A Common Thread 2018 showcases the breadth and talent of Textile Center members. 120 artworks will adorn the walls of Textile Center's galleries in an exhibition that is as diverse in technique as it is prolific in scope. Submitted from among the 1,000 Textile Center members, fiber art techniques represented will include weaving, quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing, dyeing, felting, needlework, hand construction, polymer clay, lacemaking, basketry, beading, sculpture and multi-media. The exhibition brings together our community of textile artists for an annual celebration of work honoring textile tradition and innovation. From colorful and patterned surface design and dyed works; to meticulous stitched and quilted pieces that range from wearable to pictorial to photographic; to weavings that are spontaneous and symbolic; to sculptural forms of gesture and contemplation, the processes of textile practice are broad and the quality of practice runs deep. Artist Reception: Wednesday, January 10, 5:30 - 7:30 pm Gallery Hours: Monday - Thursday, 10 am - 7 pm Friday - Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm

"Born Again" features selected artworks from Judy Chicago’s "Birth Project," a series of screen prints, needle works and textiles that first toured the United States during the mid-1980s. Chicago collaborated with over 150 experienced needle workers to create this series, which addressed the dearth of birth imagery in western art. "Born Again" takes a fresh look at the themes investigated in the "Birth Project" and considers their impact – art historically, societally and intellectually – 30 years after its creation. Curated by Dr. Viki Thompson Wylder. This exhibition has been organized by Through the Flower in conjunction with the Albuquerque Museum of Art and the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts. Sponsored by The Friends of The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery.

Judy Chicago's work radically shifted ideas, materials and processes in the feminist art created after "The Dinner Party" and the "Birth Project," giving way to two generations of artists free to explore and challenge the constructs that define them as women and women artists. "After: Birth" specifically addresses contemporary responses to the concepts of motherhood, sexuality and the role of embroidery, clay, fibers and photography in third-and fourth-wave feminist art. Curated by Jess Larson. Artists: Amber Cobb, Orly Cogan, Susan Gilbert, Mari Hernandez, Jess Larson, Tracy Otten, Jennifer Pettus, Libby Rowe & Andrew Leo, Stansbury, Martha Russo, Suzanna Scott, Colleen Toledano, Sarah Spencer White | co-sponsored by the Abigail Quigley McCarthy Center for Women at St. Catherine University

The Friends of the Ramsey County Libraries have announced the theme for their fifth Annual Gala: “A Whale of a Tale.” This celebration of literary adventures on oceans, lakes, rivers, and ponds will be a public fundraiser held on Saturday, February 24, 2018 at the Roseville Library, 2180 Hamline Avenue North. The gala will run from 6:30-9:30 p.m. and feature a live music, a silent auction; a live auction; complimentary hors d’oeuvres, wine and craft beer; prizes, a costume contest, a photo booth, and more! All proceeds benefit the seven branch locations of the Ramsey County Library. The live and silent auctions will feature exciting items in categories such as dining and sightseeing experiences, sports memorabilia and tickets, artwork, comedy and theater tickets, autographed books, and gift baskets. Past Friends Galas were attended by over 280 people and raised $30,000 to add 1,500 new items to the lending collection of the Ramsey County libraries located in Maplewood, Mounds View, New Brighton, North St. Paul, Roseville, Shoreview and White Bear Lake. The Friends’ goal is to repeating this success in 2018. Last year, the Ramsey County Libraries served 1,574,655 visitors and circulated 3,850,918 items from the lending collection. The Ramsey County libraries have the highest circulation per staff member in the Twin Cities metro area. Gala proceeds enable the Friends to add much-needed items to the lending collection, including extra copies of the most popular materials as well as audio books, large-print books, e-books and special collections. Costumes or festive evening attire are encouraged but not required. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes. Guests can make a real splash by dressing as their favorite characters from any fiction or non-fiction book set in, on or around water. This event is open to the public and tickets are on sale now. Tickets may be purchased either online or by mail for $50 per person in advance, or $60 at the door. $25 of each ticket is tax deductible as a donation.

A Common Thread 2018 showcases the breadth and talent of Textile Center members. 120 artworks will adorn the walls of Textile Center's galleries in an exhibition that is as diverse in technique as it is prolific in scope. Submitted from among the 1,000 Textile Center members, fiber art techniques represented will include weaving, quilting, knitting, crochet, sewing, dyeing, felting, needlework, hand construction, polymer clay, lacemaking, basketry, beading, sculpture and multi-media. The exhibition brings together our community of textile artists for an annual celebration of work honoring textile tradition and innovation. From colorful and patterned surface design and dyed works; to meticulous stitched and quilted pieces that range from wearable to pictorial to photographic; to weavings that are spontaneous and symbolic; to sculptural forms of gesture and contemplation, the processes of textile practice are broad and the quality of practice runs deep. Artist Reception: Wednesday, January 10, 5:30 - 7:30 pm Gallery Hours: Monday - Thursday, 10 am - 7 pm Friday - Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm

"Born Again" features selected artworks from Judy Chicago’s "Birth Project," a series of screen prints, needle works and textiles that first toured the United States during the mid-1980s. Chicago collaborated with over 150 experienced needle workers to create this series, which addressed the dearth of birth imagery in western art. "Born Again" takes a fresh look at the themes investigated in the "Birth Project" and considers their impact – art historically, societally and intellectually – 30 years after its creation. Curated by Dr. Viki Thompson Wylder. This exhibition has been organized by Through the Flower in conjunction with the Albuquerque Museum of Art and the Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts. Sponsored by The Friends of The Catherine G. Murphy Gallery.

Judy Chicago's work radically shifted ideas, materials and processes in the feminist art created after "The Dinner Party" and the "Birth Project," giving way to two generations of artists free to explore and challenge the constructs that define them as women and women artists. "After: Birth" specifically addresses contemporary responses to the concepts of motherhood, sexuality and the role of embroidery, clay, fibers and photography in third-and fourth-wave feminist art. Curated by Jess Larson. Artists: Amber Cobb, Orly Cogan, Susan Gilbert, Mari Hernandez, Jess Larson, Tracy Otten, Jennifer Pettus, Libby Rowe & Andrew Leo, Stansbury, Martha Russo, Suzanna Scott, Colleen Toledano, Sarah Spencer White | co-sponsored by the Abigail Quigley McCarthy Center for Women at St. Catherine University

Rugged mountain man Kristoff, his loyal reindeer Sven, the lovable and hilarious snowman Olaf and the mystical trolls help Anna along the way. In Disney On Ice presents Frozen Presented by YoKids, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take the audience through the magical story based in Arendelle, with special appearances by beloved Disney princesses and favorite characters from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story and Finding Nemo and Disney’s The Lion King, who come together to prove that true love is the greatest power of all. Director Patty Vincent says, “Our goal is to showcase these heartwarming characters in a way that allows the audience to cheer and sing along throughout this emotional journey.” To create a completely immersive experience for the audience, the set design will encompass the space from the ice surface up through the air, drawing everyone into the story and closer to the characters. Families will feel that they are trekking up to the North Mountains with Anna, Kristoff and Sven, and they will tangibly experience the storm inside Elsa.
