About this event
For thirty years, the Oakland-based, self-taught quilter Alice Beasley has spoken out on issues and events that are meaningful to her through her figurative appliqué quilts.
Join us for the premiere episode of TAC’s Artist Series by the filmmaker Mark Haffenreffer. The film captures Alice at work, her process and inspirations. It also tells the story of how she came to quilting and fabric portraiture, and the themes in her work, including her family history and expressions of the Black Experience in the United States.
Following the viewing of the film, there will be a conversation between the artist and fellow fiber artist Mirka Knaster. Alice and Mirka will discuss in depth selected pieces of Alice’s works, their context, and messages. The two artists will also discuss their separate but mutual paths to artistic expression.
This program is the first in the Textile Arts Council’s Artist Series profiling living San Francisco Bay Area fiber artists.
Paid attendees will have access to a recording of the event for seven days.
