Patches + Stitches
July 3rd at Light Grey Art Lab
Artist talk with Teagan White from 7-8pm
Opening Reception + Meet and Greet to follow
Join us for a two-part exhibition that celebrates the tactile nature of textiles- craft, decadence, patterns, and personal identity! We welcome you to the Patches + Stitches Show, featuring originals and limited edition pieces by 70+ international illustrators, designers, screen printers, and creatives!
Patches is our bad ass show. It includes dark, limited color, gritty, screen-printed, hand-painted, embroidered and dyed patches- clever takes on the imagery we all know and love and phrases we can't resist! These artists have taken back patches, insignias, and embroidered designs to the next level!
Stitches is our beautiful show. The work is decadent, elegant, and decorated in flora and fauna. It includes intricate needlework, the knots, beading, sequins and appliqués. These colorful pieces and modern designs challenge our ideas of old-school embroidery! Reinventing the classic expectations of one of the world's oldest textile techniques!
Come explore both sides of this show and meet some of the incredible participating artists! These events are free and open to the public.
