The River and the Thread: Fiber and Woven Forms from the Ohio Valley is inspired by a Rosanne Cash album, while also defining the geographical area the artists in this exhibition are living and working in. The connections between a river and thread are compelling. They both weave through material, time, terrain and the human condition. Our own Ohio River simultaneously passes - and connects - a disparate terrain and disparate people like the threads in these extraordinary works.
This exhibition features the work of five artists in the Ohio Valley whose practices are as diverse as their materials. We can marvel at how material and thread come together and how fluid actions done by the artists can create a striking synergy, like the harmony in a flowing river.
