The four artists, two working in fiber and two in paint, come together in this eclectic exhibit that celebrates life and the threads that connect us. The viewer is presented with a novel way of looking at the world and is given a new realization of the beauty in everyday encounters, experiences, and objects. An emotional connection and strength runs through the work; there is an awareness for detail, the use of color, light and shadow, for rhythm and for human emotion. The ordinary becomes extraordinary; the viewer is inspired to look at their surroundings with wonder and appreciation for the small things, all the more apt due to the challenging times we are living through.
