“Threads” opened to rave reviews at Tubac Center of the Arts. “This is a show I would expect to see in Los Angeles or New York,” stated a visitor to the art center. The work comes from artists from twenty different states and is a sampling of the versatility and innovative use of fiber in contemporary art. Historically, fiber art has been viewed as “women’s work,” sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting. Contemporary artists have moved beyond the gender specific perceptions with innovative approaches to using fiber materials in art. Juror, Kay Khan of Santa Fe, NM (http://www.kaykhanart.com) has selected art from entries across the country creating a diverse exhibit from wall hangings to sculpture to large scale installations. This is a must see exhibit.
