“Responses to Gee’s Bend” an upcoming exhibition at Swarthmore College: UPDATE
I am excited to be near completion of my quilt for this exhibition and look forward to seeing the contributions of the other 11 Quilters selected for this honor. Of course, I cannot show you the completed quilt before the curators have their chance to see it, but I will be posting pictures in an appropriate timeframe. For some reason I committed myself to hand quilting this piece. What was I thinking? This may be the onset of carpel-ritis!
Responses to Gee’s Bend an exhibition presented in McCabe Library, Swarthmore College Curators: Alicia Ruley-Nock & Andrea Packard

The exhibition will run concurrently with Piece Together: The Quilts of Mary Lee Bendolph, an exhibition organized by Mount Holyoke College Museum of Art reconfigured for the List Gallery, Swarthmore College by Andrea Packard, List Gallery Director.
