Friday: Waterworks Fall/Winter opening reception for ‘The Threads of Time’ 5:30-8 p.m. Sept. 14: Reception and artists talk

The new fall exhibition, The Threads of Time, opened at Waterworks Sept. 8. Three solo artists use a variety of media as a metaphor to weave together the fabric of our history, culture, and personal relationships.

BedNotes, a new collection of contemporary textile and mixed media works by Stephanie Woods, looks at concepts of the African American family viewed through and inspired by generational photographs.

An ongoing series of large-scale canvas photographs, The Mill Kids by Barry Moore illustrates the lives that were impacted by the textile industry and the child labor laws of that era.

Elaine Fleck’s Interwoven, brings together her love of textiles and painting to create images of strength and complexity in her nature-inspired paintings on fabric.

Meet the artists at the Opening Reception on Friday, Sept. 14, 5:30-8 p.m.. A special presentation will be made at 6:15 p.m. Light refreshments will be served; there is no charge to attend.

Admission is always free at Waterworks, 123 East Liberty St. Galleries are open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Osborne and Woodson Galleries:
STEPHANIE J. WOODS, BedNotes – textiles and mixed media
Stephanie Woods askes the question “What are the ways we mask and transform our identities before entering the world each day?” and she explores the answer to that question through her work.

Norvell Gallery: BARRY L. MOORE, The Mill

Kids – digitally modified canvas photographs
When Barry Moore, a retired textile worker, first saw the “mill kid” images by photographer Lewis Wickes Hine, he “was stricken by the fact that my life and security may be directly or indirectly due to child labor.” Intrigued by Hine’s circa 1908-1914 monochrome photographs, Moore began to manipulate the images singling out the children to “give them the spotlight they deserve.”

Stanback Gallery Hall and Y P G Gallery: ELAINE FLECK, Interwoven – mixed media paintings
“Textures are what excite me; the woven or hand knit texture of fabrics and the rich tapestry of nature. Years ago I created a way to merge my love of textile art and painting” explains Fleck.
