 Thread/Bare pairs the work of five artists together to weave a story rich in individual experience. Working with textiles connects the five artists on view, while their personal stories will take on varied forms and mediums.    Textiles become a form of physical connection throughout the exhibition both literally and metaphorically. The stories that are presented converse with the viewer about lost familial connections, the need for exaltation of female figures, and the profound effects of love. Loose fiber explodes out of powerful, sensual female forms while within every painstakingly placed stitch is a new examination on how women are viewed in contemporary culture.    Thoughts on sensuality, heartbreak, repair, perception, and reclaiming the female narrative permeate the work on view. Works on paper, large-scale paintings, installation, as well as detailed embroidery works will be featured throughout the gallery.
