Saturday March 8
Harmony Hall Gallery– 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
In Thoughtless, Patricia Autenrieth creates work by stitching together mediums as disparate as photographs, fabric and rubber stamps. The end result resembles what most people recognize as a quilt. An artistic pioneer, Autenrieth championed this medium long before it gained greater recognition in the art world through the advent of feminism and material studies.
