Virginia Hall: Summation

The Tubac Center of the Arts is pleased to host this profound and personal show by the brilliant Tubac artist Virginia Hall. Candid and cryptic, honest and abstract, Hall’s work is a dialectic of paradoxes, dreams, memories, and astounding images.

“I am taking the opportunity, rendered by eighty-five years, to explore an important realization. At the age of three or four while playing with paper doll scraps I discovered that selecting them, arranging them, removing unwanted elements on a dark rug produced astonishing happiness. Once satisfied, I could recreate this amazing happiness with a tiny change in the arrangement. I was somehow affirmed. I see it now as a mystery, an alchemical event. An adult entered the picture. “Clean up this mess.”” – Virginia Hall

“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.
