A Mad Tea {Towel} Party!

Now this is fun! A few months ago Maya from the Nicholas Gallery in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio contacted me regarding an upcoming exhibition she curated involving artists coming together from all over the world to show their work on tea towels. "The humble tea towel is no longer merely relegated to the tasks of the kitchen. Reinvented, its form offers a unique challenge and serves as a new canvas for artists and designers. This show brings together some of the most exciting contemporary talent worldwide, most exhibiting in Cincinnati for the first time."


Talents like Marisa Haedike of Creative Thursday, Arian Armstrong, Atelier LZC, Sigrid Calon (I had the pleasure of viewing her work at Dutch Design Week in 2006), Phat Sheep, Push Me Pull You Design, Variegated Inc., and many others contributed their work for results that I'm sure will inspire many.


I just love seeing the work installed in the gallery and enjoy that there are some risks being taken in the art world, small changes that challenge the norms. You can view more photos from the show right here.
