Amazing Wonders: Quilts by African Americans of the Northern California Region
Amazing Wonders: Quilts by African American of the Northern California Region is a celebration of quilt-making in the various traditional and nontraditional ways that the art has survived into the twenty-first century, and serves as a testament that the craft is still very much alive and well. For Amazing Wonders, in addition to working closely with Oakland’s African American Quilter’s Guild as well as local guilds here in Sacramento, Folsom and Elk Grove, the 40 Acres Art Gallery is pleased to be collaborating with UC Davis’ Richard L. Nelson Gallery, which will be simultaneously presenting an exhibit of African American quilts from a private collection. Curated by Felicenne Ramey and gallery director Renny Pritikin, the exhibit will be on view in Davis from September 24 – December 13, 2009, and will feature quilts from the collections of Avis C. Robinson of Washington, D.C. and Sandra McPherson of Davis.
