Holy wow, time, she sure do fly! This Sunday is the final day of Home is Where the Needle Marks, and we’re having a closing reception on Friday eve at Pop tART. If you haven’t made it out to see the show, please come by. We have a jazz band and wine and the weather is just lovely in the courtyard.
Then, Saturday, I’m so pleased and proud to be showing at the Bleicher Gallery on La Brea, in their show 21st Century Sex! I’ve really pushed myself with the new piece and I’m so excited with where the work is going!
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…
Setting up the second half of the show has been amazing. We have the larger, more conceptual pieces at the gallery and watching the artists set up their works – so different from what I do – has been sensational and inspiring.
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.
Here we go! This weekend is the first of the Yarn Bombing events leading up to the openings of Home is Where the Needle Marks, the two part show I’m curating in June! So much fun, so much work!
Lion Brand has donated 200 skeins of yarn and giant needles and hooks for us to work with. And I have different sized needles and random yarn around… So, if you knit, or crochet, or just like big public art projects and want to learn a bit, please come join us, this Saturday, May 19th, to begin stitching bits to later be installed around (sub)Urban Home and Pop tART Gallery!
Details: Saturday May 19 from 2-5pm at Pop tART Gallery, 3023 W. 6th St. Los Angeles, CA 90020.
And we’ll be doing it again Wed eve, May 23 5-8pm, and Saturday June 2 from 2-5.
Please join us. Invite your friends. Bring your favorite needles. Bring your joy! Hope to see you stitching soon!
At long last, decisions have been made, and it was tough. We received many wonderful submissions. So many, in fact, that we are having two shows!! The first is the original, planned show at (sub)Urban home on Main Street @ 5th, downtown on the LA artwalk, on June 9th. Then, the following Saturday, June 16th, the companion show will open in the Gallery space – which we had not planned on using – on West 6th St. @ Virgil!! Very very exciting!
With no further ado, the artists: Bren Ahearn, Sarah Terry, Iviva Olenick , Suvi Aarnio, Ruth Tabancay, Brian Schetzsle, Penny Mateer, Joy Ude, Rebecca Ringquist, Sarah Corbett, Yu Cotton-well, Alaina Varrone, Xiang Gao, Ashley Blalock, Kathy Halper, Robert Marbury, Joetta Maue, Julie Jackson, Bascome Hogue, Ben Cuevas, Luke Haynes, Drucilla Pettibone, Tod Hensley, Erin Daniels Endicott, Mark Bieraugel
I am so excited!! This is going to be a fabulous happening!!
First off thanks to everyone who submitted their work to Home is Where the Needle Marks. I am overwhelmed by the caliber of stitching out there; you are all amazing. Next, please bear with me while decisions are made. We only have so much space and received a ton of great work; we are slowly making decisions and will have the selections made by early April, promise!
