Greetings All,
And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations features works by contemporary artists from the Women of Color Quilters Network. Curated by Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, the exhibition narrates nearly four centuries of African American history from 1619 through today. Over 50 artists, including Carolyn Crump of Houston, and Barbara Ann McCraw of Denton, Texas are represented. The artists’ unique works draw on the enduring American tradition of visual storytelling through the textile art of quilting.  The work below was created by Julius J. Bremer and is titled In Memory of Jessie.
