Artist Talk with Quilter Veronica Mays
August 23, 2022 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm Newport Art Museum
Veronica Mays is a fiber artist who loves to design and create art quilts that reflect her heritage. As a 2018 Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Grant recipient, she created art quilts for the Dr. Martin Luther King Center, The Newport County Branch of the NAACP, Mixed Magic Theater and The Rhode Island Black Heritage Society. She is also a 2019 recipient of an Assets for Artists grant from the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Although she learned to quilt while living in Fairbanks, Alaska in 2004, she has been quilting in earnest for the past six years. Working with fabric places her in a zone of peace and joy! Mays notes, “As an artist, I love the process of developing and executing an idea. I am partial to using African-inspired fabric to create pieces that reflect my culture. Portrait quilts are a particular interest of mine.”
The Museum is pleased to welcome Veronica Mays to share her work in conjunction with the current exhibition Velvet & Silk: The Palmer Family Quilts.
FREE, RSVP requested.
This event was made possible with a grant from the John Clarke Trust, Bank of America, N.A., Co-Trustee
