Common Thread

Creative York invites you to share your fiber art with us for an exhibit seeking to focus on aesthetics and materials used in a piece. Similarly to the words of English poet Edmund Waller, “…all human things of dearest value hang on slender strings.” Art can be made with common threads and extravagant fibers to create a masterpiece. Join us for the opening reception on April 27th from 6-8pm at Creative York!
