Guns: Loaded Conversations
Today we find ourselves living in a society in which gun violence feels commonplace. Yet an enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun ownership and others who are concerned about the rising tide of gun violence.
Artists have been a catalyst for difficult societal conversations throughout history. Guns: Loaded Conversations seeks to engage viewers of differing opinions to listen to each other and to encourage community initiatives that may inspire action in seeking solutions.
Organized by SAQA, Studio Art Quilt Associates this exhibition features 33 art quilts by both national and international artists. The exhibition was juried by Dr. Vicky A. Clark, an independent curator and writer. She has assisted with Fiberart International exhibitions in cooperation with the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh, and has been a visiting curator and lecturer in the Textile Department at Goldsmiths, University of London.
She is also a professor of art history at the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, Chatham University, West Virginia University, and Clarion University.
