Quilts are often passed down from one generation to the next. Handmade pieces represent a person’s past and connect family members through the stories they tell. Sedrick Huckaby’s exhibition When Old People Talk to Young People represents this idea. Using quilts in his art, Huckaby creates works to symbolize faith, family, love and heritage and to represent a better understanding between people of all ages. Huckaby is known for his previous works titled “Big Momma’s House.” His exhibition is on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday though Saturday through December 3 at Valley House Gallery and Sculpture Garden, 6616 Spring Valley Road. For more information, call 972-239-244 or visit valleyhouse.com.
Mondays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Nov. 25. Continues through Dec. 3, 2011
