Tune in this Saturday, April 20th @ 11AM for an interview with Tanya Augsburg,, the lead curator of the F213 exhibit in San Francisco, and Patricia Montgomery, a fabric artist whose work is featured in the exhibit.
Tanya Augsburg is the lead curator of the F213 exhibit, presented by the Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art. She is an interdisciplinary feminist performance scholar, critic, educator, and curator who can be occasionally persuaded to perform. She is also the curator of Thirty Books: The F213 Protest Literature Library that is part of F213. She teaches at San Francisco State University, where she is currently Professor of Humanities and Liberal Studies.
Patricia Montgomery is a fabric and installations artist who lives in Oakland. Her work in the F213 exhibit is called Wedding Coat: The Story About Domestic Violence. For this coat, in 2018, she was awarded Best of Show in the Wearable Art Competition at the Pacific International Quilt Festival. Previously, Patricia Montgomery created flat story quilts and transformed them into swing coats. These swing coats tell the stories of unknown heroines from the Civil Rights Movement. So, she has become known as the “Coat Lady.”
