Roomful of Relics
For most of us, there's a spool of old sewing thread gathering dust in the back of a drawer full of other unused junk. Plus, when a button finally does snap off, unless it's your favorite shirt or blouse, you toss it out--never mind the thread. Artist Gabriel Dawes works almost exclusively with thread, but he isn't sewing buttons. Actually, he's not sewing anything. Dawes entwines yards of thread to create 3-D patterns and designs in the installations of Relics and Remembrances. His work will be on display with Cassandra Emswiler's, whose work draws upon memories of her childhood home. A reception will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday at Centraltrak, 800 Exposition Ave., where the works will be accessible 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays. The exhibit runs through April 23. Visit utdallas.edu/centraltrak for more information.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: April 1. Continues through April 23, 2011
