Stitched Stories: The Family Quilts
Stitched Stories: The Family Quilts opens Thursday Sept 1 at 7PM at the Dalhousie Art Gallery (6101 University Ave., Halifax, Nova Scotia). The exhibition will be on display at the gallery until November 27.
Curated by Shauntay Grant, the exhibition features a handful of quilts selected by Grant from the heritage holdings of her family, prominently those of her grandmother, the Reverend Alfreda Smith. Grant’s own creative response to the quilts – and equally, the stories they keep – will produce a new ‘poetic patchwork’ developing inside the Gallery over the course of the exhibit.
