Common Threads is a group exhibition consisting of photographic and installation works produced by female artists, who are in varying stages of their artistic careers. While each of these artists has a unique vision and style in regards to their artistic practice, there is a common theme that encompasses all of these works of art. Depictions of domesticity and explorations of female identity are visually portrayed through this exhibition. Each artist draws from her personal experiences and environment to further investigate the current and historic role of females in today’s society.
Exhibition runs from October 9 – 30, 2014
Opening reception with the artists: October 11, 2014, 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Curatorial and artists lectures from 3:00 – 3:30 PM

I am extremely fortunate to have a studio space while I work towards my MFA in Photography at Texas Woman’s University. I share my space with my fellow first year photo grads, Dianne Smith and Claire Warden. It is nice and spacious with gorgeous natural light. I have pinned up my research / inspirations as well as working prints. It is delightful to have a space to create and be inspired. I have checked out a few books from the TWU library as well as from the Denton Public Library. Sophie Calle, Elinor Carucci, Nan Goldin, and Francesca Woodman are greatly inspiring my current work.
