About The Artwork

The creative experience is a process of discovery. Although I’ve worked in many visual media, now I most appreciate the warm, organic qualities of natural fibers, handmade paper, and objects such as river stones. In recent years, my work has made use of the needlelace technique—some of the same stitches used by traditional lacemakers, but arranged freely and intuitively. These techniques and materials convey concepts that show up in most of my work: the mystery of organic life appearing and diversifying, whether from the sea or space or the primordial muck. I’ve learned that a forest is as much intervals as trees, nature is as much life force as forms, and in empty spaces a subtle energy comes into being. BIOGRAPHY Pat Perrin is a lifelong visual artist and writer. She earned a BA in English from Duke University, also took courses in art, and taught art in public schools, including gifted and talented programs in Virginia and Georgia. For some years she co-owned a Shenandoah Valley “art farm,” then she did a creative thesis for her MA in Liberal Studies from Hollins. She continued studio work while earning a PhD in Art Theory and Criticism from the University of Georgia. In recent years her work has been featured in Fiber Art Now magazine and included in two Orange County Artist Guild exhibits, the Durham Art Guild 63rd Annual Juried Exhibition, and the 2017 North Carolina Artists Exhibition (juror, Michael Rooks of the High Museum). She has had one-woman shows in the North Carolina Crafts Gallery and in the Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende (where she and her family lived for nearly 14 years). Earlier work appeared in juried shows at the Lyndon House Art Center (Athens, GA), the Virginia Museum, the Mint Museum, and the traveling exhibit Southern Sculpture. She is also a published author, usually writing in collaboration with her husband, Wim Coleman, who is an award-winning playwright and poet. Her essay “Reveyesed I’s” appeared in the Reality Club anthology Creativity (Simon & Schuster, 1993).

My name is Brittany Wittman McLaughlin and as an artist, educator, and curator, I created The Common Thread Gallery as an online gallery to promote and encourage women artists so that they receive the recognition and praise for their work as a contemporary expression of fine art. I engage in and teach weaving as an art form and a way of healing. I inspire, educate, and empower artists to cultivate their ideas with an openness to new creative processes and sense of self discovery through art making. Participation in the arts creates more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds, and who lead productive lives. My work in supporting and promoting artists impacts the world of contemporary art by exhibiting and promoting fiber as a medium of fine art expression. Art helps to heal our world and addresses narratives that are important during our time. The purpose of the work is to communicate ideas – politically, spiritually, or philosophically; to create beauty; and to explore the nature of our perceptions. I am educated in Art and Design and I have professional experience in both academia and industry. I earned my MFA in Sculpture from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2005 and BS in Textile Design from Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science in 1997.
