July 2022 Gallery Opening: Rhode Island Threads

In Providence this month:

The July show at The Gallery at Sprout CoWorking (166 Valley St) is titled “Point Well Taken”, showcasing the latest experiments in fiber arts by Rhode Island Threads members. The Gallery at Sprout Providence will be open to the public to see the artwork in-person weekdays from 9am to 3pm, or by appointment. The exhibition will be on view July 6th-28th.

“Recent times have provided opportunities for introspection, revisiting places close to home, and an occasional travel adventure. Due to the emotional roller coaster of the past two years, we all feel a greater appreciation of our families and our communities. The members of Rhode Island Threads chose this title because it makes reference to our chosen medium, as well as conveying our desire that you, the viewer be stimulated by our kind of textile art. We hope you enjoy our show and encourage you to reach out to individual artists regarding their work.”

Rhode Island Threads is a group of artists exploring textiles through fiber arts that meet to support each other’s artistic journeys. Members include Sue Bates, Alice Cooper, Phoebe Girard, Leslie Hartwell, Al Bates Lombard, Julie Maxwell, Veronica Mays, Karen McCann, Sandra Mitra, Suzanne Munroe, Suzanne Noonan, Laure’ Warren and Allison Wilbur.
