Description

Artist Talk: Wednesday, August 23 at 7 p.m.

Phyllis Stephens is an award-winning fifth generation quilt maker, considered by critics to be a Master of African-American Story Quilts where “sewing hands and tall tales flowed on in the same.” She travels frequently to Ghana, the fabric capital of the world, and was honored to exhibit at the Fine Art Museum of Ghana. This selection of quilted works of art is drawn from several private collections in the Atlanta metro area. Also on view will be her limited-edition portfolio and quilt storybook titled "For Crying Out Loud," a print portfolio documenting stories of ‘the stolen girls’ of the Civil Rights Movement.
