Lafayette, Louisiana - Inspired by both graphic design and vintage quilts, Megan Barra’s ‘Silk Compositions’ will be on view at Cité des Arts beginning February 8. Guitars, horns, accordions, and fiddles along with crabs, snakes and coffee cups are fashioned into silk patchworks of Louisiana culture. Music and the men and women who play it, along with the Louisiana landscape, provide rich material to draw from. These works are hand-sewn, sometimes imprinted with original text and images, and finished on a 1901 treadle sewing machine. Barra’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in South Louisiana, Quebec, and France.
