Filament: New Works from Tapestry Weavers South
From the upholstery in our cars to the fluffy towels that dry us fibers in our lives are overlooked and cast aside in quotidian American life. Through an examination of tapestry, the Yadkin Arts and Cultural Center’s Welborn Gallery proudly presents Filament: New Works from the Tapestry Weavers South, an exhibition re-examining our relationship to textiles. Taking fibers from our daily use to the gallery’s walls, viewers can explore Filament beginning May 1 until July 31 2017. Bound by the presence of fiber and thread, Filament ties together the imaginative with the tangible through tapestry. As the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center’s Second Annual Fiber Showcase, this exhibition highlights the newest and most vibrant visualizations in Southern tapestry.
