Description

One of Mary Lee Bendolph’s most original creations is a group of quilts that were inspired by a “fine art” intaglio print she herself made during the two weeks she spend with Louisiana Bendolph at Paulson Press in Berkeley, California in the summer of 2005. She made prints based on her quilts, adapting one medium to another, then when she got home, she began to introduce the aesthetic of her prints into the quilts she made.
