When you read a work of art is quilt art, you think you know what you’ll see. Not if the work in question is by Heather Jones. She adds in feminism, geometric shapes and history to get a broader narrative. Being “interested in the historical and socio-political relationship between women and textiles, including women’s work and issues of domesticity” led her to African art. “My current body of work investigates the influence of African traditional patchwork on American patchwork from the South and how traditions connect us with our ancestors.” The gallery is also featuring new work by Lexington artist Patrick Smith.
