I attended the closing for the exhibit of "Legacies of the Feminine" at the PSA Art Gallery last night during the Bisbee Art Walk and Pirates of the Wasteland. Another attention grabber were quilt art squares displayed by multi-faceted artist Alex Wiest. What resonates with me most in her philosophy is how she believes in creating art that is touchable. What keeps your eyes from wandering elsewhere for a while are her choices of fabrics, colors, and patterns. Her unique feminist accentuations, such as printed vintage portraits of women from passed era. The individual components meld into the whole, and the collaboration is quite bewitching.
