In her colorful collage creations, Evelyn Graves pays tribute to black culture’s musical contribution of jazz.  Fiber artist, Liz Cenedella, “paints” with fabrics, often collected from other cultures, to create quilts and wall hangings.  Florence Wint enjoys combining bold African fabrics with paint and other materials to make artworks that tell stories.
