My Way: A Gathering in New York, NY

I was really quite taken with My Way: A Gathering, a group exhibition at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery in Tribeca. I have some friends who are quilt makers and really appreciate the art form. You can read about the show here.

It is always a treat to see Faith Ringgold’s work. I loved her show at the New Museum, and if you missed it, you can read the blog post here.

I have some beautiful quilts, that were my grandmothers, in storage bins in my attic. I probably should put them out into the world for someone to enjoy.
