Lost at Sea
daring fiber artists delve into the deep
May 6 - June 11

gallery hanahou / 611 Broadway, Suite 730, NYC /

Opening reception: Thursday, May 6, 7-9 pm RSVP

There is something about the malleability and textures of fabric, thread, and yarn that speaks of the sea and its many mysteries.

Curated by Kristen Rask of Schmancy and "Plush You," "Lost at Sea" gathers 32 exciting artists who share underwater visions of items lost, creatures forgotten, and life that struggles to stay with us. The show will feature a broad array of amusing and uncanny works in embroidery, plush, and other materials.

Special workshop on 5/8: Contemporary Embroidered Fabric Collage with Nicole Licht

Brooklyn fiber artist Nicole Licht will lead participants in making embroidery and fabric collages with a "Lost at Sea" theme in a workshop similar to one that she has led at the MAD museum.

Oh how I wish I could be there for the opening! If you can manage a trip yourself, I would love to hear all about it. Look for three of my pieces at the show, showcasing my beloved Henry and his "forever knitting" companion, Marge. Be there to witness there journey into the treacherous, octopus ridden waters as they try to enjoy a Sunday afternoon out for tea :)
