Scott Nedrelow is a man of many mediums.¬† Along with making handcrafted iPad sleeves and cases camouflaged as books — a product appropriately named “BOOK” and appropriately labeled with “this is not a book” — Nedrelow uses his art space to make prints, paintings, bound volumes… and sandwiches.¬† His Sandwich Bar for Peace, which is part deli and part art gallery, takes art as payment for food and displays the currency on its wall.¬† Nedrelow is also busily working on the compendium volume to Location Vol. 3, a show that features work from several artists.¬† The Location Vol. 3 opening show is November 10th at The Burnet Gallery at Chambers.
The colorful world of Annie Lee Larson is nothing short of amazing.¬† She’s received world-wide attention for her knitwear goods, including her specialty: sweaters.
Larson runs an loin shop out of her studio and produces each garment by hand; the process entails knitting and assembling the pieces to produce each piece. She uses a Brother KH-950 Electroknit Knitting Machine that she can scan in her costume designs.¬† The scan cards, she points out are terribly tedious and fickle — Larson has to use a certain kind of pen that she found after trying dozens, she also can only buy the scan cards from a certain vendor overseas and they don’t come cheap.
Larson gave us a look into her process, and catches us up on the origins of her work, traveling to France, Cafetto and her favorite colors.
