'Stitched' Soft Sculpture and Plush Exhibition @ The Clutter Gallery 4/13!

In case you need any other reason to adore Lana Crooks, have a look at the insane roster of talent she's wrangled for this show. Really, just LOOK at this! Her latest curatorial effort, Stitched is a group soft sculpture and plush exhibition taking place next month at Clutter's gallery in New York. And overwhelming talent aside, these sculptors and needle ninjas are among some of the nicest people on the planet: Amanda Louise SpaydShawnimalsKelly DenatoCarisa Swenson (Goblinfruit Studio), Stitches and GlueJezabel NekraneaNonesuch GardenMelissa Sue StanleySteff BombKit LaneTravis LampeMelita Curphy (Miss Monster) ... need I go on?! We're talking major love fest PLUS plush and sculpture from all ends of the spectrum, y'all. If you are able to see this show, GO. Truancy is not an option!

Stitched opens April 13th through May 4th, with a reception from 6pm to 9pm opening night. Given the number of artists from New York, Chicago, Ohio and surrounding areas, I'd imagine quite a few will make the trek to NY (they probably want to ogle all the awesome, too). For a shot at snagging a piece from the exhibit, be sure to sign up for the preview here. And also sneak a peek below at some teasers from Miss Monster, Kit Lane and PlushPLAY!
