TAPESTRIES & WALL PANELS

The Quilts of Gee's Bend
(traveling)
The 70 quilts in the exhibition, created by 45 women, provide a fascinating look at the work of 20th-century artists who lived and worked in solitude. Gee´s Bend is located in southwest Alabama on a sliver of land five miles long and eight miles wide, a virtual island surrounded by a bend in the Alabama River. The quilters´ use of motifs, techniques, and textiles endured and evolved over the course of the century. They were motivated to create the quilts by the need to keep their families warm, and they used rags and scraps of fabrics from their everyday lives—corduroy, denim, cotton sheets, and well-worn clothing. Like many American quilters, they transformed a necessity into a work of art—but their bold, innovative approach to design is unique

Two Visionaries: Frances Abell Brand and Molly Upton
Museum of American Quilter's Society (KY) now - March 8,2003

The quilts made by Frances Abell Brand represent 26 years of her work, 1974 to 2002. Her quilts are a natural growth and extension of her early work studying and perfecting the techniques found in early American decoration. It is here that we see the love of traditional elements, adapted from historical designs, reinterpreted in fabrics found in quilts but those necessary to serve her purpose.

Three years of Molly Upton's work are represented in this exhibit, 1974 to her death at age 23 in 1976. Her quilts spring from her own need and creative passion. Before quilting had a chance to take a firm hold and become a revival, Molly was using fabric to express her unique creative ideas. She created quilts that have survived and are as vibrant and powerful today as when they were created in the 1970's.
