January 6, 2009 Quilting bee

Filed under: General — sharon @ 12:29 pm

We only have one painting on our walls that has anything to do with quilts and quilting – but this one has everything to do with quilting. It’s a tongue-in-cheek look at a quilting bee of African American women, signed Sallielou P Eakins. The image speaks for itself.

This was purchased years ago at our local antique market from the artist herself; or rather himself. At the time he was a young man living in Reading, PA. Sallielou was his alter ego and as far as I know he still paints under that name, having dropped the surname some time ago. Apparently he now lives in Cottonwood, NM. Here’s a gallery of some of his more recent work.

Several times we’ve seen Sallielou’s work turn up in auctions on eBay and in various outsider art and folk art circles.
