Anthology: A compilation of new work by Lille's favorite artists


As I mentioned the other day, this month's First Friday art show, "Anthology," will be a compilation of new work by some of our favorite local artists, including "Someday, Someday, Same Day II," the self-portrait by Sarah LaBarre pictured above. I find LaBarre's work particulary fascinating since I do some of my own machine-embroidering on lingerie, and I know how complicated and time-consuming it can be. In a brief conversation about the work, Sarah mentioned that she put at least 50 hours into this piece, and it shows. Many modern artists are working in fibers and embroidery these days, but few to such an advanced degree. I can't think of another piece that incorporates fine-art techniques like shading and layering to capture emotion quite like this one, and I applaud the execution wholeheartedly. Join us for a glass of wine and converse with some of our absolute favorite local artists while admiring the new styles from VPL, Araks, Malia Mills, and the very exciting new Danish line, Hoff by Hoff, for which Lille is proud to be the exclusive US retailer! (Here's hoping it arrives in time- fingers crossed.) Hope to see you then...
