Art in Alabama

For the month of October, the works of a 92-year-old artist are being publicly exhibited for the first time at LAAC (Lower Alabama Arts Coalition) in Andalusia, Alabama. The artist is Ethel Kipnes, the mother of famous fashion designer Vicky Tiel. This is of particular interest because Kipnes was born and raised here in Hudson.

Thanks to Serge De Vatedski for bringing this to Gossips' attention.


  1. Ethel Kipnes..Is that her married name or maiden name? I am curious to know if my family knew her when she was in Hudson...

    1. Kipnes is her maiden name. Her family owned Kipnes Bottling Works.
