Opening Reception: African American Quilt Circle

African American Quilt Circle

August 9 – September 4, 2016

 

For the month of August, the Michael and Laura Brader-Araje Community Outreach Gallery will feature the work of local artists in the African American Quilt Circle (AAQC) in Durham, NC. The quilts made by the AAQC feature traditional block-quilting, original designs, and fiber art, quilted by hand as well as by machine. The AAQC is committed to preserving the tradition of quilting in the black community and takes seriously its dedication to community education and outreach.

AAQC members will be present to discuss their work and the quilting traditions that inspire them.
