The Visual Arts Center of Richmond’s contemporary quilts exhibition, “The Embedded Message: Quilting in Contemporary Art,” was featured in a Dec. 12 Style Weekly article written by Amanda Dalla Villa Adams.

“Good political art is tricky. Pitfalls include being too didactic or becoming a brash one-liner that confronts people with a singular statement. The best political art is perceptive in a subtle way that draws visitors into the work. With “The Embedded Message,” a multilayered textile held together by thread becomes a wonderful metaphor for thinking through meaningful conversations in the face of the complicated issues facing Americans today.”
