Atlantic Gallery will open its doors to TENUOUS THREADS, a two-part exhibition showcasing works incorporating textiles, fibers, threads and mixed media. Tenuous Threads alludes to the delicate lines that bring us together and sets us apart; that join us yet repel us. All of life is connected through networks, systems, fibers and webs. Communication (visual, verbal, electrical, chemical, and kinetic) enables an exchange of information amongst all life forms. The exhibition, curated by Patricia Miranda, includes innovative artworks that utilize textiles, fibers, threads (natural and synthetic) in sculpture, collage, 3D and 2D mixed media that communicates the strength and fragility of what binds all life.

Beautiful piece by artist Priscilla Stadler entitled Skin (care) 9, 2022. (17 x 4 in) will be in Part 2 of Tenuous Threads at Atlantic Gallery. Image courtesy of the artist.
