HOUSE QUILTS: THE ENERGY THAT SPEAKS OF HOME

Michael Ross

Sanger Gallery 

After returning to his childhood home in Mississippi several years ago, Michael Ross began a series of handmade fabric quilts that take the shape of houses, which hang and suspend from the ceiling. Each of these hanging quilted houses is designed with cords that can be cinched to transform them into capes or cloaks that can drape over the body. As an installation, they serve as a powerful metaphor for how we alter, affect and influence the places that we call home, just as they do to us, and for how we travel through the world carrying our homes on our shoulders.

EAT A PEACH

Sandra Williams

XOJ Gallery 

Throughout the pandemic, Williams thought critically about all the expressions of love–romantic, familial, spiritual, platonic, self-love. The papercuts she created in this time depict love as a constant and defining element of the human experience.

ANYWHERE BUT INSIDE MY HEAD

B Lucy Stevens

Zabar Project Gallery 

Stevens invites audiences into the intricate and intimate workings of her mind. 30 years worth of doodles explore her experiences with anxiety, depression, motherhood, marriage, and divorce. Funny or grief-stricken, each piece is real and raw.
