Blanket Statement - A generalization, or something that covers everything.

It may include a whole group, often without regard to the differences of that group.


Blanket Statement

October 4 - November 3

Blanket Statement poster design

The exhibition title, Blanket Statement, is a play on words as well as a bold statement conjured using the unlikely "craft" of crochet. Arney and Flynn showcase the possibilities and potentials that the world of crochet and the wider world of needlework can contain in a wildly creative manner. The duo enthusiastically embrace the 'grandma culture' often associated with crochet, challenging ideas of Western Hegemony and the bifurcation between fine art and craft.


Blanket Statement is Threadwinners’ first retrospective with all of the 3D tapestries/blankets they have created in the last three years.

Reception: Thursday, October 11, 5-7 pm
