Story Quilts Come Home
Friday night I was very honored to finally meet the artist Marion Coleman at her wonderful exhibition at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art. Her exhibition grew from a collaboration, Pride in Place, between the Museum and the North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts at the University of North Texas.
Marion makes small quilts that combine history, photography, quilting, found objects and "thread writing." Every one has a story to tell. Some are based on personal memories; some are based on African-American history.
