Been super busy over here making and doing and showing and making and prepping (gasping inhale)… and not writing… but, I wanted to stop and let you know about up coming fun and things!
On top of that, we’ll be bombing! So if you’re a knitter, a crocheter, or just want to be, come and help us!! We’ll be beginning the bomb at the opening itself, and continuing through the month of the show and beyond.
I’ll post more details about stitch-ins, but for now I wanted to take the opportunity to say, “hooray!” and “Hello World.”
Lovely artist Jennifer Korsen, a co-resident at the Hive, is having a solo show this weekend of her paper hearts! They’re fab, and I was lucky enough to do a little colab with her (I can’t wait to see what she’s done, I love collaborating)!
Here’s what Jennifer says about the show:
“The symbol of the heart is powerful and vital, it is relatable across cultures and has been used to portray love, connection, and strength since ancient times. The heartbeat is the first sign of life in utero and the last sign that we check for post mortem. The heart is strong both physically and metaphorically. The heart endures. The heart is everything.
Please join me for a private opening of my solo show at Coba Gallery in Downtown LA just in time for Valentines Day! The show will be featuring my paper hearts series that I have been working on obsessively for the past 2 and a half years. Lots of new work as well as the full series of shadowboxes, and some incredible collaborations from some amazing artists I am lucky enough to know including Hollis Hart, Ellen Shinderman, Free Humanity, Jose Castillo and more!”
I’ll be there celebrating Ms Korsen; come toast her with me!
As I mentioned yesterday, I’m in two shows that open Saturday night, the aforementioned Cthulhu show at The Hive, and a show called Interviews at Curio Studio and Collection over in Venice! I’m very excited and honored to be included in this show. Curated by Daniel Rolnik (LA’s most adorable art critic), it’s all works by artists he’s interviewed (here’s mine). There’s some terrific work in the show and it should be a really fun evening.
Saturday night’s opening of Home is Where the Needle Marks was a fabulously good time. The art looked fabulous, the jazz band was cool, and the guests were hot! Many thanks to all who came out and made the night so memorable. For those who couldn’t make it down the gallery is open Tues-Sun 1-7 (ish), the show is up until July 16th, and I’ll be there much of that time to tell you about the arts! Come visit me!!
And now, the photos! Art…
Last night was so so much fun! Thanks to all who came out. Here’s some photos of the art, the room, the nice peoples…
Holy cow!! How did today get to be today already?? I”ve been so busy prepping and doing that all of a sudden it’s crept up on me. Tonight is the first opening of Home is Where the Needle Marks and I’m so so proud and so pleased! The work looks amazing, we yarn bombed outside the space yesterday, and I can’t wait for this evening.
I do hope, if you’re in LA, you’ll join us tonight!
Holy cow! It’s less than two weeks until the first opening of Home is Where the Needle Marks, my curatorial debut! The time, she is flying!! This is what all the stitching and hustle has been leading to of late.
In conjunction with Pop tART gallery, I have put together a fab show, Home is Where the Needle Marks. It’s a fantastic group of stitched artwork on the theme of “home.” In fact, so much wonderful work was submitted that we decided to split the show into two shows, in two spaces, with two openings! The first is Saturday June 9th, and the second Saturday June 16th.
Last weekend was wonderful! I had my opening at The Hive, my aunt came to town, two pieces sold in pre-sale, and many people that I just adore came down to say hi and show support. Really, it’s a bit of a blur. I remember saying hello to people, hugging them, then saying good bye to them and that I wish I’d had more time to chat. I spent a lot of time watching people interact with my work, which just slays me. People walk up look, double take, giggle, call their friends over, giggle.. it gives me great joy.
Here’s a few photos:
