Another book by one of our wildly talented and creative friends has just come out, and we're happy to be hosting a little soiree this Saturday to celebrate the launch of Knot Thread Stitch with author and artist Lisa Solomon.
We first met Lisa when we moved to San Francisco in 2006, and saw some of her work in a group show at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek. (I think it was the mended rifle targets, which are still some of my favorites.) We were about to launch our online shoppe, and got in touch with her to see if she might want to contribute any pieces to our gallery page. Lucky for us, she agreed!
Mended Target by Lisa Solomon, 2006
After visiting her studio, we realized that not only was she a talented mixed media artist (and possibly the sweetest person ever), but that she was a photographer, painter and graphic designer as well. And a teacher, too!
Hope you can join us this Saturday, July 14th from 5-7pm at the shoppe to celebrate!
We're at 855 Valencia Street (between 19th and 20th) in San Francisco.
