ARTIST CALL: Home is Where the Needle Marks at Pop Tart Gallery

Pop Tart Gallery
Los Angeles, CA
Deadline: 03-15-2012


Home – a place of safety or danger?


A haven, a place full of shame, where you want to be, a room full of old routines and identities – anywhere you hang your hat? How does the word Home resonate for you?


Home is Where the Needle Marks, at the Pop tART Gallery in Los Angeles, will explore the concept of home and all that the word connotes, highlighting the contrast of contemporary artists using stitch vs. the preconceived notion of “home sweet home.”


We ask artists to submit works that deal with the idea of home. Feel free to interpret this theme widely. All types of stitched work are welcome for submission: knitting, crochet, embroidery, needlepoint, cross-stitch, quilting, applique-stitched, please feel free to submit.


Please note we are looking for contemporary interpretations of theme and medium.
