February 19th – Celeste Janey at the New England Quilt Museum (Lowell, MA)

“My Art Quilting Journey”

by Celeste Janey

Saturday, February 19th at 1:00 PM 

As an elementary school educator for 34 years, I find that in my pieces, I need to continue teaching. All my pieces teach, whether through the written word, or orally through the story in which the piece was inspired. Continuing the African-American culture of which I was born, my pieces are usually vibrant in color and life. All my pieces share a story with the observer.  --Celeste Janey
