Carberry Gallery presents "Legacy," by Philadelphia fiber artist Dindga McCannon.

In celebration of Black History Month, the gallery presents McCannon’s elaborate and colorful quilt designs highlighting the many women of color who have made significant contributions to the history of African Americans. Examples from this exhibition entitled, “Legacy,” include the 1930’s trumpeter Valaida Snow to master dancer and choreographer of the 50’s and 60’s Lavinia Williams to the great Maya Angelou, writer, poet and civil rights activist. All quilts are made of wool and fiber that has been felted, hand-embroidered and beaded into intricate quilt designs.
