On Exhibit Now

Quilt making is a big tent with room for lots of styles, techniques and materials and sources of inspiration. The McLean Textile Gallery is delighted to welcome Kathleen Otoo and Ekua Ankuma to our three galleries for November. Their Ghanian heritage is reflected in their use of colorful African fabrics. Each has lived in Northern Virginia for years, rubbing shoulders with the local Virginian quilt making traditions. The result is colorful, abstract pieced quilts and striking fabric portraits of people and animals. What a treat to see the creativity of these two friends filling the rooms with joy.

Come and see for yourself - through December 1st.
