Explore The Whole Drum Will Sound: Women in Southern Abstraction with exhibiting artist, Shawne Major, and create your own abstract composition. Equally conversant in the main traditions of assemblage art since early modernism and the folk art traditions of the American South, Major’s work is an artist’s haul of sewn disparate materials pulled into self-revelatory patterns. Made from products of disposable production – buttons, electrical wiring, wood, plastic toys, fabric and the like – Major creates a remix tableaux with a three-dimensional materiality.
