“Common Threads 7: Sanctuary,” tells a story of American artists who were not born in here, but instead chose to become American citizens. Common Threads 7 is a celebration of the rich tapestry of immigration and the American story. C.a. Shofed’s Common Threads was established in 2013 to showcase the work of Trenton area artists and artists influenced and inspired by the Trenton art scene. It was forged to empower these artists to build bridges beyond Trenton’s borders and to foster economic development and prosperity. The exhibit will open on Janu. 24 and run through Feb. 23. An opening reception featuring food vendors and various artisans selling their merchandise will be held on Jan. 26 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.. The BSB Gallery is located at 143 E.
