An exhibition and sale that ‘transcends’ all preconceived ideas of art and fashion. The works of a knitter, a photographer, a beader and a poet are arranged in tableaux where each of the four artists’ work interacts with one another.

Featuring the work of:

  • Kenneth Bernstein, photography
  • Grey Held, poetry
  • Maria Mizrahi, jewelry
  • Irina Taytslin, knitting designer
  • Heidi Vernon, master knitter

Knitter Heidi Vernon executes the designs of Irina Taytslin with an artistic quality of craft using texture and color to produce sweaters that bridge the line between fine and and craft.

Maria Mizrahi combines semiprecious gemstones and different materials such as silver and seeds with Tagua nuts to create colorful jewelry with a funky, whimsical flair.

Ken Bernstein‘s photography may change the way you view the ordinary world. Ken studied philosophy which helped organize his ideas about the “poor, lowly art of photography”.

Grey Held, poet, is a recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Creative Writing and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

Curator Melinda Gordon brings a myriad of talents as an artist, photographer, video producer and computer designer to this project. Most recently she was the Education Channel Coordinator at NewTV.
