This is the final week of “A Common Thread 2016,” the Textile Center of Minnesota’s annual member show. What a great organization. What a amazing amount of fabulous textiles in one spot; too many, really, to appreciate at one time. My rug/hanging made with Finnish knit fabric weft is in the show. (More on that piece here.) I hadn’t mentioned it to friends because it has such poor placement, in the back hall, across from the coat hooks, the last possible spot. I can’t complain about this at all; often my pieces have been displayed to great advantage, and this year there were more participants than ever before.
However I ran into a friend yesterday who excitedly flashed an Iphone photo at me. “Look! I came in the back door of the Textile Center, and it was the first thing I saw.” Everything is a matter of perspective!
The Textile Center posted “interviews” of the artists on their Facebook page. Here’s mine.
