Exploring the Quilts of Peggie Hartwell
January 8 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Drawing upon her experiences growing up in rural South Carolina, Peggie Hartwell’s quilts are largely autobiographical. While they detail her life and family, they also feature the lives of South Carolina farmers from whom she descended. Growing up during the 20th century, added inspiration comes from African American folklore and history that has happened over her lifetime. The color and movement in her quilts draw from her many years as a dancer in New York and abroad. As an artist and educator, she works with young people to tap into their memories and to express their voices on cloth. This exhibition weaves together a patchwork of places and people whose lives and lessons she believes are important to tell.
