thread thread A nice tribute, in a way, to New England's textile industry is "Holding The Line,'' a show of fiber work at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth's College of Visual and Performing Arts through Sept. 11.  The show's notes say that he work "captures a point of view,  maintains a perspective, and defends a principle through the linear qualities of thread.''

Sounds pretty windy. Still, there's real art here.
