Red Earth Art Center presents

    "Our Common Thread"

    Showcasing the Indigenous Textiles of South & Central America

    The Red Earth Art Center is proud to announce the opening of
    "Our Common Thread," a new art exhibition that focuses on the
    indigenous tribes of South America, the Kichwa, and Central America, the Guna,
    and the textiles they use. The exhibition will feature works by renowned Kichwa
    artist, Alejandro Vaca, from Quito, Ecuador and the vibrant molas (dulemola) of
    the Guna.


    The exhibition will showcase textiles created by indigenous
    people of the Americas, providing an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding
    and appreciation of the intricate and meaningful textiles created by the Kichwa
    and Guna tribes. These textiles are not just works of art, they are a
    reflection of the culture, history, and traditions of these tribes.  


    Furthermore, this exhibition brings attention to the
    underrepresented indigenous communities and encourages visitors to learn more
    about the rich cultural heritage of these tribes, as well as the indigenous
    tribes of the United States. The exhibition is a reminder that although we may
    come from different backgrounds, we all share a common thread of humanity, and
    it is through art, in this case, textile art, we can gain a deeper
    understanding and appreciation of the world around us.



    The exhibition will run from January 18th to March 31st,
    Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
