Kathy Caraccio Gallery Talk

Kathy Caraccio Gallery Talk

Friday, June 21, 2019

Artist Kathy Caraccio will give a gallery talk on June 21 at 11 a.m. in her exhibition, on display in the Pumphrey Family Gallery at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum. Gallery talks are complimentary with admission and held during the museum's regularly scheduled docent-guided tours.

Caraccio has worked as a master printer in New York City for the last 42 years. A sampling of her "Quilt Series," made from 1972 through the early ’90s, depicts her explorations into color, pattern, symmetry, paper, and ink. These kaleidoscopic compositions gesture to Modernism and Abstract Expressionism, and to the American textile and folk art traditions that predated or ran parallel to them. Such was the milieu of an artist who came of age in the late twentieth century—a period we are increasingly being asked to consider as “history.”
