From kitschy grandma crafts (literally some of our grandmother’s needlework), to works of art created with the simplest of tools, needle and thread. Explore the timeless feminine act of creating beauty.
Christine has scouted Tulsa estates for these treasures – pieces of embroidery, weavings, latch hooks, crewel, tatted pieces, intricate crochet, quilts, screen printed linens, and other textiles made with human hands. “I find great beauty in these pieces and knowing that a woman from a previous generation devoted hours of her time and herself to create these works of art that are now often discarded or sold for mere pennies at estate sales”. Finding them in estates is often delightful and and at the same time melancholy because these should be pieces that are treasured by younger generations. Christine often purchases them to make sure they have a home with someone who understands the time spent and cherishes the handiwork of her grandmother’s generation and the beauty that is passed down with these pieces. Included in this collection is an embroidered piece by Christine’s grandmother, and a weaving from her great-aunt, a lifelong fine artist who recently passed away. The collection will be on display throughout November.
Join us on Friday November 3rd, 6-9pm for the opening celebration of our November show.
