Just wanted to let everyone know the Black Watermen of the Chesapeake quilt will be making its Maryland debut post-dedication this Saturday at the Banneker-Douglass Museum. Actually it will be hung tomorrow (Friday) morning and on display on March 19-20 ONLY! The quilt exhibit is part of the museum's contribution to the Maryland Day celebrations going on throughout Annapolis and southern Anne Arundel County over the weekend. On Saturday, the museum will show a one hour documentary on the black watermen of the Chesapeake Bay and fingers crossed some of the film's stars will be on hand to talk about the documentary afterwards. If you would like to come see the quilt and possibly meet the artist herself, come on by at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.
For a second chance to meet Dr. Gaither and hear about her work, join us at the Annapolis Barnes and Noble at 2:00 p.m. this Sunday, March 21. She will give a talk on her quilt I Am, currently on display at the bookseller. You might even get a chance to preview one of the quilts she is currently working on. If you can't make the artist talk, her quilt will be on display at Barnes and Noble until the end of the month.
