Visitor's Center To Gee's Bend

Friday, December 18, 2009

The new visitor's center on the Camden side of the river is open and on our last visit to Gee's Bend, we were able to go inside for a look:

They had pottery, books, paintings, and a quilt on display:

I'm not certain if all, but many of the artists also have their work for sale at Black Belt Treasures in Camden.

The 'centerpiece' of the visitors center was this metal sculpture:

There wasn't a wall label, but I think this was done by (hope I'm spelling this right!) Cathy Laminack.

Oh, and remember the quilt trail in Gee's Bend? I got an email from a very nice lady after posting about it that is working on a book about quilt trails all across the country right now and will soon be published by Ohio University Press. I was thinking there were probably only a handful of quilt trails, but she said that she has already visited 55 of them in research for the book. Wow!
