Event Description

Quilts do more than warm you up on a chilly night. They tell stories exploring current events, biblical parables, memories, nature, and so much more. 

Experience the exciting storytelling tradition of quilt making illustrated by Faith Ringgold and other artists. 

You will be looking at the formalistic and narrative approach to this beautiful art form.

Ray Horner Jr. will share from the perspective of a working artist and what he sees in the story telling narrative of representational artists. 

Horner Jr. is currently an art instructor at the Newark School of the Arts, and an adjunct professor at Kean University.
