Textile artist Amy Meissner gathers cast-off and salvaged women’s handwork, household textiles, and found objects. In these artifacts, she sees the tracings of women’s knowledge, decisions, and intentions. Her quilted art made for vertical display, which incorporates these objects, emerges as an amalgam of traditional handwork and female points of view, of historic roles and contemporary complaints, which serve to expose women’s emotional, physical, and literal labor.
