On September 11th Babson College unveiled an exhibit of non-traditional quilters and artists who use quilting processes in their work. The diverse showcase, running through November 1st, features unexpected materials and methods such as embroidery representing a brain scan, patch-worked Tyvek, and leaves stitched in silk. A panel discussion and opening reception will take place on September 18th from 5- 7 p.m. in Babson’s Hollister Gallery.
The exhibit features the work of 5 artists including Jan Johnson, Andrew Mowbray, Kyoung Ae Cho, Kathryn Clark, and Chawne Kimber. Collectively, the artists’ backgrounds range from sculpture and painting to urban planning and mathematics. Each person uses unconventional materials and quilting’s association with domesticity, in order to push the boundaries of the medium and address larger issues and concepts such as the US foreclosure crisis, contemporary gender roles, inter-generational connections, racial identity, social justice, and our relationship to nature.
