Common Threads: Anatomy of the Wound
Recent violence in this world has wounded us. We are hurting. We are in pain. We need to heal. Join us in art-making to transform the hurt and the pain. Art can help heal the wound.
What to submit:
A 14” X 14” TEXTILE SQUARE IN WHICH THE IMAGERY REPRESENTS THE ANATOMY OF YOUR WOUND.
Packets of fabric will be provided to all participants. You are welcome to freely express yourself by using these materials and by adding your own. Stitch, paint, draw, collage, write, cut, paste, embellish... Your art piece is about you, your wound, and your healing. The common thread connecting all pieces will be a RED HEART (provided in each packet) that we ask you to incorporate into your piece. All finished pieces will be included in an art installation and exhibited at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center.
