I first saw Chris’s work at said gallery over 3 years ago now. Mind was blown. Dreamy, mystical, and just a little off in subject to make your mind have to move and focus.
If you have the opportunity, go see this show. He’s one of the most talented artists out there, from the Netherlands, and shown here, in our town. Thank you Kirsten Anderson!
The music, the wine, the array of people standing by, all admiring what I consider to be the one show I refuse to miss at the Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle. The artists that make up “Lush Life 3” are all extremely talented contemporary artists from all around the globe. They include:
Femke Hiemstra, Chris Berens, Josh Keyes, John Brophy, Travis Louie, Marco Mazzoni, Madeline Von Foerster, Jessica Joslin, Joseph Park, Chris Conn Askew, Christian Van Minnen, Andrew Arconti, Lindsey Carr, Zoe Williams, Michael Alm, Corine Perier, Mia Araujo, Peter Gronquist, and Mia Brownell.
The show kicks off tomorrow night, Friday, December 9th from 6-9pm. And will continue thru January 6th.
So it’s Stitch & Bitch Sunday here at happy delusions where if you don’t know already, you are invited to come down and join in our little stitch fest. And as always, I feel it only right to bring attention to some amazing stitchers out in the world. Today I’d like to let everyone know about Mandy Greer. I was first intro’ed to this lady while watching handmade nation, which if you haven’t already, go watch this documentary by Faythe Levine. It’s what got me do to my sweet PBR latchhook, that I’ve had such recent success on. If you’re in the Seattle area get your booty down to Roq La Rue before May 7th and see her rad chandeliers at the “Lust Life 2” Group Invitational, and support our local galleries and artist in them. Mandy is one of the women who can take her vision and really put it into a piece that will leave your eyes to hours of wonder and enjoyment. So much going on, so much detail, so much fun, and so much work. Way to go girl. I literally have dreams of her work in my shop windows. I mean hey, a girls gotta dream. 🙂
