From the Cedar Chest: Southern Quilting 1830s to Today

Quilt by Molly Price

September 13–December 14, 2019
Sara May Love Gallery

From the Cedar Chest: Southern Quilting 1830s to Today is an exploration of the rich tradition of quilting in our local Big Bend community, spanning several generations and cultures to celebrate the beloved art of quiltmaking. For two years, a committee of local quilters and quilt collectors and the Gadsden Arts curator researched and identified historic to contemporary quilts in private and public collections across several counties in North Florida. Several of the quilts have been completed by multiple family members over a period of decades as patterns were passed down to younger generations. This exhibition discusses the story of an art form that was utilitarian, uniquely cultural, and inherently social, that bridges gaps between generations and finds commonalities between cultures.

Lisa Qualls: These people are my people

August 24–October 26, 2019
Munroe Family Community Gallery

Alfie, from the Portrait Series by Lisa QuallsThis exhibition of Lisa Qualls' work is comprised of two portrait groupings and an installation. One portrait grouping is from Qualls’ ongoing “Southern Portrait Project”. Qualls travels across the South from North Carolina to Texas meeting people, photographing them and recording their stories. This exhibition will include a select grouping of portraits executed in graphite on claybord. These are monochromatic, almost photo-realistic drawings, with minimal backgrounds. The second portrait grouping is a suite inspired by quilters and seamstresses from the Quincy area and from Qualls' family. These are colorful and patterned portraits on panels. Family traditions of pattern design, textile making, dyeing and construction are celebrated by these works. The installation piece is titled "Duty to Memory". It is inspired by a photo album from the late 1940's from a Quincy area family. The installation is about American rural life; a lifestyle that continues through generations surviving hardships, natural disasters, market cycles and continues to flourish and be sustained despite the many obstacles.
