|QUILTS: Memories of Braided Lives is on
exhibit now through October 20, 2002. This exhibition explores the
lifestyle and relationships among several generations of quilters
living in rural Broome County from the early 1800s to the mid 1900s.
Using oral histories, old photographs, and quilts, the exhibit:
Quilts: Memories of Braided Lives reconstructs the quilters’ daily
existence and the significance of self-expression in lives devoted
to domestic industry.
Leading lives shaped according to the pattern of days, weeks and
seasons, the women carried this sense of order into their quilts.
They also filled their work with common images, such as baskets,
stars and birds. With pattered fabric and color, they expressed
their creative imaginations through form movement and rhythm.
The quilts featured in the exhibit represent the life stories of
eight women quilters. They also represent the stories, visions and
worldviews of three closely intertwined families. By examining the
continuity and change across several generations, we can begin to
understand the values of simplicity and familiarity that are
reflected in their artistry.
