Virtual Exhibit at Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA)

Rosie Lee Tompkins: A Retrospective 

If time is a factor, watch the first 3 minutes of the video and save the rest for later.


"Rosie Lee Tompkins (1936–2006) is widely considered one of the most brilliant and inventive quiltmakers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Her reputation has grown to the point where her work is no longer considered solely within the context of quilting, but celebrated among the great American artistic achievements of our time."

I was fortunate to go to this exhibit in March just days ahead of the shelter in place order (and closure of most businesses). Nice to see and hear the exhibit again!

I am so appreciative of the work that was done on the Civil War Bride's Quilt. It is beautiful. Inspires me to get to work.
