Common Thread Opening Reception

FREE and open to the public on Thursday, April 27 from 6-8pm. Creative York’s opening reception of “Common Thread” and “Spatial Inequity”.

Creative York invites you to share your fiber art with us for an exhibit seeking to focus on aesthetics and materials used in a piece. Similarly to the words of English poet Edmund Waller, “…all human things of dearest value hang on slender strings.” Art can be made with common threads and extravagant fibers to create a masterpiece.

Join us for our opening reception on Thursday, April 27th from 6-8pm at Creative York!

Virginia Sperry: Spatial Inequity Artist talk on Tuesday, May 30 5-6:30pm

“Spatial Inequity” is a site-specific installation by Virginia Sperry that continues her personal exploration into the complexities of race in America. With this work the artist delves into the inequities and different emotional realities of being American based solely on skin color. From slavery and redlining to infrastructure planning and education, physical space has always been controlled by white people. This control has been (and continues to be) used to create divides in the economic and physical heath of Americans along racial lines. Using walls of sumptuous colorful yarn and hand-made paper sculptures, Virginia physically divides the space so the viewer can experience these differences on a proprioceptive and emotional level. Adding a twist, she flips the color spectrum and creates a new paradigm designed to challenge our assumptions about what is normal.
