Unbound: Quilters and Artists Redefine Quilts
Babson College - Hollister Gallery
September 11 - November 5
Artist Talk and Reception: September 18 at 5:00pm
This is an exhibit of non-traditional quilters and artists who use quilting processes in their work. Jan Johnson speaks specifically to memory-forgetting relative to her daughter and grandmother. Andrew Mowbray teaches at Wellesley and makes quilts from Tyvek.  Kyung Ae Cho sews natural elements such as leaves and stems into the quilt and allows them to dry and decompose, so there is a strong temporal element to the work. Kathryn Clark sews quilts about America's housing foreclosure crisis.  Chawne Kimber's quilt is an homage to Trayvon Martin.

  1. I just saw this on the Babson website and got excited. I'm planning on checking it out at the end of the month if anyone wants to join me.
