Quilted Histories: Margaret Anglin
January 18 - February 1, 2020
Curators: Ellie Anglin & Emmy Anglin
An exhibition that celebrated Margaret Anglin's life and work, with loving curation by her daughters, Ellie and Emmy Anglin. Margaret was an extremely skilled, innovative and prolific quilt maker, who adapted the traditional media and techniques of quilt making 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 formed a kind of chronicle, set down in collage-like forms that weave together the objects, animals, books, people, places and ideas that shaped her family's stories. A selection of her quilts were exhibited in Quilted Histories, and a handmade zine featuring photos and stories were thereafter made available to attendees.
