The next time you visit the Plaza Cinema Café, you can see the original mixed-media works of Alison Krafick, which combines the glamour of Hollywood with the sassiness of the starlets themselves. Showcasing vintage movie pin-up artwork from some of the greatest movies of all time, Alison’s whimsical collection is sure to make you smile . . . and perhaps even laugh out loud.
Below is Alison’s Biographical sketch and artist’s statement . . .
My artist story started way before I was even born. When my Mom was a young girl she and her friends would save up some money and go to the magazine store. They would come home and her friends would cut out all the pretty movie starlets and use them as dolls in their doll houses. My Mom never cut hers but would sit on the floor carefully looking through the magazines that she loved. She knew it was time to go when her friend’s magazines were nothing but shredded paper and they started eyeing her “girls”. From the time I was little and knew of the magazines in boxes, I always begged to take them out and look through them which my Mom let me do often. I grew up and guess I sort of “stole” these magazines from my Mom. Wanting to get them out of their boxes, I decided to turn them into new art for people to enjoy who otherwise might never have known some of these girls. Pairing my girls with words to make you laugh is always my goal. Continuing with what I started as a little girl, I always sign my art Love Alison.
