Places: A Celebration of the Human Hand: Works by Marilyn Henrion will feature 37 quilts from the now 90-year-old quilt artist who just relocated to Texas. She has seen many fascinating locations and recorded the sights in photographs which are stitched into works of art. You will be enthralled by what she has seen and what she has stitched.
“My aesthetic vision had always been deeply rooted in the urban geometry of my surroundings, from the earlier geometric abstractions to the more recent mixed media works,” Henrion offers.
“Whether at home or in my travels, I have been particularly interested in the co-existence of past and present, primarily in architecture and other man-made structures. The presence of the human hand upon the landscape expresses our eternal yearning for immortality, evidence that says 'I was once here.’”
