NC Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount, NC, Features Quilts from the Haliwa-Saponi Indian Community and Sculptures by Victoria Salas Hunter

April 8, 2011

This came in after our deadline, but we are trying to encourage those folks presenting exhibits East of I-95 in NC to join Carolina Arts – so we’re presenting this here. It’s the best we can do at this point. I’m sorry we have no images of the quilts.

Here it is:

NC Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount, NC, Features Quilts from the Haliwa-Saponi Indian Community and Sculptures by Victoria Salas Hunter

NC Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount, NC, is presenting the exhibit, Quilting: A Community History: Quilters from the Haliwa-Saponi Indian Community of Hollister, NC, on view in the Four Sisters Gallery through Apr. 30, 2011. A display of terracotta sculptures by Victoria Salas Hunter will also be on view in the gallery lobby through May 9, 2011. An opening reception will be held on Apr. 8, from 5-8pm.


Work by Victoria Salas Hunter

With the support of a grant from the NC Arts Council for Folklife Preservation, curator Karen Lynch Harley has assembled an exhibit and interviewed the eighteen quilters included in the exhibition. The purpose of this project is to search out, identify, interview, photograph, videotape, record, document, and exhibit the Quilters of the Haliwa-Saponi Indian Community. These interviews will identify the history and stories of the quilters in the Community. Quilting is becoming a lost cultural art form and this project is meant to revitalize the art of quilting and expose its rich history as told by the quilters themselves. Most of these quilters work in a huge variety of contemporary and traditional designs and their art reveals the improvisational creativity and workmanship within this old tradition.

The eighteen exhibitors are Mesheila Lynch, Nannie Lynch, Delois Lynch, Almorris Lynch, Yvonne Locklear, Doris Richardson, Martha Evans, Connie Hedgepeth, Charlotte Richardson, Alverta Richardson, Donald Mills, Carolyn Lynch, Bernadette Lee, Dorothy Lewis, Victoria Lynch, Karen Lynch Harley, Laura Richardson, and Barbara Brayboy.

The funding for this project came from a Grant Award from the NC Arts Council for Folklife Preservation which is a division of the NC Dept. of Cultural Resources, the state agency with the mission to enrich lives and communities and the vision to harness the state’s cultural resources to build North Carolina’s social, cultural and economic future.

Quilting: A Community History: Quilters from the Haliwa-Saponi Indian Community of Hollister, NC, will next travel to the Guilford Native-American Art Gallery in Greensboro, NC, and be on view from June 3 through Aug. 31, 2011.

Victoria Salas Hunter’s statues have a feminine presence that simultaneously expresses both a knowing power and vulnerability. Her standing figures have statuesque dignity that the artist achieves with proportion and gesture. Respecting her material, she leaves the terra cotta in its natural color and explores its surface texture, so the viewer can appreciate the artist’s physical contact with the clay and her creative touch. In a meaningful and metaphorical way she says her statues and busts are like pottery: “As shards of clay possess a story and are part of a vessel, each piece is precious and has great significance. It is those same shards each of us posses that make us unique individuals…whether painfully sharp or soothingly smooth, making us unique vessels.”
