Coming Together: Artistic Traditions of the Quilt and the Print

Drawn entirely from the recently acquired Paulson Fontaine Press Archive, Coming Together features prints by the quilters centered in Gee’s Bend, Alabama including Louisiana Bendolph, Mary Lee Bendolph, Loretta Bennett, and Loretta Pettway. Due to light-exposure issues, the prints have appeared in two rotations, the first from June to November 2017 and the second from November to May 2018. The gallery also includes prints by Lonnie Holley, a friend and fellow Alabama artist, who created prints at the Berkeley press in 2013 and 2017.
