Since the early twentieth century, the Quilters of Gee's Bend - a small Black community in Alabama - have created hundreds of patchwork masterpieces. Their imaginative and boundary-pushing work constitutes a crucial achievement in the history of American art. These decks feature quilts by Qunnie Pettway and Loretta Pettway.
The vibrant colors, playful geometric shapes, and organic improvised patterns that define the Gee’s Bend quilting aesthetic have garnered increasing attention and admiration in recent years.
