Eliza Silhoutte:

The Pinckney Project: at the Charleston Museum

June 12-june 22, 2015

Madame Magar's Makeshift Studio

A portrait of Eliza Lucas Pinckney who as a young girl brought indigo to this region of South Carolina and made it a cash crop. Since there is no known portrait of Eliza,(it was stolen or lost in a fire),I hand stitched her silhouette with hand dyed indigo dress scrap at the Charleston museum.     

A collaboration exhibit/installation as part of the Pinckney project to raise awareness and money for the restoration of Eliza's dress.

made to order & custom silhouettes available
