Guam - The Isla Center for the Arts will host an exhibit called the "Threads of Life" with the help of the University of Guam and a grant from the Guam Humanities Council. Co-founder Jean Howe says the organization first started in 1998 in response to the economic crisis that occurred in Southeast Asia.

She says the works displayed in the exhibit are made with natural dyes, which would've taken the artists about nine to ten months to complete. "The hope for this exhibition is to give people a sense, particularly, of connection. What you'll find in a lot of the textiles are elements of trade. So there will be motifs that relate towards the trades coming in from India and China, bringing trade materials that would've been textiles or bronzes."

The exhibit will be open to the public starting tomorrow at 6:30pm and will be on display up until March 26 at the Isla Center for the Arts at the UOG Dean Circle in Mangilao.
