Inspirations, Visions, and Traditions in Fiber Arts is a glance into a modern-day group of African American quilters and dollmakers who have joined together to create and enjoy Fiber Arts. This collection of beautiful quilts and dolls will lead you to turn page after page as you share the vision these artists have brought to fruition. Their personal stories will enable you to understand their fiery passion for the art. Because local guilds did not seem to understand the Black perspective, The African American Quilt and Doll Guild became a safe place for artists to freely express themselves and incorporate the history and stories stored in the hearts of African American fiber artists. They found the freedom to incorporate a different perspective of color, design and African Art in quilts. They have also used that same love of color to create Black cloth dolls that reflect the Black experiences in their lives and those of their families.The African American Quilt and Doll Guild and its' Storyteller members, honor Africans and African Americans by telling the history through quilts and dolls. The artistic images will grab your attention and a knowing smile will grace your lips when you sit back, relax and enjoy the craftsmanship of the artists.

In recent years, the study of textiles and culture has become a dynamic field of scholarship, reflecting new global, material and technological possibilities. This is the first handbook of specially commissioned essays to provide a guide to the major strands of critical work around textiles past and present and to draw upon the work of artists and designers as well as researchers in textiles studies. The handbook offers an authoritative and wide-ranging guide to the topics, issues, and questions that are central to the study of textiles today: it examines how material practices reflect cross-cultural influences; it explores textiles' relationships to history, memory, place, and social and technological change; and considers their influence on fashion and design, sustainable production, craft, architecture, curation and contemporary textile art practice. This illustrated volume will be essential reading for students and scholars involved in research on textiles and related subjects such as dress, costume and fashion, feminism and gender, art and design, and cultural history.

Rembrandt And The Inspiration Of India

This sumptuously illustrated volume examines the impact of Indian art and culture on Rembrandt (1606–1669) in the late 1650s. By pairing Rembrandt’s twenty-two extant drawings of Shah Jahan, Jahangir, Dara Shikoh, and other Mughal courtiers with Mughal paintings of similar compositions, the book critiques the prevailing notion that Rembrandt “brought life” to the static Mughal art. Written by scholars of both Dutch and Indian art, the essays in this volume instead demonstrate how Rembrandt’s contact with Mughal painting inspired him to draw in an entirely new, refined style on Asian paper—an approach that was shaped by the Dutch trade in Asia and prompted by the curiosity of a foreign culture. Seen in this light, Rembrandt’s engagement with India enriches our understanding of collecting in seventeenth-century Amsterdam, the Dutch global economy, and Rembrandt’s artistic self-fashioning. A close examination of the Mughal imperial workshop provides new insights into how Indian paintings came to Europe as well as how Dutch prints were incorporated into Mughal compositions.

In the Air tells stories of how the lives of Western Pennsylvanians are affected by the quality of the air that they breathe. Photographers, Brian Cohen, Scott Goldsmith, Lynn Johnson and Annie O'Neill, have documented some of the people and places that illustrate the issues associated with air quality. The images are accompanied by essays by Reid Frazier that expand on the social and environmental context to the visual work. The environmental, social and economic effects of air quality can hardly be overestimated, but are often hard to visualize. Comprised of these five voices, with distinct approaches and aesthetics, the team has gathered materials that describe the variety of issues at the heart of the subject, highlighting the relationship between the health of the community and the health of its environment.
