“Threads” is an exhibition that presents 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 (www.kaykhanart.com) has selected art from entries across the country creating a diverse ?exhibit from wall hangings to sculpture to large scale installations.  Artists from twenty different states are ?represented in this exhibit.
