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.
