This Saturday afternoon, February 27th, is the final day of Stitch Fetish 4 at the Hive Gallery (open 1-6, Wed-Sat). Not only is it your last day to come downtown and see the show in person, we’re having a panel discussion on Gender and Sexuality in Stitch (at 3:30pm) and many of the (local) artists will be in attendance.

If you’re not in the LA area you can stream live – you’ll have to download Periscope and then friend or follow @thehivegallery – and it will be archived online after the fact to watch. I believe streaming live will give you the opportunity to write in questions during the Q&A portion of the panel.

Moderated by curator, Ellen Schinderman (me), the panel participants are: Billy Kheel (who’s just had a solo show in Denver), Emma Rose Laughlin (who was in Stitch Fetish 3 and is a current featured artist at The Hive), past Stitch Fetish artist Luke Haynes (who’s very busy with The Log Cabins of Donald Judd, a show of 50 quilts), and Ashley V Blalock, a multi talented artist and lecturer at California State University, San Bernardino.

This year’s show has been fantastic. There’s some amazing works still available, so come down and see them this week or check it out online. But I hope to see you Saturday, online or in person!

I’m flying up (I’ll be fashionably late, as my flight lands as the show opens), so I hope to see you at “Put the Needle on the Record!”

Billy Kheel!! I mean really, what can I say? I spotted his work at a Cannibal Flower show and reached out and he did not disappoint! Billy makes plushes and felt appliques, and the work is fantastic.  Here’s a little taste of what you’ll see from him at Stitch Fetish 2.
