St. Johns Cultural Council Showcases 17 Local Artists in ‘Threading the Margins’ Exhibit

The St. Johns Cultural Council in St. Augustine, FL, will be hosting a series of events centered around theater and textile arts. One of the events is “Thread and Bone,” a solo show by Lisa Egan Woods, a theater artist and heart-surgery survivor. The performances will take place on September 2 and 3 at The Waterworks on San Marco Avenue in St. Augustine. Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite.

In addition to the theater performances, there will also be an exhibition called “Threading the Margins” at the St. Johns County Administration Building’s Rotunda Gallery. The exhibition will run from September 5 to November 30 and will feature seventeen local artists who were selected through an open call. The exhibition will include antique garments and samplers from the Peña-Peck House and Ximenez-Fatio House museums.

A reception for the participating artists will be held on September 5, and the formal opening of the exhibition will take place on September 6. Both events are free and open to the public. Throughout September, October, and November, there will be hands-on textile arts workshops at The Waterworks.

The St. Johns Cultural Council is able to present these events with support from the Florida Division of Arts and Culture, the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council, and the St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners. The Waterworks is made available through the City of St. Augustine.
