AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY LEGACY (AAHL)™ JURIED QUILT EXHIBITION

“NEVER, EVER FORGET” AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY: THE MIDDLE PASSAGE AND BEYOND™

Aug 4, 2017 to Aug 26, 2017

At the Brickhouse 2837 36th St, Sacramento, CA 95817

Featured Quilt Artist: Alice Beasley

Fabric is my chosen medium of expression through which I create realistic portraits of people and objects. I find color, light, shadow, line and value in the pattern of ordinary household fabrics. From these I snip small pieces which I arrange and fuse into a figurative composition. As such the work grows from within rather than being applied to the surface of a canvas by paint, pencil or similar drawing tools. When the image is complete, I sew it together with the stitch line constituting the final “drawn” line.
