The title of the exhibition Holding by a Thread stems from the popular expression Hanging by a Thread, but with a twist. While hanging is defined as suspending or to put to death by suspension, holding is to support or to embrace. Holding thus suggests a special care is taken. The play on word was intentional since some of the work in this show can be viewed as hanging while others as holding. The four artists selected, Carole Baillargeon from Quebec, Kelly Bruton from Newfoundland and Labrador, Line Dufour and Lorraine Roy from Ontario, present recent fibre art work. They address social, personal, and cultural issues woven with political, financial and artistic concerns. Their influences are varied and unique, yet they are all linked to humanity and a relationship to their surroundings.
