For many fiber artists, the stitch is our form of mark-making: a way of announcing our presence in the work. We use our threads to mend, to embroider, to cover up, or put back together. A Line, a Link, a Web will feature artworks that highlight the stitch as an essential structural element, as well as an opportunity for embellishment, intervention, and disruption. This exhibition will explore the many ways artists employ the visible stitch for both form and function, our threads variously becoming a line, a link, or a web.
