Gwen Magee at work on her abstract design Bolero. An extraordinary artist working in fiber, Magee (1943–2011) produced powerful abstract and narrative works in the medium of quilts. Magee's art, which she came to in midlife, was informed by her childhood in a creative home, her education in the social sciences, participation in the civil rights movement, careers in social work and business, and her experiences as a wife, mother, and grandmother.

Nov 20, 2010 - the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston opens the new Americas Wing - and one of the pieces on display was the Harriet Powers' Pictorial Quilt, which had not been on display in nearly 10 years! I saw it in person - and it was a magnificent sight! Have you ever seen this quilt in person? Would you like to? Leave a comment and let me know! Best, Kyra
