Artist's talk

Chawne Kimber will give an artist’s talk "​When the Cotton is High: Social Justice and Textiles​” at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, July 9 in the Studio Theater, located in 248 North Third Street, Easton, Pa.

For centuries, women have used their utilitarian and decorative textile work to express their politics and opinions on issues of the day. Chawne Kimber will share some historical examples and then romp through her own work. Kimber's quilts use the lens of identity and difference to confront social conflicts like campus rape culture, Black Lives Matter, and censorship.

Special viewing hours on Tuesday, July 9: the Grossman Gallery will be open from 11 a.m. through 9 p.m.

The exhibition, reception, and talk are free and open to the public.
