About:
“We find ourselves caught in a fragile time. Political events are unbelievable. The physical earth is being destroyed. Isolation lulls us into looking out for only ourselves. But Nature, good people, stories and music call out to us. We have to stay connected. We have to do what we can to survive and to help others. Our common threads are fragile, but they are all around us, joined in every direction.

Fragile Connections is an exhibition of Thread Collages I have pieced together with fabric from other work I have created. My drawers are full of cotton, linen, and silk with images and colors I have applied myself. I have torn them into scraps and sewn them back together with colorful threads.

The pieces you see here have scraps of eco prints, cyanotypes, and fabric dyed with natural dyes. Some have been torn before and some after they received the images. Some scraps have been dyed a second time. Each finished thread collage was sewn on my sewing machine after attaching the disparate scraps to a water soluble stabilizer which maintains a gap while it is stitched together. Separate, but connected. Fragile, but tough.” -Cidne Hart

A Look Back: Mapping Another LA: The Chicano Art Movement

This archived exhibition explores the 1970’s Chicano art movement in East Los Angeles. With the establishment of the first Chicano art gallery in East Los Angeles, Chicano artists initiated a collective reimagining the urban landscape through such media as photography, graphic arts, murals, painting, and sculpture. These artists mapped another L.A., harnessing their work as part of a social protest and community empowerment movement.
