Day 99: Mary Vaneecke

 Desconocidos is part of the Migrant Quilt Project, and will travel with nine other quilts around the country, including to the New England Quilt Museum and the International Quilt Study Museum in Nebraska.
 
(White) Silence is Violence will debut at the Studio Art Quilt Associates’ Loaded Conversations exhibition this spring at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.  The slogan is borrowed from the Black Lives Matter movement and asks white people to consider their complacency about the killing of unarmed black men and boys by police.
My latest work, Yes, I have been Mending is inspired by the visible mending movement and Hazel Hall’s poem, Mending. It ends, Yes, I have been mending… but also, I have been enacting a little travesty on life.
