WAAC Member & Artist Janet F. Potter and Deniz Seker participate in Redwork: The Emperor of Atlantis a collaborative exhibit by Catherine Heard


“It has embroideries of war, injustice, and resistance in a patchwork of antique redwork embroideries. Patriotic imagery, homey domestic scenes and fairy tale characters are juxtaposed with embroideries of traumatic events. Making this piece,  the artist have been thinking about how history is recorded in the domestic sphere; about patriotism; about the stories we tell ourselves as we try to make sense of the world in which we live.”
