Reception with Artist's Talk: TBD

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.
