"Ktog (Knit Together)."
Artist Rania Hassan uses knitting and painting to explore "connections found in everyday experiences" in her exhibition "Threads" at Montpelier Arts Center in Laurel through Monday.
"Threads" features 15 works using fiber, oil and wood.
"I am fascinated by the connections we find in our everyday experiences," stated Hassan
in promotion material about her
mixed media work.
"In the needle, yarn and finger movements, I explain how the act of knitting connects us to our community and generations past," Hassan
has exhibited her
work throughout the Washington metropolitan area and is a 2008 recipient of the DC Commission for the Arts Artist Fellowship Award
