Textile Center Presents: A Common Thread 2018: Annual Member Exhibition
January 8, 2018 through March 10, 2018
A Common Thread 2018 showcases the breadth and talent of Textile Center members. 120 artworks will adorn the walls of Textile Center's galleries in an exhibition that is as diverse in technique as it is prolific in scope. Submitted from among the 1,000 Textile Center members, fiber art techniques represented will include weaving, quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing, dyeing, felting, needlework, hand construction, polymer clay, lacemaking, basketry, beading, sculpture and multi-media. The exhibition brings together our community of textile artists for an annual celebration of work honoring textile tradition and innovation. From colorful and patterned surface design and dyed works; to meticulous stitched and quilted pieces that range from wearable to pictorial to photographic; to weavings that are spontaneous and symbolic; to sculptural forms of gesture and contemplation, the processes of textile practice are broad and the quality of practice runs deep. Artist Reception: Wednesday, January 10, 5:30 - 7:30 pm Gallery Hours: Monday - Thursday, 10 am - 7 pm Friday - Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm Free and open to the public!

January 21, 2018 through March 4, 2018
Branch Gallery is excited to announce its upcoming exhibition, TORN: Together and Apart, featuring work by author and illustrator Hope Anita Smith. TORN will consist of paper collage illustrations from Smith’s recent books, Mother Poems and My Daddy Rules the World: Poems about Dads. The opening reception is on Sunday, January 21 from 2pm - 4pm. There will also be a short reading by Smith on January 21 at 3pm. Using paper as her medium, Smith presents family relationships through layers of ripped paper. Various colors and textures depict skin, clothing, and furniture. Figures take shape through frayed edges; each tear in the paper becomes a shoulder, an ear, or a hand. Parents embrace their children, play games with them, or teach them to ride a bike. Smith’s imagery is emotionally stimulating and powerful reminders of one’s own personal relationships. TORN will be on view through Sunday, March 4, 2018.
