Calendar Girls: How Louisiana’s Mary Hackley figures into the story of fashion icon Ruth Finley | Entertainment/Life

Who knew that New York’s fashion world revolved around a small office on the sixth floor of a commercial/residential apartment building on Manhattan’s East 87th Street?

Louisiana native and LSU graduate Mary Myers Hackley did.

For 13 years, Hackley worked as the right arm, sometimes literally, for Ruth Finley, whose Fashion Calendar scheduled every fashion event in the city. If you wanted to host a runway show, beauty product launch, gallery opening, etc., at the top of your to-do list better be “Call Ruth.” And that included “Ralph, Oscar, Diane and Betsey,” fashion icon or newbie. If you didn’t know the drill, you quickly learned it.

The new documentary “Calendar Girl” (Amazon Prime Video, Apple+) shadows the petite yet powerful Finley, who founded and helmed her Fashion Calendar for more than 70 years. Hackley, now 47, was one of the 90-minute film’s associate producers.

From flowers to quilting to painting, Newport Art Museum has options to keep kids busy

As Newport County graciously thaws from an icy winter, the Museum is looking forward to hosting an artistically busy summer for residents and visitors alike!

On June 4, the Museum will host a free Community Day called Quilting Generations Together celebrating family in all its forms with a giant quilt-making project, collaborative weaving, workshops and storytelling. Adults and children who attend will get to see their work on display at the Museum as their individual contributions will be united to form one grand quilt. Wishing Weaving, another collaborative venture of the day, will invite patrons to decorate a strip of fabric that will symbolize wishes for the future of our community.

This summer, with a nod to the nineteenth-century French Impressionists, the Newport Art Museum is pleased to offer the opportunity to paint or draw en plein air.

Individuals with a love for reading and learning will not want to
