Wasted Thread at Blend
Local fiber artist Tiffany Denton will be combining her love of textiles with a bit of environmental awareness for her new show at Blend, premiering at this month’s Gallery Crawl. Wasted Thread is an installation composed of recycled clothing and fabrics that Denton has collected by soliciting donations from several states. Each element in the piece is labeled with the name of the donor and their location. A number of local businesses participated in the project, serving as drop-off sites. Once the exhibit runs its course, the piece will be disassembled and remade into clothes and other items that will be resold at boutiques and galleries all over Nashville. Proceeds raised from the sales will go to support Kiva, an organization that addresses world poverty issues.
