The quilters art at Dundalk college

January 27, 2000|By Glenn McNatt

Opening Tuesday at the Dundalk campus of the Community College of Baltimore County is "Images of Black Women," an exhibition of quilts by five fabric artists whose colorful, imaginatively constructed works are inspired by nature, personal experience, philosophical beliefs and family and cultural history.

Baltimore quilter Barbara Pietila, who co-curated the show with Janet Waters Bailey, also of Baltimore, says that quilting expresses the artists' "love of all things made of fiber."

Other artists represented in the show are Carole Y. Lyles of Columbia, Adrianne M. Sanchez of Baltimore and Sandra Smith of Silver Spring. An artists' reception will be held at the gallery Feb. 4 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

"Images of Black Women" runs Feb. 1-27. The CCBC Dundalk Gallery is in the College Center Building at 7200 Sollers Point Road. Hours are Mondays-Fridays 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 410-285-9792.
