October 21–November 19: The Skin Quilt Project will be featured in the upcoming exhibition entitled, Hearts, Hands & Heritage: The Patchwork Soul of Women:
This quilt exhibition is produced and curated by Skin Quilt Project participant and Rice University Ph.D. student, Aundrea Matthews. A reception and panel discussion consisting of leading scholars and practitioners of the art of quilting represent two of the event’s primary offerings. The exhibit will introduce visitors to a collection of powerful works of art that illuminate both the spiritual and personal experiences of women. The goal of the exhibition is to illustrate a broad range of artistic techniques and inspirations, shed light on the lives and experiences of quiltmakers, and examine the role women have played in education, politics, religion, the arts, business, the family and much more.
