African Nova Scotian Narrative and Picture Quilts at UNB Art Centre

I visited the University of New Brunswick’s Arts Centre to see THE SECRET CODES: African Nova Scotian Narrative and Picture Quilts this past Friday morning and was incredibly moved by the vision and skill in these works of art. The exhibition runs at the art centre until February 28th.

I have previously posted this video from Imagining History: A Canadian Women Artists History Initiative Conference, (May 3-5 2012) held at Concordia University, but it I feel that it bares repeating here.
