Be sure to check out Elana Herzog’s show, Into the Fray, at LMAKprojects February 19.
It will be up February 19 – March 27 with an artist talk March 6.
Herzog alters and manipulates found textiles, including bedspreads and rugs, by stapling, tearing and draping. These fabrics are transformed into new surfaces, often resembling organic decay or growth on the gallery walls they inhabit.

Not in New York for fashion week? If you happen to be flying through Atlanta’s international airport be sure to check out Nancy Judd’s Recycle Runway fashions. Judd brings new life to things that have outlived their original purpose and displays these intricate items in high traffic locations like shopping malls and airports.
