Visit to Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community Exhibition

  • This location is shown only to members

Thanks to the courtesy of the curator John Chaich of the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, we are being given a free tour to a current exhibition called Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community. It looks to be a fantastic event so I hope all you knitters and hookers will join me for this great afternoon of threaded art. 

Queer Threads will fully activate the Museum’s gallery through felt paintings, yarn drawings, embroidered portraits, knit sculpture, quilted tapestries, and crocheted installations, as well as video. From Nathan Vincent’s life-sized crocheted men’s locker room, to Liz Collin’s oversized knit pride flag based on Gilbert Baker’s 1978 original design, works range from intimate to expansive in scale. From Allyson Mitchell’s found afghans emblazoned with phrases such as “Pride is a Pyramid Scheme,” to James Gobel’s use of felt, acrylic, and yarn to create a portrait of fashion design team Costello Tagliapietra, many of Queer Threads’ artists mix craft technique or materials with traditional mediums, while others fully employ craft processes.

As usual, please RSVP responsibly since I'd like to give John an accurate number. If you're not sure of your availability, don't RSVP until you know for sure.

    Kool choice for an adventure. Good to see the variety of fiber expressions. and the variety of fiber media. Excellent display. Definitely an outside-of-the-box day.
