Individual quiltmakers from The Gee’s Bend Quilters Collective have partnered with Tinwood Ventures to create art prints based on the stunning imagery of Gee’s Bend quilts. The results are beautiful silkscreen prints of several quilts from the Quilts of Gee’s Bend exhibition. The first print, a modified “Housetop” quilt by Mary Lee Bendolph, was introduced at the Milwaukee Art Museum during the opening weekend of the exhibition and promptly sold out in the first few hours. David Gordon, the director of the Milwaukee Art Museum, and his wife, Maggie, made the first purchase.
