them as sculpture. In addition to illustrations of more than forty essential works, this volume includes a number of essays that trace Scott’s artistic development and her place within the field of contemporary art as a whole. A previously unpublished interview with Scott’s twin sister, Joyce, tells the story of how Judith’s move from relative isolation to a supportive and nurturing environment allowed an unexpected and extraordinary talent to emerge and flourish.

2014 Goodreads Reading Challenge

This year I did the Goodreads Reading Challenge. I set a goal for myself in January that I would read at least 30 [new] books. This was a really good thing for me because I have a "bad" habit of re-reading the same books over and over. Granted, I did do a bit of that this year, especially when I needed a break from some of the more intense books. I re-read the Fablehaven series (again. so good) and a few individual books that I've enjoyed before or wanted to refresh my memory. Some of my Goodreads friends set goals of 50 or more books and, a week or so out from the new year, they haven't yet neared that goal. On the other hand, one girl set a goal of 127 books and has read 125, so I guess anything is possible. I did do a book review post over the summer, so I'm not going to review those books here again. This book series is based on the story of Peter Pan. Only the 4th book takes place with Wendy and the Darlings, the story most are familiar with. I read the first book in the series last year because of the play that was released on Broadway (with Christian Borle. This book, the second in the series, was very good, and I gave it 4 stars. I know I've said this before, but I really love Brandon Mull's storytelling abilities. His Fablehaven series is one of my all-time favorites, and while the Beyonders series took place in an entirely fictional world, I still really sunk my teeth into it. The second book was just as enthralling as the first and I gave it four stars. I also recently re-read this book. The love story was captivating, but my favorite character was probably Gramps. I think one of things I liked most about this book was the description of a happy family - one where the kids and parents generally get along, and the kids don't always know better than the parents. I love Philippa Gregory's books, but I feel like they are starting to get a little repetitive. I understand it's historical fiction (which I like to read). Source: K. @ Life's an Adventure
