Another great show this weekend, The Official Bad Robot Art Experience at Gallery1988 (the one west of La Brea), opening Friday night. I was there today dropping off my piece and the stuff I saw was terrific! Lots of Lost, lots of Trek, lots of JJ Abrams madness!
And here’s a sneak peek of my piece, “Live Long and Cross Stitch.” (24″x24″)
That’s right, it’s finally upon us, the opening night of Stitch Fetish!!! It looks great!! Here’s a peak at the entrance to the show:
In prep for the show, last week I did an episode of my pal Todd’s videocast, Film Pigs! Which I can’t seem to embed and I have too much to do to argue with WordPress right now, so you can watch that HERE. I have to say, it made me laugh.
And, if I didn’t have enough going on, my super talented new space mate at the Hive, Sarah Ockuly, and I re-did our space, repainted, blah blah blah. I think it looks great! Much prefer this to the previous gray walls.
Okay, off to run errands and such and hope to see you all this evening!
Well, it’s here, Crazy4Cult: NYC!! It’s going to be a mad house, so if there’s a nightmare at the door, call/text/fb message me, and I’ll do what I can. Hope to see you all this eve! Yay!
I cannot believe it’s August! Where is 2012 going? So much time, so little to do – wait, strike that, reverse it…
This year Gallery1988 will be holding its annual tribute to film in NYC, and I will be there in the show!
Very much looking forward to coming home for a couple weeks and having a chance for East Coast pallies to see my work in person. The opening is next Thursday night, August 9th, from 6-10, in the Meatpacking District (ah, my childhood stomping grounds); the art will be up until September 1st.
If you can’t get to New York, here’s a sneak peak of my piece. She still needs mounting and framing, but the stitching is done, and that’s the real work. It’s another over-sized cross-stitch; I’ve pushed my stitches a bit larger this time (want to keep upping the size, interested to see when the image disintegrates), so unframed it’s 24″ square. The piece is called “A Staunch Character,” and is my (very loving) tribute to Little Edie Bouvier Beale.
Happy August everybody!
Or good afternoon or morning wherever or whenever you read this…
Where does the time go? I mean to write, really I do, but so much goes on! I’m gearing up for my first featured solo artist show, it opens next month, May 5 (less than a month to go)! So, I’m madly stitching away… That is when I’m not gearing up for my curatorial debut in June! It’s been a really fun, very educational experience, curating. I’ve met some amazing artists, seen some terrific work, and, inevitably, had to disappoint some lovely people, but the positive has far out weighed the negative. I can’t wait for you all to see!
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I have a piece in a group show that opens this Friday, the 13th (thunder clap, owl hoot) at Gallery1988:Venice – Suspense and Gallows Humor: A Tribute to the All Time Greatest. A bunch of the usual suspects pay tribute to Alfred Hitchcock. Mine is a tribute to Psycho.
If you’re in LA this weekend come by, have a drink, say hi, and see some art.
Shows a’plenty! Next up a tribute to Pee Wee Herman at Gallery1988 Venice next Friday, July 29th! Be there or be a trapezoid!
Banged out another quick piece for Is This Thing On… A Bluth Family Tree Pillow.
So many Works in Progress over here, it’s a little overwhelming. Keep making lists, crossing things off, adding things, and yet I’m still stitching, stitching, stitching. Thought I’d share some, though nothing’s complete.
The big exciting news is that I’m being included in Hoopla, the new book by Leanne Prain, out next fall. This is her follow up to Yarn Bombing, an awesome book about guerilla knitting and yarn graffiti. Hoopla focuses on non-traditional embroidery work. I’m not allowed to show you what I’m making, as there will be a pattern in the book (yes, I have to figure out how to write a pattern) and she’d like it to be brandy new. I am allowed to show non-specific sneaky-peakies though, so here’s one:
