The Welborn Gallery:
Filament: New Work 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 April 29 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.
American Tapestry Alliance member and professor Emerita of North Georgia College and State University Tommye McLure Scanlin will give a keynote address at the exhibition’s opening on Saturday 6 May 2017 at 4 pm in the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center’s classroom space. A reception will follow in the Gallery, marking the official opening of the Yadkin Arts and Cultural Center’s 2nd Annual Fiber Showcase
