This exhibition draws heavily from Huckaby's series "40 Acres... Gumbo Ya Ya," which consists of images taken in rural Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas and framed in vintage embroidery hoops. Also featured are pieces from Huckaby's "Shop Rags" series, and a multi-media quilt titled Mississippi Mud. the exhibition examines the landscape of the rural South, the realities and longings of a neglected culture, and the hopes and dreams passed on to future generations.

Lisa Qualls grew up in Louisiana and has spent much of her adult life travelling across the South, between Texas and Florida, making many stops and meeting many people in-between. She is driven by curiosity and a desire to discover the new while uncovering the old. She is especially interested in identity and culture – these essential human elements that define individuals and develop groups. This exhibit features 22 of Lisa’s exquisite graphite portraits on white clay board recently donated by the artist to the Masur Museum’s permanent collection.
