'Uncommon Thread' Exhibition Begins Jan 19

Art quilts take center stage in new exhibit at Village Theatre & Art Gallery

Start the new year off with an artistic flair as the talents of the Creative Fiber Artists Quilting Group will be on display in a new exhibition at the Village Theatre & Art Gallery.

 

The Town of Danville presents Uncommon Thread, an art exhibition opening Thursday, January 19, 2017 at the Village Theatre & Art Gallery, 233 Front Street. 

 

Uncommon Thread is an exhibition featuring unique art quilts created by a local quilting group, The Creative Fiber Artists.  The exhibition is guest curated by local resident, Margaret Winter.  Viewers to this exhibit are invited to share a new view on quilts.  The work in this show depicts landscapes and still-lifes and quirky interpretations of everyday things.  These are not traditional quilts in that they do not follow old-fashioned quilting patterns and they incorporate mixed media, setting them apart from the typical American quilt.

 

An Opening Reception for the Uncommon Thread exhibition is scheduled for Thursday, January 19, 2017 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  This is a family friendly event that will delight people of all ages.  Complimentary refreshments will be served at the opening reception and as always, this event is free and open to the public.

 

For those who miss the Opening Reception, the exhibition runs through February 18, 2017. The Village Theatre and Art Gallery is open to visitors Wednesday to Friday 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Monday and Tuesday by appointment only.  The Art Gallery is closed on Sundays.  Admission is free.
