Gallery Talk: Memory Quilts

Saturday, March 26, 2022

At 1pm on March 26, 2022 in the JSAAHC Auditorium, Dr. Andrea Douglas talks with master quilter Deloris Jones Thomas, who fondly recalls the time spent as a child working on quilts with her mother. Nine years ago she returned to this practice to recall past memories and to create new ones of her own. A master quilter, Thomas researched old patterns, those associated with the Underground Railroad and ideas of her own making, to explore the relationship between color and form. The nine quilts included in Memory Quilts move beyond mere function to describe Thomas’s sense of her lived and remembered environs.

Please use the BOOK ONLINE button to reserve your seat. We are limiting it to 30 people in person.

The talk will be broadcast to Facebook and YouTube simultaneously. Sign ups for a master class with Ms. Thomas will be available. Date TBD.

Masks are required when visiting JSAAHC.
