Olek Exhibit at Christopher Henry Gallery Extended

Posted on: October 25th, 2010 at 6:12 am by

Olek’s stunning yarn bikes and yarn car seem to have captivated the neighborhood.  In our daily travels, we often see her artwork attracting gazes and photo lenses alike. Without fail.  So much so, that the Christopher Henry Gallery has decided to extend her exhibit, “Knitting is for Pus****.” Now’s your chance to check it out.

The artist just informed us that her installation has been extended through the end of November. At least.  There’s a chance it will last even longer. And if you’re now wondering why the yarn car is no longer parked curbside, thank the NYPD. The vehicle was apparently not deemed a “real car,” so the gallery was forced to move it from its comfortable parking space. We are told it now sits “behind bars” in the Holy Trinity Ukrainian Church lot next door.
