'Hope for Our World' - textile art exhibit at Duke Chapel
Mar '08
Duke Chapel will host a textile art exhibit entitled "Hope for Our World" by local artist Hollis Chatelain. To celebrate the exhibit and raise awareness, on Saturday, April 5, 2008, Duke Chapel will hold Arts in Activism Day.

The program will begin with a conversation between Duke Chapel Dean Sam Wells and artist Hollis Chatelain at 1:00 pm, followed by a guided tour of the exhibit led by the artist at 2:00 pm, and a chance to visit information tables from local advocacy groups.

The exhibit features ten large, colorful and intricately detailed quilts "flying" from the triforium. Each piece examines a theme of social justice, such as water scarcity, genocide, and environmental issues.

“Since 2000, much of my work has reflected my feelings upon worldwide issues. Whether these concerns are social or environmental, they have overwhelmed my dreams and manifested themselves in my art,” said Chatelain.

Hollis Chatelain is a local artist working from a studio and home in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Chatelain's educational background is in design and photography, and began her career as a textile artist in Africa. Her distinctive use of colors and imagery, as well as her dye-painted scenes of multicultural life, has brought her international recognition.

The exhibit will be viewable until April 14, and admission to the exhibit and Arts in Activism Day is free.
