Carolyn Harper
Seeking Freedom: Portraits of Mass Incarceration,
April 24 to May 27, 2023

Carolyn Harper (Narberth, PA) is a textile artist exploring portraiture through traditional craft medium. Her subjects often depict individuals who have been “marginalized, discriminated against, or abused,” with the aspiration to provide “faces to those who are faceless, nameless and powerless, and bear witness to those who are suffering.” Using techniques such as quilting, batik, hand dying, embroidery, and more, each portrait offers a compelling testament to a lived experience, stitched in time.
