    Stitched is an exhibition focusing on artwork that makes use of embroidery and stitching techniques. The group show is in two parts, the first part opened Friday, March 24th and the second opens Friday, June 23rd.
    Embroidery, stitching, and other fibers techniques that fall under the category of "craft" have sometimes been viewed as separate or lesser than "fine art" in the arts community as a whole. This is in large part because these techniques and skills are historically associated with women and "domestic tasks", overlooking the intense skill and creativity required to create the artwork. It has been exciting seeing opinions drastically shift about craft —a category many of our artists fall under at the gallery year-round — in recent years. We are thrilled to be highlighting this specific medium and the artists behind it, both female-identifying and not, at Paradigm.
