PAUL KOVARIK: STITCHED DISSENT
Beverly and Sam Ross Gallery (Christian Brothers University) / 650 East Parkway S. January 10, 2020 - February 12, 2020
Stitched Dissent, an exhibition by Paul Kovarik, will be on display from January 10 through February 12 in the main gallery. Through the medium of cloth and stitch quilts can tell stories, protest injustice and document history. Kovarik quilts in order to piece, layer, and stitch a narrative that represents her concern for what is going on in our country. Her art reflects American anxiety in a world of danger and distrust. It mirrors the ominous overtones of decisions disconnected from everyday life and the feeling that we are helpless in the wake of unmoored leadership. This body of work adds to the fundamental conversation going on in our media, our families, and our government.
