“Common Threads” is curated by University of Dayton student Victoria Brey, a Dixon Gallery assistant.
“We live in a divided world, the fragments of which scatter further and further apart every day,” Brey noted in a press release. “Sometimes, we need a reminder that we are all connected, along with a bit of hope in the face of all this darkness. I want my show to provide that hope for the future and a lesson in connection… and what better way to show the threads that bind us all together than through literal threads?”
When the event opens, a number of artists from around the community will be featured. These artists include:
- Andrea Walker-Cummings
- Suzi Hyden
- Jeanne Rusnak Fehskens
- Cynthia Catlin
- Bailey Ryan Hammond
- Pam Geisel
- Cathy Jeffers
- Susanne Conyers
- Darden Bradshaw,
- Allison Parrish-Tinkle.
An opening reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10. This event, which is free and open to the public, will feature light refreshments and words from the artists beginning at 6:30 p.m.
