This show, which was recently exhibited at the Gallery at Haskins Laboratory in New Haven, includes original photographs by DeLucco-Alpert paired with art quilts by Sisters in Cloth members.
Members were challenged to interpret a photograph into fabric. Each artist created two art quilts: an 18"x24" full view and an 8" detail. The art quilts are matted and framed to hang along side the photos that inspired them, creating a wonderfully cohesive visual display.
