This exhibition of Lisa Qualls' work is comprised of two portrait groupings and an installation. One portrait grouping is from Qualls’ ongoing “Southern Portrait Project”. Qualls travels across the South from North Carolina to Texas meeting people, photographing them and recording their stories. This exhibition will include a select grouping of portraits executed in graphite on claybord. These are monochromatic, almost photo-realistic drawings, with minimal backgrounds.
The second portrait grouping is suite inspired by quilters and seamstresses from the Quincy area and from Qualls' family. These are colorful and patterned portraits on panels. Family traditions of pattern design, textile making, dyeing and construction are celebrated by these works.
The installation piece is titled "Duty to Memory". It is inspired by a photo album from the late 1940's from a Quincy area family. The installation is about American rural life; a lifestyle that continues through generations surviving hardships, natural disasters, market cycles and continues to flourish and be sustained despite the many obstacles.
