On view January 4-25, 2024
Friends new and old are invited to join us for this month’s First Thursday Open House event, when we keep our lights on late and throw our doors open to celebrate the newest work in our galleries. Stop in to say hello, relax with a glass of wine on the rooftop terrace, tour the third floor artist studios and see the just-installed exhibitions in the Sanger, XOJ, Zabar Project and Zabar Lobby Galleries. Books & Books is the next stop, where you can browse the latest titles and catch up with old friends.
Jestrow connects to a larger tradition of American women quilters and feminist practice, using art quilts as powerful tools for economic survival and social resistance. She combines rust from oxidizing nuts, bolts, and screws saved from an old family barn, with plant materials from her kitchen and garden to create a range of lightfast colors. The resulting colors of the “Americana Quilts” reflect the varied flesh tones representative of the American population and our combined histories. Alongside the skin tones are the colors and textures of the American landscape. Various textures are created employing traditional Shibori and tie-dyeing techniques.
