While contemporary culture has continued to use thread for utilitarian and decorative purposes, artists have explored its use and representation as a conceptual and expressive means for decades. These six artists rely on thread as both inspiration and drawing tool, creating works that span sculpture, installation, photography, painting and more. Participating artists include J Carpenter, Marjorie Forté, Leslie Schomp, Jodi Stevens, Antoinette Winters and Melissa Zexter. Beard Gallery, Watson Fine Arts
