We love Listen to Your Mother by Jean Ray Laury. The comic book style is certainly one way of drawing a child's attention, even if they don't listen to the advice.

Listen to Your Mother was part of The California Art Quilt Revolution: From the Summer of Love to the New Millennium exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles in 2017. To see more of the exhibit, scroll passed the pictures.

Here's what the museum wrote about the exhibit:

The studio art quilt was the result of a complex intersection of art, craft, universities, and the traditional American quilt. Three national cultural developments resulted in the re-evaluation of quilts as a suitable art medium and increased artists’ awareness of quilts: the art museum’s legitimization of the quilt as art, the junction of art and craft at the university level and social political and fashion trends that brought quilts to national prominence. 

California artists were among the first to embrace the quilt medium as their primary means of expression and charted new territory in art and quilt making, leading the nation in creativity and innovation. The art quilt pioneers transformed a functional domestic object into an art form and inspired subsequent generations of quilt artists.  Their legacy continues in the work of today’s artists, who are reinterpreting the quilt medium with non-traditional materials and pushing the boundaries of what can be called a quilt.



Here are a few more tidbits from the exhibit.

Too bad this exhibit was 2 years ago . We are fortunate to have this museum within an hours drive in the SF bay area.

:lol: I used to think my Mom was nagging me when I was a child, UNTIL, the day I opened my mouth and my Mom was speaking. She knew what she was talking about!!!! ;-)

Thanks, TQS, for sharing this with us. The themes are poignant, given today’s political culture.
