"Craftivism is a way of looking at life where voicing
opinions through creativity makes your voice stronger,
your compassion deeper & your quest for
justice more infinite."
-Craftivist, Betsy Greer
I had the good fortune of being invited by my
dear friend Cheri to attend the opening
of this powerful show.
If you're in the Syracuse area, it's truly a moving
collection of work not to be missed.
An excerpt from ArtRage Gallery's postcard:
Spoken Threads is a collection of fiber art
that takes its inspiration from the traditional
women-made crafts such as quilting,
knitting, weaving, sewing and cross-stitch.
It features women artists from across the USA,
including Central New York,
as well as those from Canada and the UK who use
their art to speak wisdom on a variety of social and
environmental issues. During the time of year
that many consumers reach for something mass-produced
off an end-cap display, this exhibition is a celebration
of the handmade.
