Enjoying the art

Princeton Public Library’s Youth Services Co-Director Ron McCutchan poses with just a few of the estimated 80 pieces of artwork currently on display at the library as part of the library’s “Connecting Threads” art show, which runs until April 19.

This year’s theme challenged area artists and artisans to create a statement through the use of textiles and dimensional art. Created by 30 area artists, the artwork ranges from needle arts, rug making, rug hooking, mixed media, furniture, blown glass, jewelry and wire art. Artists have also been presenting evening programs as part of “Connecting Threads.”

At 6:30 p.m. April 15, local artist Janet Moreland will talk about what prompted her to combine quilts with her painting. At 6:30 p.m. April 17, there will be a presentation on the Barn Quilts public art movement by the Barn Quilts of Bureau County.
