Collection: Mary Edna Fraser

FLIGHT by Mary Edna Fraser at the Aiken-Rhett House Museum

September 29 - November 27

Opening September 29 at the preserved-as-found Aiken-Rhett House Museum, master dyer and environmental artist, Mary Edna Fraser, will present a visual arts exhibit, FLIGHT. The exhibit, on display September 29 through November 27, is comprised of nine groupings of oil paintings to tell stories of the FLIGHT of enslaved men and women and to honor their stories. Poems by Marjory Wentworth, former Poet Laureate of SC, and J. Drew Lanham will be on display in the historic house’s most poignant and powerful spaces. Silks drape through rooms suggesting the spirits of the lost and finally, batiks on silk and oils will add a visual narrative to the poetry.

Half of all profit from art sales will go to the 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.
