Beatrice Brown

As you know, the Arts Center is closed until further notice. However, we have an incredible Juried Show to share. We are moving the 45th show online. Each day in the morning hours we will post a new work on display at the Arts Center with a short story. Here we go!

Hi! I’m Beatrice Brown @butterscotch_designs a Washington, D.C transplant to Athens after retiring from 35 years of medical research and development. My favorite thing about Athens, The People! Athens provides me space and time to explore my art as I appreciate the many diverse artists around me. As I read, with intense interest, the New York Times Magazine unfolding story of America’s real birthday--August 1619 at the arrival of its first African slaves, I felt inspired to add my voice through the medium of fabric and quilting, creating this piece, "400 Years in America".
