Patricia Yolande Ciricillo – wife, mother, nurse, activist, and quilter. After leadership roles in nursing and social justice advocacy for children and against racism, she found her creative voice in the fabric arts and the stunning results have been shown regionally and nationally.
This unique exhibit will be available March 17 – April 23, 2022. Reception will be held on Sunday, March 20 at 3pm at the Bernice Kish Gallery at Slayton House – 10400 Cross Fox Lane, Columbia, MD.
Featuring Esther Krinitz's Holocaust survival story exquisitely told through 36 hand-embroidered works, this exhibition pays tribute to humanity's long history, past and current, of unjustly persecuted innocents and the dream of a world at peace. A preamble to Esther's fabric collages include South African Truth and Reconciliation embroidered testimonies, work gathered from Lily Yeh's partnership with Rwandan Tutsi genocide survivors, and more.
