CENTERED AROUND CULTURE: QUILTS BY CELY PEDESCLEAUX


About

West Baton Rouge Museum through May 30, 2021. Cely Pedescleaux is a self-taught textile artist and quilter born in the 7th Ward of New Orleans. She grew up surrounded by seamstresses who meticulously crafted hand-worked lace, crocheting, beading, and tatting into decorative pieces of art on fabric. Cely expanded her love for quilting through fashion when she created outfits for Worn Again (2009, 2010) a New Orleans fashion show where the organizers provided old clothing to local artists who brought new life to recycled garments. westbatonrougemuseum.org
