Hey Buffalo people!
Myself and a large group of other fantastic artists that work with thread have got a show opening this Friday at Studio Hart! You should all go check it out! Facebook event HERE! This great groups of artists was brought together by local collector Gerry Mead, and has been in the works for over a year.
Here is the write up….
Please join Studio Hart for an opening reception for the exhibit UNCOMMON THREADS, Curated by Gerald Mead. The exhibit will continue through the month of September.
Artists working in all media frequently experiment with materials outside of their comfort zone. This exhibition illustrates that concept by focusing on one element – thread or string. It includes work by artists working in a variety of media such as painting, ceramic, metal, bookworks, printmaking and collage who incorporate thread in their artwork in innovative ways. Using a fibrous material as a component of artwork often adds an element of detail that draws the viewer in for closer inspection, thus establishing a visually intimate relationship between the art object and its spectator. It can also used as a means to spatially connect elements within the composition of an artwork, and underscore the dynamism of that composition.
