Dawn William Boyd: Scraps from My Mother's Floor, Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

The Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts at Wofford College is pleased to feature the work of figurative quilt painter, Dawn Williams Boyd through March 30, 2019.

 

Dawn Williams Boyd’s artwork reflects her interests in American history as it affects and is affected by its African American citizens. After 30 years painting in oils and acrylics on various surfaces, in 2002 Boyd began to 'paint' with fabric instead of on it. Her large scale ‘cloth paintings’ are representative, packed with vibrant, often life sized figures and are strategically embellished with beads, sequins, cowry shells and hand embroidery. Large pieces often take over 500 hours to complete. Through cutting, patching, surface embellishment and quilting, bits and pieces of fabric are transformed into modern visual storytelling.

Location: Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts
