An exhibition of selected works by Jeanne Bieri.
January 21 - March 18, 2022
Inspired by women who worked with and communicated in quilts, Mending is an exhibit that blends the deeply personal stories of our lives as individuals with the universal language of quilts and blankets. Mending is an ode to the art of the hand stitch; as Bieri’s work brings layers and patterns to army blankets and recycled materials, she is creating a story of making, restructuring, and mending. Through meticulous hand work and circulating patterns, Jeanne joins together the disparate elements of her work. The process of restoring and saving discarded elements and preserving the unique histories of the materials found in the tactile surfaces remain an inspiration in her daily work practice.

Communicating a sense of unity, sturdiness, and fusion through its manipulation of textiles and hand stitching, Mending can be viewed in the RC Art Gallery in East Quad from January 21 through March 18, 2022.

Jeannes's reception will take place at the RC Art Gallery on February 11, 4-6 pm.
