September Art Share Gallery Opening: Threading the Needle – a celebration of punch needle rug hooking and related artforms.
THREADING THE NEEDLE showcases the work of 11 contemporary women fiber artists whose primary focus is in the medium of Rug Hooking, Punch Needle Rug Hooking and Tufting. These three different techniques, all with shared roots, unveil a forgotten North American rugmaking and folk-art heritage that is currently undergoing a modern revival. Presenting a range of new interpretations spanning color, design and technique, THREADING THE NEEDLE explores the interplay between history, heritage and experimentation, celebrating the future of this craft while paying homage to punch needle’s past and the overlooked generations of women whose work came before.
