Past Event: Alice Beasley Speaks Friday in Oakland

Alice Beasley has exhibited her quilts at many of EBHQ's "Voices in Cloth" shows.  She has a current show at the Joyce Gordon Gallery in Oakland.  The gallery is holding a special event from 6 to 9 pm this Friday as part of this exhibit.  Ms. Beasley will be speaking at the gallery this Friday at 7 pm; her talk will be moderated by Nancy Bavor, who is the  Curator of Collections at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.

The exhibit, entitled "Loss: Public/Private", examines absence and loss in both our private (life, aging, loneliness); and in our public lives (voting rights, gun violence, global financial crisis).

The Joyce Gordon Gallery is located at 406 14th St. in downtown Oakland; the gallery phone number is (510) 465-8928.
