Exhibition Description

The decision to carefully curate our exhibitions with specific themes left many artists unselected. There was so much exciting and unique work that we couldn't bare not to show it! We decided to expand the Festival into the Halls of Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre. This diverse collection of work features 25 artists from Australia, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, and the USA. Follow the halls around the gallery to see a huge variety of media from quilts to tapestries to site-specific installations.

Common Thread International Exhibitions

The Common Thread International exhibitions are the flagship shows of the World of Threads Festival. Hundreds of artists from around the world submitted bodies of work, installations or individual pieces to the Festival. Multiple curators from various Oakville and Toronto galleries have created exciting exhibitions based on their own unique interests. We bring international contemporary fibre art to Oakville and the Toronto area as well as highlight the strength of our local artists.



The Halls of Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre.
Oakville's newest cultural centre has just opened in April 2012. Work will be exhibited throughout the building including the halls, main lobby and open areas.
