Duluth, MN-  The Red Herring Lounge is pleased to host the “st1tch : : : red” show, a multi media group exhibition of collaborative textile and fiber art.  The “st1tch : : : red” opening reception is November 12, 2016.  The artist reception will be from 5:00pm until 8:00pm, with music and mixed media beginning at 9:00pm.  Please note that there will be a $5 cover post 9:00pm.

Featured fiber/textile artists displayed in the “st1tch : : : red” show are Frank Palmer, Karen McTavish, Scott Lunt, Alexander Kain and Cheryl Dennison.  Much of the work displayed will explore nontraditional and unconventional fiber/textile art technique and subject matter.  Each piece was created specifically for the exhibit and all of the featured artists will be in attendance and available to discuss the individual pieces during the artist reception from 5:00pm until 8:00pm.

After 9:00pm the evening will explode with the projections of Kathy McTavish in conjunction with musical performances by Reflectivore and Ire Wolves.  In between same, and unique to this exhibit, will be a onetime event for the opening night encompassing a sewing related performance piece by Karen McTavish, Frank Palmer and Scott Lunt, led by Kathy McTavish.  
The evening will revolve around tension, stitches and machine and the interconnectedness of these elements with music.  

The “st1tch : : : red” exhibit will run for one month.  The opening reception is Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 5:00-8:00pm.  If you would like more information about the exhibit, check out our website at www.st1tch.io or contact Eris Vafias, st1tch : : : red, Administrative Assistant at eris.plethora@yahoo.com
