Stories of West Africa @ National Quilt Museum

Friday, April 12, 2019 - to

The National Quilt Museum

The Quilt Museum is very excited to announce the opening of the exhibit Hollis Chatelain- Stories of West Africa.  Hollis is one of the most respected and admired quilters in the world for her amazing detail and ability to create people that are lifelike and emote. This exhibition is Hollis Chatelain’s personal interpretation of everyday life in West Africa. Having lived in this part of the world for twelve years, her approach is one of observation and respect. Hollis’ choice of medium relates to her background and the culture she encountered. Her use of textiles conveys the warmth of this society. The quilting becomes the heart and soul of the people and is the key to her interpretation.
