Current Exhibition

Threads: Stories and Histories through Textiles

November 1 - December 16, 2023

In Threads: Stories and Histories through Textiles, we meet four artists from different walks of life who use the material qualities of fibers and woven panels to tackle larger subjects. While strength, flexibility, and the process of attaching and detaching give textiles a practical role in everyday life, these same characteristics provide apt metaphors for encountering displacement, injustice, and adversity. Featured artists include Maria-Theresa Fernandes, Baltimore, MD; Lahib Jaddo, Lubbock, TX; Anthony Pabillano, Houston, TX, and Michelle Talibah, Baltimore, MD.

Meet the Artist

Join us on Thursday, November 30, 5:30-7:00pm for a free reception to celebrate the exhibition and meet hear from artists Maria-Theresa Fernandes and Michelle Talibah. Live violin and cello performance by Leah Valenches and Peter Brubaker of the NEPA Philharmonic.
