Bold Expressions Show 2




Bold Expressions Show, a set on Flickr.
Here are some better photos of the Bold Expressions Show of African American Quilts from the collection of Corinne Riley, now showing at the Bellevue Arts Museum in Washington.

You can click on any of these to get to the Flickr set, or click here to see them all. There are 133 photos, including lots of close-ups. Enjoy the show!


Good news! The museum has ordered a reprinting of the book. They say they'll receive it "any day now." You can phone them to place your order. They'll ship anywhere. Here's the phone number (425) 519-0722.

Thanks for the photos. I have a great time looking at them all. I just love a few and then ask what were they thinking for a few others.

fantastic, thank you. I loved the close-up shots to see what kinds of fabric they used. wish there were a few more hands though so I could see how close the quilting lines were...

And a fabulous show it was. So happy to see your pictures. Not to be forgotten and I highly suggest to anyone in the area not to miss this! Have you been for another visit yet, Nifty? Sure wish I could

Wow! Love this so much. It inspires me to be even more free. It doesn't have to lay perfectly flat does it?
