A new exhibit at the Adirondack Museum includes historic quilts from the museum's textile collection, as well as contemporary quilts, comforters, and wall hangings on loan from quilters in communities throughout the region. "Common Threads: 150 Years of Adirondack Quilts and Comforters" opens today and will remain on display through October 18th. It explore themes of women's work, domestic life, social networks in a rural area, generational continuity among women, and women's artistic response to life in the Adirondacks. Curator Hallie Bond told Todd Moe that "Common Threads" connects the past with the present through familiar household objects.
