PARTISAN PIECES:

QUILTS OF POLITICAL AND PATRIOTIC PERSUASION

An exhibition from the International Quilt Museum

Presented by Carolyn Ducey

It is often said, “Politics makes for strange bedfellows.” By extension, it can be said that politics makes for sometimes strange, and always interesting, bedcovers. The nineteenth- and twentieth-century quilts in Partisan Pieces: Quilts of Political and Patriotic Persuasion illuminate the progress of U.S. political development from the perspective, and from the needles, of well-informed and patriotic women.

SALVAGED:

The Stitched Narratives of Jennifer Regan

An exhibition from the New England Quilt Museum

The patchwork narratives of Jennifer Regan, which she often referred to as “subversive stitchery,” explores the simultaneous dualities of life: triumph and tragedy, mourning and celebration, death and rebirth. Deeply influenced by nineteenth century figurative and pictorial quilts, her work is either figurative or map-like, containing tiny figures in story landscape.
