For thousands of years, people have been practicing the craft of designing or creating textiles. First emerging from a necessity to fill basic needs, different cultures around the world took it to another level by developing methods of making artistic, creative and beautiful cloth that laid the basis for what we call textile art.
The history of textile is very complex and includes weaving, tapestry making, fabric dying, embroidery, felting or quilting. Today, artists are using these methods to create new and exciting works. Fiber art, born out of necessity is becoming more and more conceptual. Artists are placing a new focus on the work confronting social and political issues.
Shared Threads features the work of six (6) artists: Maya Schonenberger of Miami, Pat Kumicich of Napels, Liz Canali of Charlemont,MA , Aurora Molina of Coral Gables, Heather Hopcraft of Mount Dora and Vikki Pignatelli of Reynoldsburg, OH.
