Visitors to Brookgreen Gardens can now see an exhibition of fiber artworks by African American artists from across the country and curated by Torreah “Cookie” Washington. SANKOFA: The 14th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition, will be on display until November 25th.
Curated by Washington, this annual juried exhibit showcases works in fiber created by African American artists from across the country. The 14th installment of this traveling exhibition features fiber art pieces from 23 artists who were challenged to create a pictorial fiber artwork interpreting the Adinkra symbol of Sankofa, and its associated proverb to “reach back and get it.” The Sankofa images are a reminder to use the wisdom of the past to aid one in the present moment. The artists were asked to include one Sankofa in each artwork. The exhibit will feature 27 pieces of art, including three dolls and 24 quilts/wall hangings. Exhibiting artists include Aisha Lumumba, Carolyn Brackat, Washington, Janette Holland, Edith Gross, Joyce Daniels, and Renee Fleuranges-Valdes.
The exhibit will be on display in the Lowcountry Center Auditorium daily from noon – 4:30 pm. For more information, visit www.brookgreen.org.
