So excited! Coming at you, Seattle!!

Hey all! I’m curating a second show this year, Put the Needle on the Record, at Twilight Gallery, Seattle! Very excited for this one, all music stuffs! Here’s some basic info:

Put the Needle on the Record at Twilight Gallery, Seattle, will explore the constant connection between visual art and music. They feed back and forth. Images inspire the music and the music surely inspires visuals. Cover art has been a part of the music experience since the first pieces of sheet music were published. Photos and portraits of musicians catch our imagination and allow us to feel what it might have been like to be there, at that show…

Artists, please submit musically themed works – needlepointed album covers, amiguri rockers, embroidered portraits, lyric explored (please push yourself creatively if doing this). All types of stitched work are welcome for submission: knitting, crochet, embroidery (machine, free hand, black work, crewel….), needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, plush, appliqué, tapestry, needle felting (i know it’s not stitched, but there’s needles and often blood, so it fully counts!), beading, mixed media (where fiber is a main component)… and any other stitchy forms i’ve forgotten (or woven or threaded or poked), please submit.

Please note we are looking for contemporary interpretations of theme and medium.

I was just going to post a fantastic painting of Father Xmas (give me some money) by Jo Spinks – she’s on my blogroll – but then I got inspired by John Butler over at Lozenge – also on the blogroll. He listed his top twenty most listened to songs of ’07, and here are mine.

It may not be the most au currant list, but it’s mostly acceptable hipster-wise.

And here’s the painting of Santa, as promised:
