March 23 – April 29, 2004

Legacy Maltwood (at Mearns Centre – McPherson Library)

An exhibit featuring textile works by Joanna Rogers that explore the unwritten histories of women. Under Wraps incorporates historical patterns of both men and women’s garments.

Rogers says,

“In Under Wraps, clothes are used to represent history; and quilting patterns represent the whole of women in history. The stitch becomes the symbol for the written word.”
