Anna Laurie Mackay, Jean Richardson, Jen Watson, Jethro Gillespie, Kathryn Knudsen, and Daniel Barney – Common Threads

The exhibition Common Threads was created by a group of local artists who share a common inspiration of fiber and textile. Each artist approaches textile and fiber differently through the use of a variety of media. Some artists work with fiber literally, while others use fiber and textile as conceptual inspiration for their work. The exhibition will include woven paper, altered everyday objects reflecting common daily usage, screenprints representing movement through the past and present, fabric work investigating the ritual of repetition, repurposes textiles, and sewn objects which facilitate a blurring of traditional craft and contemporary art.

Eric Fairclough – Memory Mechanics

Eric Fairclough’s work is a practice in repetition, perfection, and meditation. Creating complicated patterns is a way for Fairclough to explore the inner workings of his mind. Having suffered from anxiety most of his adult life, Fairclough’s art practice has given him a needed sense of control. Creating patterns requires precision and perfection, which can be found in his work, but upon closer examination, his paintings reveal an underlying layer of disorganization and chaos. Fairclough sees the juxtaposition between the order and disorder as a direct reflection of the inner workings of his mind.
