If love is a feeling and care is an action, they are always engaged in conversation. As we navigate our lives, these conversations become increasingly important in shaping our stories. Drawing on personal lived experiences as archival knowledge of histories and possible futures, our identities are forged through our relationships with one another. Friends & Lovers explores the ways in which care, vulnerability & intimacy contribute to our sense of community. Who are you in love with? And how?

Quilts from Margaret Anglin
Opens: Jan. 18, 1-4pm
Jan 18 - Feb. 1, 2020
(Main Floor Gallery)
Please join the children of Margaret Anglin for the opening of Quilted Histories, an exhibit celebrating Margaret's life and work. Margaret was an extremely skilled, innovative
and prolific quiltmaker, who adapted the traditional media and techniques of quiltmaking to tell her life story. On September 4th 2019, Margaret lost her courageous battle with cancer, and these quilts remain as treasured family heirlooms and an artistic legacy. Together, her quilts form a kind of chronicle, set down in collage-like quilts that weave together the objects, animals, books, people, places and ideas that shaped her family's stories. A selection of
her quilts will be exhibited in Quilted Histories, and a handmade zine featuring photos and stories will be available to attendees.
