About Memory Quilt-Collage:
Pnina Pressburger founded and developed the Artists Loop program. Since September 2015, The Artists Loop: Memory Quilt-Collage project, was led by Pnina Pressburger in collaboration with textile and collage artists to explore mixed media art making. Martha Jackson at Restored by Design reviewed her process working with fabric and Lauren Pearlman together with collage artists discussed working with special paper at Paper Connection International. We also visited RISD Museum to view a collage Romare Bearden (1911-88) led by curator Emily Peters following the screening and discussion of the documentary about this artist at the Weaver Library with artist/educator Keith Fox. Additional events further the idea for this upcoming Memory Quilt-Collage Exhibit.
