"Letitia Huckaby: LA 19"

The artist searches for her past through scraps of fabric

It's an easy jump from new media artist Letitia Huckaby's physically piecing together bits of fabric for the works in "LA 19 (Daughters of God)" to her symbolic piecing together of bits of her family history. The works, comprised of fabric scraps imprinted with photographs of women in Huckaby's extended family, range from framed images to stand-alone creations. For MaDear, Huckaby quilted over an image of an older woman who is sitting alone in her house. The photo is taken through the window; viewers see the frame and the reflections in the glass as well as what's inside. Something Old, Something New is a dress and jacket created from patched-together circles of antique fabric Huckaby received from female relatives. It's displayed standing upright, as if it's being worn by an invisible woman. 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Through July 4. Galveston Arts Center in Exile 2, 2501 Market Street, Galveston. For information, call 409-763-2403 or visit www.galvestonartscenter.org. Free.
Wednesdays-Sundays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: June 2. Continues through July 4, 2010
