Olek and G

Eat your heart out David LaChappelle!  I went to check out the must-see exhibit “Knitting is for Pus****” by Olek and to my great fortune, she was at the Christopher Henry Gallery (127 Elizabeth Street in New York) when I arrived.   We chatted about many things including Facebook, Los Angeles, and of course, I had the opportunity to tell her how incredible her work is!  The exhibit, which runs through October 17, 2010 has a miniature studio apartment on the ground floor of the gallery and every item inside is crocheted by Olek.  It’s so cool that you really have to see it to believe it!  When I asked to take a photo with her, she not only happily obliged, but I got to literally jump into her world and join her in the bathtub!  WOW!  As you can see from the above picture, we kept it G-rated.  Thanks to Jason L. for the wonderful photo and thanks to Olek for not only creating such great art, but for this picture that will entertain the masses for generations to come!
