The Moon Gallery showcased the artistry of Johanna Norry and Amanda Britton, in their exhibition “Common Threads,” from August 21st to September 14th on campus.

Norry teaches at the University of North Georgia and specializes in fiber art, weaving, textiles, 2D Design, and color theory. Several art galleries, including the Georgia Museum of Art, have featured her work.

Britton is the Head Director of the Textile and Surface Department at Kennesaw State University.

The creation of the “Common Threads” exhibit was based on assembling and manipulating different fragments of material, including the use of paper, shells, cloth, thread, and much more.

These pieces were made to evoke memories and when placed together are meant to be in conversation with one another.

Britton incorporated the concept of migration into her works, wanting to embody the feeling of moving towards and away from things. She achieved this by creating collages sewn on paper that bring together various materials and found objects.
