Heroines of the Civil Rights Movement combines history and textile designs that will honor women whose actions were instrumental in the success of the Civil Rights Movement. Some of the women were well known; others less so, but deserving of greater recognition. This exhibition will feature the absolutely stunning creative "Swing Coat" designs of Ms. Patricia Montgomery, master quilter. Please walk through history as AAMLO's Chief Curator Rick Moss creates an environment that compliments each swing coat and is conducive to placing the actions of these women in the historical context of this great movement.
The exhibition will be open until July 16, 2016. Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, February 13, 2016 from 2pm until 4pm. Please RSVP by calling (510) 637-0200.

"I make art because the process enlivens me, and illustrates my ongoing struggle between perfectionism and the creative impulse. I incorporate humor, satire, and feminism into my art.
To reflect my green perspective, this show is called Elementals. Earth, fire, air, and water are interlaced in eccentric combinations. I invite viewers t reflect on how women's identities are trivialized by objectification, and to envision a different point of view."
