This is sooooo exciting! Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi has been awarded a USA Artists Fellowship. Carolyn Mazloomi is one of 60 artists so honored. Visit her website HERE.
Carolyn has been a mentor and friend for many, many years. It is so exciting to see her receive such a prestigious award as a recognition of all the very hard work and sacrifice she has made on behalf of so many African American textile artists and the quilt world at large.
Carolyn isn’t the only textile artist or quilter in the esteemed group of 2021 Awardees. See the full list here.
