Group Show | paper + thread | June 21 - August 31

This show brings together a group of artists who work primarily with paper or fiber. Both mediums are somewhat elemental, oftentimes tied to traditions of craft or perceived as lesser arts, they have been all too regularly relegated to the margins of what is deemed “fine art.” The artists participating in Paper & Thread, fully embrace the materials, using them both traditionally and in more contemporary ways to highlight their unique qualities, bringing them clearly into the realm of fine art.
