Dancing with the Wall
March 9 – June 13, 2020  

Central Library Gallery | 710 W. César Chávez St.

The artworks of Irene Roderick are Art made in the tradition of Fine Art that is based on individual creativity and unique personal expression. They are also Quilts made in the Craft tradition of utilitarian bed covers incorporating small pieces of fabric sewn together into a larger sheet. Roderick’s works join the centuries old conversation of whether quilts can be considered as fine art or remain firmly in the craft tradition. She works fluidly between these conversations, embracing both traditions with nonchalance to receive approvals for her creativity from anyone.  See the exhibit here.
