Art Lecture at LRMA

February 15 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Dr. Sandra Sider will present “Centennial to Bicentennial: Quilt Making in the United States, 1876-1976.” Dr. Sider, a past president of Studio Art Quilt Associates, recently retired after 10 years as Curator for the Texas Quilt Museum. She edited Art Quilt Quarterly for six years, and has published numerous articles and books on fiber and textile art for more than three decades. A studio quilt artist since the late 1970s, she focuses on photographic processes in her work, embellished with surface design techniques, including hand embroidery. Her art quilts have been acquired by several museums and corporate collections.  She studied photography and printmaking in workshops at the School of Visual Arts (NYC) and Manhattan Graphics Center, and has an MA in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and a PhD in comparative literature from the University of North Carolina.  From 2019 through 2022, she taught the History of Textiles course for the MFA Textiles program at Parsons School of Design.


The program is free an open to the public. The lecture begins at 5:30 p.m. with a reception to follow at 6:30 p.m.

The City of Laurel, established as a lumber town in 1882, is conveniently situated approximately two hours from larger destination cities such as Jackson, Biloxi, New Orleans, and Mobile. In recent years, the city has become a destination all its own thanks, in part, to its starring role in HGTV’s popular “Hometown” series. As Laurel, and interest in it, continues to grow, we are committed to providing the resources necessary to help all of our residents and businesses reach their full potential.
