January 17—April 4, 2015Expressions in Equality

Opening Reception January 17, 5-7 pm.

"When I think of Martin Luther King, Jr., one thing comes to mind: equality. I'm not only referring to equality of humans based on their skin color, but the broad differences amongst us that people find challenging to accept and embrace," states Sheila Frampton-Cooper, curator for the exhibition, Expressions in Equality at Visions Art Museum: Contemporary Quilts + Textiles. The exhibition opens with a reception for the 25 artists on January 17th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Frampton-Cooper wants to bring attention to discrimination and the way society treats issues such as gender, age, sexual orientation, and economic inequality.

January 17—April 4, 2015Inspired by the Siddis: Quilts by Margaret Fabrizio

Opening Reception January 17, 5-7 pm.

After a career as a concert harpsichordist on the international stage and as music faculty at Stanford University for 25 years, artist Margaret Fabrizio discovered the kawandi (quilts) made by the Siddi women of Karnataka on a visit to India. After spending two weeks with the Siddi women in their settlement she became fascinated with their style of hand sewing quilts using scraps and recycled clothing. Fabrizio returned to her home in San Francisco and created 20 such quilts the following year using primarily fabrics from India. The Siddi women were astonished when she returned last year with fabric. Fabrizio continues to create quilts in the style of the Siddis.
