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.
Crazy art prep over here in stitch-fetish-land! Such great work! So excited for Saturday night! The work’s at the gallery, going to unpack today and start laying out; tomorrow and Friday actual hanging, and then Saturday‘s the opening. So crazy that it’s actually here, it was so far in the future for so long and now, here we are!
Finished up my contribution the other night. I wanted to continue working with the large scale cross stitch, but I didn’t want to make a large piece, so I made my first small(er), large scale piece, “Sucker,” 12″x12″:
I couldn’t be more excited for Stitch Fetish 3 (only a month away now!!!) and the amazing artists in this year’s show! Here’s the line-up:
Bren Ahearn and Jesse M Kahn
Josephine T. Huang
Emma Rose Laughlin
Oh Sew Nerdy
Heather Marie Scholl
It’s going to be an outrageous show; hope to see you there!!
That’s right… it’s back! Stitch Fetish 3 at the Hive Gallery in Downtown, Los Angeles!!!
CALL FOR ART!
Stitch Fetish 3, at The Hive Gallery, will continue to explore the art of the stitch (a rite and fetish unto itself), revealing the secrets, desires, and obsessions lurking in the mind of the artist. Works of erotica and titillation! Works of dark fantasy and longing. Works of secrets never told, but long kept.
Artists, please submit stitchy works of erotica and fetish – feel free to interpret this theme widely.
Makers of all varieties of stitched work are encouraged to submit: knitting, crochet, embroidery (machine, free hand, black work, crewel….), needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, plush, appliqué, tapestry, needlefelting (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 componant)… 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 medum.
Submission Details: Eligibility: All artists over 18 are eligible. Work can utilize any medium but must primarily use stitching (or fiber). Works should be no larger than 24”x24” framed (unless you contact me specifically). Works must be wall mountable and ready to hang – sculptural pieces should be no bigger than 24″ at their largest dimension (again, unless you contact me specifically). Work must be original and created after 2012.
For submission dates, details, and entry links, please go HERE.
Well, it’s a bit of a rainy day here in LA, but something you could do to brighten your afternoon is get downtown to see Stitch Fetish 2 on it’s final day open! Wow, did February fly by! Lots of wonderful times at the show, time spent working with the artists, time spent wrangling Wilkinson… and lots of amazing art work! Thanks to all who came, made, bought, blogged…. everything. You all rock my socks off!!
Tonight I’ll be at Flower Pepper Gallery for The Season of Spring, which has gotten mass press and looks to be a crazy show. The talent is off the hook – I’m so honored to be on the list of artists in the show – and the previews I’ve seen are fantastic. The show’s cash and carry, so if you’re wanting an affordable piece by potentially an artist you adore, come early!!
So, Wilkinson and I did last looks today at the gallery today… I swear, that man is so easily distracted, it’s a wonder I get anything done!
And it’s finished and fabulous and ready for you to come enjoy tomorrow night!! Can’t wait to see you at the Hive for Stitch Fetish 2!!
Got busy finishing up my second piece for Stitch Fetish 2 and haven’t posted in a few days…. ooops. Well here’s a little temptation to remind you to come out to the Hive Gallery this Saturday, February 8th. Today’s toothsome treasures are by Matthew Monthei, who’s got a bunch of beardy pieces in the show:
Couple of fun shows coming up in October! This coming Saturday night, the 5th, is the opening of the Hive Gallery’s tribute to Ray Harryhausen for which I made a red work embroidery (oy, did I embroider).
“Ray Harryhausen – Special Effects Titan”

No, not as Hollywood said the Mayan’s predicted, but, sadly, the final week of Stitch Fetish is upon us. If you’re in the LA area come down this week and see the show at The Hive. There’s so much great work!
And if you just can’t get there (sigh) the work is available to view and purchase online.
The Hive is open Wed-Sat 1-6, and I’ll be around the gallery Wednesday from 1-3 and Saturday all day, from 1-6. I hope to see you there!
