The Quilts of Gee’s Bend: The Fabric of Their Lives

Saturday, February 3, 2018

In honor of Black History Month, "The Quilts of Gee’s Bend: The Fabric of Their Lives, "is being exhibited at ArtGallery21. Formed in the isolated African American hamlet of Gee’s Bend, Alabama, in the early 20th century, this extraordinary group of women created the quilts to stay warm in winter using whatever fabrics and textiles were available to them. Ranging in age from 19 to 90, they have been recognized by the United States Postal Service, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City and the National Museum in Washington, DC, because their quilts symbolize the individuality of the quilters and their multi-generational approach to African American art and culture.
