Plastic Bag Crochet Art of Jerry Bleem

Artist Jerry Bleem, who I recently named in my article on 20 Awesome Male Crocheters, has an exhibition coming up soon. The piece above will be featured in that exhibition. The flowers you see here are all crocheted from plastic bags.

The exhibit will be at Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago, starting November 2, 2012 and running through December 29th. Check it out if you’re in the Chicago area this fall! The gallery has online galleries of some of his other work, such as his Allegiance series, which is crocheted with American flags.

Incidentally, Packer Schopf Gallery has also shown work by another crochet artist I’ve highlighted here before, Laurel Roth.
