Circle Back, by Tina William Brewer

Coding: We Are Always There
Exhibition of fiber art by Tina Williams Brewer, the Mavuno 2015 Artist-in-Residence

September 25 - November 6, 2015
Reception: Friday, September 25, 6:00 - 9:00 PM 

Reception coincides with the Sewickley Fall Gallery Walk

We are the cosmic dust that carries DNA through time and space. This journey strives to enlighten the collective struggles with dignity and respect with images of African ancestral aesthetics.


As cited by Daniel Tesidor Parker in, Art of the African Diaspora, "We seek pride in heritage and a vision of prosperity for our people." * Artist Tina Williams Brewer seeks to illuminate the context of the African culture by gathering and manipulating historic images to create a story board of photographs with each quilt. The labyrinth she designs with photos and quilts gives the viewer an opportunity to stop, meditate, and decode the collage  of the symbols in each quilt.  

Williams Brewer combines her vision with photographs from oral historian, John Brewer, and world traveler, Bill Double. This artistic approach gives the viewer an opportunity to decode and unlock the seeds of greatness by changing the frequency of contemporary imagery.  Lift the cosmic dust and let the change begin.  
(*Inspiration from Dr. Margaret Taylor Gross Burroughs)



Tina Williams Brewer and Bill Double will be presenting an Artist Talk

on Saturday, October 24th from 6:30-8:00pm.
