Knitting is for Pussies - Yes, It is!

Yes, knitting is for pussies. Just ask artist Olek, known for her extensive designs, spontaneous and lightning speed crocheting skills. If you thought crocheting and knitting died along with the riot grrrl movement in the pages of Bust Magazine (which we heart), you thought WRONG.

Olek's work has been featured around the globe from NYC to the Venice Bienale, often under the radar but always well received.

Join Olek her very FIRST solo show at the Christopher Henry Gallery in Nolita, NYC.

Opening reception is Thursday, September 9th from 6-9pm. The exhibition runs through October
