I go to conduct an interview with fiber artist Maria-Theresa Fernandes about her exhibit that was recently on display at the Morgan State University’s James E. Lewis Museum of Art. The exhibit was called Locations, Dislocations, Relocations: Embroidering Art, Poetry and History. Fernandes, who was born in Kenya and studied in England, has participated in over 25 solo exhibitions and several international exhibitions. She is the recipient of prestigious international grants and awards such as the Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant, the Ruth Cheven Foundation award, and the UNESCO Arts International award.
History and poetry are brilliantly woven into the fabric of Fernandes’s works, which translate her physical and emotional attachment to the lands she visited.
