Exhibit Opening Reception: Threading the Needle

Mann Library Gallery, Second Floor, Mann Library 237 Mann Drive, Ithaca NY

Please join us for an opening reception celebrating Mann Library's spring 2023 exhibit "Threading the Needle: Weaving Traditions into Contemporary Textile Art."

Using needle and thread, warp and weft, 28 artists mend and explore the meaning and self-expression behind textile creation and envision a future of textiles and “slow fashion” that brings storytelling back into the conversation and back into our own relationship with the textiles in our lives. 

Refreshments will be served. 

Mann Library is pleased to present "Threading the Needle" as part of the "Threads of History: Textiles Across Cornell" programming occurring on the Cornell campus in.  2022/2023.  Other exhibits and events taking place at Mann Library as part of this programming include:
