Narrative Threads exhibit

by

Narrative Threads is a traveling exhibition curated by Alicia Bailey of the Denver-based Abecedarian Artists’ Books. The exhibit is on display in the Dayton Memorial Library through the month of June.

The exhibit features works utilizes visible threads/fibers in addition to or instead of the structural/functional use of threads found in traditional book binding. This form of interactive sculpture invites the reader/viewer to experience a tactile, hands-on exhibit that is engagingly intimate.

Works are appealing in their hand-mindedness and interactivity. Even the works not meant to be handled tempt the viewer to touch their surfaces, enlivened as they are by the sewn line and texturally dynamic fibers.
