Craftivism, Needles for Change

Exhibit opening in the Knauer Gallery February 27th 2023 through April 10th, 2023

The Quilt; piecing together family, history, and love.

On display from October 25 through December 12, 2021 in the John H. Baker Gallery in the E. O. Bull Center for the Arts, WCUPA. 

No longer seen solely as an object of warmth and protection, quilts are a tactile and powerful reminder of our history. Quilts have become works of art and their makers are artists.  Quilts tell a story, capture a moment and connect us to each other. The quilts on display have a story to tell or hold a special memory.  In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, these artifacts explore the relationship of quilts to family, history, and comfort.    Curated by Constance Case.

Textile Artists: Janice Bradley, Amy Eckert, Doris Field, Deborah L. Pederson, Sickora Family, Ellen Seiger Krammes, Megan Ramer, Roma Bretz Sieger,  Gail C. Thorwart a.k.a. Mammy,  and the Amish Quilters of Perry County, PA

The Art of Design, Building the Character

In January of 2016 I curated a costume exhibit in the John H. Baker Gallery in West Chester, Pennsylvania. The purpose of this exhibit was to show the correlation between the elements and principles of design and the character that is presented to the audience through the costume. This exhibit  represented the work of five talented costume designers while exploring how design choices consciously and subconsciously indicate who the wearer is.
