Laure Drogul and Orchestral Knitting

Baltimore performance artist Laure Drogul won the Janet and Walter Sondheim Prize last year for her installation art and is at it again this friday at Atomic Pop with her latest, "Apparatus for Orchestral Knitting," a device which amplifies the clicks and whirs of knitters needles and scratchy yarn as a rhythmic sound symphony. Drogul will be joined by NY based Sabrina Gschwandtner (a knitter, artist and author of "KnitKnit: Profiles + Projects from Knitting's New Wave") and performances/booksignings will run 7-9pm. It's also first fridays in Hampden, so be sure to stop at Double Dutch for their 10% off sale, Red Tree for their b-day bash, and lots of other shops & galleries that now stay open late on the first friday of every month!
