Centered Around Culture: Quilts of Cely Pedescleaux (March - May 2021)
The story quilts of New Orleans artist Cely Pedescleaux was featured at the West Baton Rouge Museum in the spring of 2021. Cely was inspired at an early age by family members who were seamstresses. Her colorful multi-layered quilts reflect various styles of crocheting, beading, and tatting that she learned from these women. Her contemporary quilts have been displayed in France, Italy, and China as well as museums and cultural centers around Louisiana. The exhibit ran from March 6 to May 30.
