February 9th Program

TRIBUTE TO THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT: 

QUILTED SWING COATS

By Patricia A. Montgomery

 

You won’t want to miss this exciting opportunity to meet Patricia A. Montgomery, MFA an Oakland, California-based textile and installation artist.  She will join us via Zoom to view her excellent video presentation and visit with us during a question/answer session.  In this video, Patricia discusses her extraordinary quilted swing coat series.  Synopsis:  “The Civil Rights Movement led by African Americans used nonviolent civil disobedience actions that transformed the United States and became a catalyst for other national and international civil disobedience actions that followed.  This movement started in the courts because African Americans wanted better lives that consist of equal opportunities in education, housing, employment, and transportation.  

Many African American women made major contributions to the Civil Rights Movement and these story quilts, created in the African American traditional quilting design and construction techniques, structured in the shape of a swing coat illustrating their stories.”

 

Be sure to visit Patricia’s website at:  https://civilrightsswingcoats.com/ to read her short biography and view her portfolio to learn about these women’s stories and see detailed swing coat images.

 

Note:  The GQG Program Committee received permission from both Patricia A. Montgomery and the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles to show this video presentation to our Guild.
