Portfolio 2020: the Best of 2019 is the current FRCQ annual online juried members’ exhibit. The juror for Portfolio 2020 was Patty Kennedy-Zafred. Patty has been telling stories through the medium of textiles and art quilts for nearly thirty years, creating thought provoking narratives using fabric, dyes, silkscreens, and ink to develop a visual dialogue with the viewer. The interpretation of each piece is conceived through the lens of individual experiences, memories, or perspectives. Her quilts marry a lifelong fascination with photography, history, and stitch, often reflecting faces of pride and dignity, sometimes under challenging circumstances.
Kennedy-Zafred’s work has been exhibited in major national and international exhibitions, including Fiberart International, CraftForms, Art of the State Pennsylvania, Quilt National, Visions, Artist as Quiltmaker, Fantastic Fibers, Quilts=Art=Quilts, Fiber Options, New Legacies, SAQA Global Exhibitions, National Fiber Directions, and numerous invitational exhibitions and print publications. Her work has won top awards at both American Quilt Society competitions and International Quilt Festival, including the prestigious Masters Award. Her work has traveled across the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, China, and Australia, and is part of the permanent collections of the State Museum of Pennsylvania, Harrisburg, PA, The Textile Museum, Washington, DC, San Jose Museum of Textiles, CA, and Senator John Heinz History Center, Pittsburgh, PA, as well as private collections. She was recently honored as a Master Visual Artist as part of the Preserving the Legacy Project in Pittsburgh.
