My Long time Coming Exhibit Artist Talk and Trunk Show



On December 3rd as part of the activities held in conjunction with my solo exhibit Long Time Coming: A Retrospective of O.V. Brantley's Red and White Quilts, I participated in an Artist Talk.

Center stage with Curator Tisha Smith during my Artist Talk

Curator of the exhibit Tisha Smith asked the questions. I answered the usual questions about influences and inspiration for my quilts. I discussed the autobiographical aspects of the exhibit.

My “Vanna White Helpers” show off “Choose to Bloom”.

However, the best part of my Artist Talk was my Trunk Show. I shared some of my prize winning quilts with the audience and some that are not winners, but simply my favorites.

One of my favorite quilts is “Strength and Grace.”

I think this was the best part of my Artist Talk. Quilters love to look at quilts!

Explaining the origin of “Crossett Courthouse Steps”, one of my earliest quilts.

As an added bonus, I shared my very first quilt! It is named O.V.'s Sampler, and it is sooo ugly. I hope it inspires others to believe that they too can become a quilter.

Long Time Coming continues through January 13th. I hope you will make plans to see it.
