Transformation: Fiber as Medium

This is Art.

The Common Thread Gallery will represent the most exceptional emerging and established artists working with fiber as a medium for fine art expression. We will make the discovery, acquisition and installation of powerful works of contemporary art a beautiful experience and worthy investment for art collectors.

Exhibit Opening April 2019

This online contemporary art show is the inaugural exhibit to launch The Common Thread Gallery.

Transformation: Fiber as Medium

Transformation: a thorough, dramatic or marked change in form, nature or appearance; a metamorphosis; a renewal.

The mission is to curate an online exhibit of contemporary fiber artwork rooted in the spirit of feminine energy and creation using traditional materials, structures, and textile processes that focuses on the narrative of the work and its relation to the theme Transformation.

The Common Thread Gallery will exhibit and sell the best contemporary art in the mediums of weaving and fiber art.

The Curator

Brittany Wittman McLaughlin engages in and teaches weaving as an art form and a way of healing. She inspires, educates, and empowers artists to cultivate their ideas with an openness to new creative processes and sense of self discovery through art making. She created this online gallery to promote and encourage women artists so that they receive the recognition and praise for their work as a contemporary expression of fine art.

Educated in both Art and Design, she earned her MFA in Sculpture from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and BS in Textile Design from Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science.

Participation in the arts creates more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds, and who lead productive lives. My work in supporting and promoting artists impacts the world of contemporary art by exhibiting and promoting fiber as a medium of fine art expression. Art helps to heal our world and addresses narratives that are important during our time. The purpose of the work is to communicate ideas – politically, spiritually, or philosophically; to create beauty; and to explore the nature of our perceptions.
