A Common Thread brings together the artwork of seventeen contemporary artists from across the United States who examine and sometimes subvert the centuries-old tradition of needlework. Representing a sampling of a larger wave of stitching fanatics, the artists in A Common Thread find inspiration in the medium’s history, materials, technique, and process to create works that are surprising, provocative, and at times, deeply personal.

The show includes work from artists Emily Barletta (New York), Gwenn Beope (California), Chandra Cerrito (California), Joe Cunningham (California), Lauren DiCioccio (California), Josh Greene (California), Aubrey Longley-Cook (Georgia), Joetta Maue (Massachusetts), Stacey Page (Florida), Maggy Rozycki Hiltner (Montana), Jeana Eva Klein (North Carolina), Rebecca Ringquist (New York), LJ Roberts (California), Hadar Sobol (Texas), Jessica Tang (California), Claudia Tennyson (California), and Amanda Valdez (Brooklyn).
