  • Quilted Photographs: Artist talk with Jessica Smolinski

     

    Date: Thursday November 4th, 2021

    Time: 7:00 pm 

    Location: Zoom

    Registration Recommended

    Email registration@litchfieldhistoricalsociety.org to register

    The Litchfield Historical Society is excited to host a series of lectures to accompany its quilt-themed exhibit, Stitching Stories. Join us for a virtual talk with artist Jessica Smolinski on Thursday, November 4, 2021 at 7:00 on Zoom.  

    Jessica Smolinski is a sculpture-trained photographer whose work merges photography, sculpture, installation and hand crafts. She’s inspired by traditional domestic crafts, specifically quilting, because of the overlap of form and function and of making and caring. As a photographer, Jessica documents serendipitous moments of her day-to-day and family life. She then cuts, recomposes and sews the photos together to form new fragmented relationships which become quilt-like patterns and designs.

    The lecture will be presented over Zoom. Space on zoom is limited and early registration is recommended. To register email registration@litchfieldhistoricalsociety.org
