Hi everybody! Friend of Mr X Stitch Jennifer Hunold dropped us a line to let us know some exciting news – she’s curating a show!
The working title of the show is Nifty and the focus is fiber art. It will be held at the Collar Works Gallery in Troy, New York from August 26th to September 16th.
Here’s what it’s all about:
Artists working in fiber are steadily increasing their visibility within the art world, invigorating art discourse with innovative adaptations of historically rich techniques and mediums. These textile works–previously allocated to the periphery of artistic dialogue as kitsch, craft, or hobby art–are gaining recognition in the art world with a captivating energy that is recontextualizing traditional notions of “craft.” This exhibition seeks to participate in the elevation of the medium.
Go here to see more details and instructions on how to submit your work – and tell Jennifer Mr X Stitch sent you! 🙂
