PRINCETON — The Princeton Public Library will host its fifth exhibition of artists April 1-19. This year's show will feature various textiles, including needle arts, textiles, woodworking, paper craft, pottery and other three dimensional arts.

Various organizations regularly meet at the library and they wanted to feature their artistic talents along with others in our community. The theme, "Connecting Threads," not only refers to the textile arts featured but also connecting the various artists in our community.

The exhibition is open to students and adults who would like to display their projects in the library. The works can be traditional, contemporary or avant-garde. It is open to the original artists of quilting, weaving, fabric design, embroidery, needlework, knitting, crocheting, rug hooking, paper crafts, wood- working, print making, wire crafts, jewelry making, ceramics, stained glass or any other three dimensional artwork.

All applicants must submit a photo of their art work with their application, that can be picked up at the library after Feb. 7. These applications must be submitted by March 7 at the latest. Each piece must be no larger than 39 inches by 6-foot-10-inches. Submissions must be by the original artist and all submissions should be appropriate for the general audience (family-friendly).

After review by the "Connecting Threads" committee, artists will be notified of acceptance into the show the week of March 14. The selected artwork will be displayed throughout the library from April 1 to April 19.
