Quilted Histories:

Margaret Anglin

Curators: Ellie Angin & Emmy Anglin | Jan 18 - Feb. 1, 2020

An exhibit celebrating Margaret Anglin's life and work, with loving curation by her daughters, Ellie and Emmy Anglin. 

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 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 was made available to attendees.
