Black Quilt Makers Art on Display

Black Quilt Makers Art on Display
The exhibit will run through Dec. 20.

The W. Keith and Janet Kellogg University Art Gallery features new works by Southern California black quilt makers. Curated by Donald Bernard, this exhibit will run through Dec. 20, and a reception for the artists will be held on Sunday, Nov. 23 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Quilt making is a viable art form practiced all across the country, and Southern California has its own strong group of quilters. This exhibit acknowledges the black quilt makers who make reference to or use African fabrics and/or African patterns. Many of the quilts on display are made primarily from fabric found within the vast quantities of brilliant African fabrics and African prints and patterns. Some quilts also combine with fabrics from around the world.

The quilters featured in the exhibition are: Linda K. Gardner, Inez Bradford, Barbara Friedman, Cecil Session, Mary Brewer, Nadine Hegaman, Cynthia Catlin, Estelle Hamilton, Jacque Bordeaux, Carolyn Mayfield, Vivian Townes, Harriette L. Vanderhorst, Dorthy Taylor, Rose Smith, Gloria Sanders, Ethel Parm, Sylvia Davis, Clara Davidson, Sara Brandon, Anne Batiste, Earthlene Briggs, Allyson Allen, Louise McGee, Ree Adams, Debora Amofo Yeboah,  Lou Holland-Jones, Rosalee Watson, Sharon Matthews, Donald Bernard, Olga Chachere, Josi Goldsby, Rita Myles, Bernice Hilson, Pam Johnson and Lois Smith.
