This evening is the opening of Stitch: Modern Embroidery at the Haydon Art Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. From the website:
Stitch: Modern Embroidery celebrates the traditions of the thread and needle and uses them to explore contemporary issues of domesticity, gender roles & feminist perspectives. Artists Jenny Hart, Wendy Huhn, Elizabeth Ingraham, Lauren McEntire & Maggy Rozycki fill the gallery with colorful stitched works that drape from the ceilings, hang on the walls, and fill the room with sculpture.
Stitch: Modern Embroidery First Friday receptions will be held on Friday, October 1st & Friday, November 5th from 6-8:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
