SPUN hits St. Louis!!! February 7th and 8th at the Craft Alliance

See a few of the SPUN Finished Works in Fail-Safe:  Discomforts Close to Home, opening Friday, February 7th, 6-9PM

The Craft Alliance in St. Louis, Missouri is hosting the exhibition Fail-Safe:  Discomforts Close to Home, curated by Marci Rae McDade.  The show “features a wide range of artists creating textile and fiber-based works of contemporary art. Although the media these artists are working with are familiar (embroidery, found objects, textiles, etc.), each piece is loaded with incendiary content directly in opposition to the comfort imbued by the material itself. The pieces in this show comment on difficult aspects of life in 21st century, relating to poverty, racism, digital disconnect, and the fleeting nature of life itself.” – Marci Rae McDade

Join us at the SPUN Kiosk!

Friday February 7th, 2-4PM & Saturday February 8th, 1-4PM

The SPUN Kiosk is bringing unfinished needlepoint to the Craft Alliance for a two-day event celebrating collective effort and “getting things done”.  In addition to working on unfinished needlepoint, we are encouraging artists of all kinds to bring in their own unfinished projects and work on them in a supportive environment.  Join SPUN founder Mary Smull for this interactive art making experience and help contribute to the ever growing SPUN archive.
