Standing on the Shoulders of My Sisters:
Walking in the Shoes of Courage

“First Monday Gallery Night” – Opening Reception

March 5 from 6-7p.m.
Saul Alexander Gallery
Charleston County Main Library
68 Calhoun St.

 

This group quilt work exhibit pays homage to Women of the African Diaspora and their contributions to American society. With each stitch sewn and stroke of a paint brush, these works tells the story of their lives from “Ain’t I A Woman” Sojourner Truth, founding member of the NAACP, to Ida B. Wells, to presidential candidate and first African American woman elected to Congress Shirley Chisholm, to silhouettist Kara Walker.

 

As a reminder, we have extended our open submission period from February through September in hopes of receiving a more diverse array of art from folks in our community.
