From Heart to Hand: African American Quilts from the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts

The exhibition includes examples of pieced quilts and appliqué, as well as the improvisational techniques use of unconventional materials that are common practice for contemporary quilt makers. The quilts are grouped within three sections: “Tradition: Patterns from the Past,” “Improvisation: Practical Invention,” and “An Unconventional Canvas: The Quilts of Yvonne Wells.” The exhibition sections are designed to introduce traditional patterns, and to show the improvisations upon these patterns that distinguish the work of individual quilters. Modern quilt making is exemplified by a group of outstanding narrative quilts by Tuscaloosa quilt maker Yvonne Wells.The exhibition is organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.
