Simultaneously folksy and postmodern, Stacey Page updates the family album with an old-fashioned twist.  Eschewing Photoshop for hand embroidery, Page stitches the designs of what could pass for Halloween costumes onto a set of black-and-white photographs, each one of them bearing an Apple-Pie name.  C’mon everybody! Meet the clan!  The Georgia artist sells these mocked-up family keepsakes at her Etsy store, and keeps a website, where you can see more of the variety of her work including sculpture,  here.
