Kathryn Clark - Refugee Stories


August 1 - 31, 2017

Opening reception Friday, August 4th from 6:30-8:00

Workshop with Kathryn Clark: Stitch a Story - Embroider with a Purpose. August 26, 12:00 - 4:00pm

Inspired by the Bayeux Tapestries, Refugee Stories is a series of six embroidery panels that follow the recent journey of the Syrian refugees. The second largest mass migration in history is documented in various points along the refugees’ path. Each point along their journey was affected by geography: by sea or land, pastoral farmland or war town desert. Using news stories, Google Earth, and numerical data from the UN, each panel pieces the journey into one polyphonic map. Net proceeds from sales will be donated to East Bay Sanctuary.
