Textural Rhythms: Constructing the Jazz Tradition opens at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco January 27, 2011 – April 24, 2011
Textural Rhythms, curated by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, Founder and Coordinator of The Women of Color Quilters Network unites two of the most well known and popular artistic forms in African American culture, jazz and quilts.
The exhibition of 64 quilts includes work from some of America’s best known African American quilters, Michael Cummings, Edjohnetta Miller, Tina Brewer, and Jim Smoote as well as quilts by top Bay Area quilters, Marion Coleman and Alice M. Beasley. I am humble to be in such company. Do check out their websites to see what I'm talking about and if you are in the area visit go to the exhibit or you can purchase a copy of the exhibit catalog (below).
