    “Underlying Threads: Interpreting the Textile History of a Mill Town,” an art exhibit that looks at the place of textile mills in river communities in Maine, has opened at Common Street Arts in downtown Waterville. The Hathaway Shirt Co. textile mill at the Kennebec Falls, seen in this painting, is one of the subjects explored in the exhibit. A variety of textile-based media are used, including quilts, crochet and fabric-based painting, sculpture and collages. The exhibit continues until May 30.
