Oil Stains Series Gallery Talk by Eleanor McCain


Oil Stains Series Gallery Talk by Eleanor McCain
Saturday, July 26, 2014
1:30 p.m.
Ruth Funk Center Galleries
Free Admission

Oil Stains features fourteen quilts representing the artist’s reaction to the 2010 BP oil spill and its effect on Florida’s Gulf Coast. McCain states, “To term it simply a ‘spill’ is to imagine that it can be wiped clean, that all our sea creatures, estuaries and the Gulf itself, have recovered or can recover. This is not so. It is a stain, indelible, unnatural, permanent.”

Eleanor McCain is a practicing Internal Medicine Physician in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. She has been an exhibitor in Quilt National five times. Her works can be seen in numerous public and private collections including the Mint Museum in Charlotte, NC. She lectures frequently on the art quilt, and has been featured in numerous publications.
