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.

"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.

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.
