Exhibition Description

The four artists in this exhibition are unified by the idea of protrusion. In the Red Room, Lynn Kelly's site-specific felted tree installation made for the Festival will protrude from the floor and appear to puncture the ceiling, reappearing in the second floor stairwell. Magda Wojtyra's landscape of colourful cones springs out from the wall into a spiked magical landscape. Robyn Thomas's magazine hooked Flare spikes out from the surface. Ying Yueh-Chuang's solo exhibition in the Roastery Coffee House features ceramic flowers protruding from her fabric backgrounds.

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.



401 Richmond St. West joined the Festival for 2012. There will be shows in the Red Room at the side of the front entrance and the Roastery Coffee House on the ground floor. This building is a central arts hub in Toronto.

Special Thanks to Gallery Liaison Erin MacKeen.
