FLIGHT at Aiken-Rhett House MuseumAugust 28th, 2022

Mary Edna teams with poets Marjory Wentworth and J Drew Lanham to create an installation of oils, silks and words honoring the enslaved people who lived and worked in the Aiken-Rhett House. Half of all proceeds from art sales will go to Charleston based Center for Heirs Property - Preserving Family Land. Their legal and forestry work has started an economic and land conservation movement that creates intergenerational wealth among historically underserved landowners. Wentworth and Lanham share poems in the Servants Quarters and Laundry. Oils in black frames are placed to tell a visual story of swamps, rivers and landscapes folks traversed seeking freedom. Silks drape through rooms suggesting the spirits of those who were lost and voiceless. Batiks on silk and oils add a visual narrative to the poetry.
