Man, I WISH I could see this exhibition! So many of my favorite artists (Hine Mizushima!) are included in the second year of the fabulous Ellen Schinderman’s Los Angeles show. Damn!

And, from Ellen’s press release:
“It’s back and even better than last year! The Hive Gallery and Ellen Schinderman present Stitch Fetish 2, exploring the art of the stitch (a rite and fetish unto itself), revealing the secrets lurking in the minds of the artists. Works of erotica and titillation! Works of dark fantasy and longing. Works of secrets never told, but long desired.
This year’s exhibit showcases the work of more than 30 contemporary stitchers.
Bren Ahearn, Mark Bieraugel, Katharine Lawrie, Amy Goldsmith Sheridan, Meghan Willis, Tara Fields, Carol Powell, Ashford Harrison, Mo Powers, Judith Pudden, Robert Marbury, Pita Garcia, Matthew Monthei, Erin M Riley, Shae Merrit, Kevin Muth aka Dirty Pillowz, David & Vesna Miller, Ken Amarit, Hine Mizushima, Luke Haynes, Billy Kheel, Oh Sew Nerdy, Rebeka Trigg, Spike Dennis, Maxine Shaw, Maggie Hunt, Iviva Olenick, Reavis Eitel, Leah Emery, and of course, me, Ellen Schinderman.
We hope you’ll attend opening night or art walk, as we’d love to show you the works in person. If you’re unavailable those dates, Ellen will be happy to meet you another time and talk about the show.
So come on down to the Hive in February and be titillated and tantalized by all the stitchy naughtiness!!”
Would that I could!
