Lesley Riley is a fiber artist and visually poetic storyteller. The textiles in Bearing Witness: Civil War Story Quilts are inspired by comprehensive research of both familiar and uncelebrated men and women from the era. Historic photographs that have been enlarged and enhanced create compelling images. Through fabric, color and composition, Lesley draws you in, bringing their stories to life while shedding new light on America's past.
