    November 21, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Number 4 on my Life List is to embroider a self portrait, so you can image my excitement when I was introduced to the work of Cayce Zavaglia! Trained in painting, Cayce utilizes her background to embroider these painstakingly realistic portraits from wool and silk thread. Check out the video below to see her process.

    Don’t be deceived by these objects, these rocks are handcrafted with handmade abaca paper and various salts adding texture and color. This is just one series from artist Kate de Para, her work explores various mediums from sculpture to drawing to photography, all capturing elements of the world around her.

  4. Artist: Gabriel Dawe

    Gabriel Dawe’s thread installations are magnificent. Using all the colors of the rainbow, crossing and warping the threads creating illusions and depth. I love how the piece changes depending on your point of view.

  5. Artist: Anne Lindberg

    October 24, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Thread is such a simple, common place object; lately, I’ve been enjoying the abundance of artist and crafters who have been pushing the limits of this versatile material. Anne Lindberg has been using thread to create linear drawings, ominous installations and massive sculptures. Her installation pieces appear to float in space as they freely pass through the gallery walls. 

  6. Artist: Anne ten Donkelaar

    October 18, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Artist Anne ten Donkelaar uses a lovely mix of materials: colored and grayscale printed floral images, embroidery floss, twigs and butterfly wings to create complex floral constructions and mended butterflies. Through collage Anne gives life to various exotic plants and lands aid to butterflies with broken wings through assorted means of flight. 

  7. Artist: Montgomery Perry Smith

    July 19, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Montgomery Perry Smith collects everyday objects like glass bowls, incense sticks, fake flowers (to name a few) and transforms them into something more foreign then common. Symmetry and repetition compose circular forms that lure your gaze with familiarity, yet leaning inward could arouse feelings of bewilderment. 


  8. Artist: Lauren DiCioccio

    July 12, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Lauren DiCioccio is an amazing embroiderer and sculptor, her series sewnnews applies unusual colors and shapes in a painterly way to bring new life to the familiar aesthetic of the newspaper.  She uses the same process with other objects both antiquated and common.
