CRAFT friend Kirsten Rask is curating a show at gallery hanahou in NYC starting May 6:

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.

On Saturday, May 8, 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.

I’ll be giving you an inside look at show setup closer to the event, but be sure to mark it in your calendars!
