Pauline Parker’s fabric works, with their collage-like appliqué, explore a range of subjects, including the artist’s childhood memories, her travels, and historical events. This exhibition brings together more than thirty-five of her “fabric collages,” as she called them, which she made using techniques she learned from her mother and aunts. Originally from Chicago, Parker (1915–2013) studied painting at the School of the Art Institute and began creating with fabric only after retiring in Wisconsin.
