          Karen Hampton, Spirits Cry, 2000


Women, Art and Fibers: Contemporary Responses to Abolition and Journey North is a contemporary fiber arts exhibition that highlights works influenced or linked to the slave trade between New England and the South.  Stories of slavery have left traces on the work of these artists who stand in solidarity with the philosophies of Black Lives Matter.  

The exhibition is held in conjunction with International Women’s Month and Fiber Arts Month. Laurie Carlson Steger and Dr. Memory Holloway are guest curators.
