Personal Iconography

My piece “Purple Girl” is featured in the Dinner at Eight Artists’ exhibition, “Personal Iconography:  Graffiti On Cloth,” which was shown at International Quilt Festival – Houston in fall 2017. It travels next to International Quilt Festival – Chicago in April 2018. The exhibition catalog (shown below; cover art by Judy Coates Perez) is available at Amazon.com for $10.

 

Threads of Resistance

My work “Poisonous Words” is featured in “Threads of Resistance,” an exhibition of fiber art protesting the Trump administration’s actions and policies on climate change, sexual assault, immigration, the refugee crisis, racism, and sexism. It is showing at 13 venues across the U.S. through 2018. You can view all the submitted artwork on the Threads of Resistance website. The exhibition catalog is available on Amazon.com for $20. The exhibition has been covered by American Craft magazine (August/September 2017; “Poisonous Words” was pictured) and Quilting Arts magazine (October/November 2017) as part of the craftivism movement. 

“Threads of Resistance” is currently showing at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Mass. It runs through Feb. 18, 2018. On Jan. 21, the museum will host a reception and roundtable discussion to celebrate the opening of “Revolution in the Making: The Pussyhat Project” and “Threads of Resistance.” Sue Bleiweiss, member of The Artist Circle Alliance and “Threads of Resistance” organizer, will be there.
