SOUTHERN MASTERS II: Marion “Pinky” Bass, Ruth Miller, & Miriam N. Omura

SOUTHERN MASTERS II:

Marion “Pinky” Bass, Ruth Miller, & Miriam N. Omura

February 6 – July 5, 2020

In this exhibition, three artists living and working in the South—Marion “Pinky” Bass, Ruth Miller, and Miriam N. Omura—dissect, manipulate, and push the historically feminine domestic practices of sewing, weaving, embroidery, applique, and crochet into new territory. These artists are masters of their medium who have developed labor-intensive creative processes over many years, and created work that is anything but domestic or traditional. Each artist, with her own unique voice and background, explores themes of identity, culture, race, aging, and inner reflection. This exhibition presents a selection of work from throughout their careers that embodies these themes.
