To state that Denise Mucci Furnish is a quilt artist is not entirely true. Nor it is correct to say she’s only a painter. But to combine the two — now we’re getting somewhere. She replaces the painter’s canvas with quilter’s cloth. “I paint and collage worn-out quilts and other hand-sewn domestic items,” she said. “What started out as a frustrated statement about the lack of visibility of women in the arts in 1980 has turned into my life’s work. Some of [‘New Paintings 2020 …’] was created over a span of several years, yet most of it was created or completed in this last year during a time of political, social, and medical unrest unprecedented in my lifetime.” The gallery is also showing works by Djawid Borower, John Brooks and Vian Sora. Masks and social distancing are required.
