Connective Thread at Sweet Lorraine Gallery

This coming Saturday, January 9th, is the opening for Connective Thread, a group fiber exhibit curated by Joetta Maue, a Brooklyn-based embroiderer. You can see her work and learn more about the exhibit here.

If you are in the New York area, I encourage you to visit Red Hook, Brooklyn to check it out. I can't wait to see the installation. The images on Joetta's blog are very promising.

The exhibit is in the Sweet Lorraine Gallery, an artist studio building. The exact address is 183 Lorraine Street, 3rd floor. The closest train is the F to Smith-9th Streets, and then it's a bit of a walk under the BQE. (In fact, this area is part of one of my many running routes.)

As an added bonus, Joetta has invited artists who applied and were not accepted into the show to hang a piece for the night of the opening. I just may join in. 

I am looking forward to a night of inspiring fiber art, and to mingling with my artist peers.


  1. I soooo wish I could be there!

  2. Keep checking Joetta's blog - she is posting images every day for the show.
