Yvonne Wells - Quilt Exhibit catalog

I recently received a copy of "Yvonne Wells: An Exhibition of Quilts" from a past show at the Rosa Parks Library and Museum in Troy, AL. WOW! This 24-page full color catalog features 19 different story quilts by Mrs. Wells. Seven of the quilts "depict the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, anger, envy and pride." These quilts were made between July 2005 and March 2006. The other twelve quilts in the show were made from 2000 and 2001. Contributing summaries to the catalog were written by Georgette M. Norman, Director Troy University Rosa Parks Museum and Georgine Clarke, Visual Arts Program Manager, AL State Council of the Arts. The museum contact information is: Rosa Parks Library and Museum, 252 Montgomery St., Montgomery, AL 36104. Phone: 334/241-8661.
