Patten Free Library will host Georgetown fiber artist Susan Hess for a discussion and display of ‘Miniature Echoes Through the Art of the Gee’s Bend Quiltmakers’
The show will run from July 20 to July 26th in the Community Room. The talk and reception will take place on Saturday, July 22. Inspired by the exhibit of the quilts at the Philadelphia Art Museum in 2008, the life stories of the women of Gee’s Bend, and the recent pandemic and social unrest, Susan has replicated the ten stamps in miniature using weaving and embroidery techniques. Susan’s exhibit and program endeavor to share how creative imagination can reorient the societal, cultural and personal considerations of one’s awareness.
