This month, we're highlighting the works of various fiber artists currently showing around the country and the world. If you'd like to suggest an artist or an exhibit, please feel free to leave a comment and let us know!
This past week two fun art exhibits in New York City opened featuring some of our favorite fiber artists: Anna Hrachovec and Nathan Vincent.
Anna Hrachovec is best known for her blog Mochimochi Land and Knitting Mochimochi, her book of adorable knit toys. Her new exhibit at Gallery Hanahou displays an entirely hand-knit world, including skyscrapers and a quirky landscape with a model train running through it. The exhibit will last through October 29.
Nathan Vincent is a fiber artist who creates typically masculine objects in knit and crochet. He is one of many artists being featured in the inaugural group exhibit at Klause Gallery through October 31. You may remember him from the crochet taxidermy at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio or from the Yarn Show on Martha Stewart.
Workshops for a November exhibition at the Textile Arts Center are already underway. Artist Kim Hall, who believes that every knitter's first scarf is lucky, is teaching knitting and collecting the resulting scarves for her project, "Virgin Knitters". Check out the calendar for more information.
