Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Maggy Rozycki Hiltner. Her most recent exhibition, What Lies Beneath, features large scale quilted fabric pieces made from found embroidery. The body of work uses skeletons, devils and other characters to question social norms about gender, class and death. In our interview, we talk about her interest in found embroidery, how she develops a character within the narrative of an exhibition and how her family history with religion and the occult has affected her aesthetic.

This episode of the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast is sponsored by To Contain and To Serve. This multimedia exhibition features the work of ceramic artist Forrest Middelton and Calligrapher Arash Shirinbab. The two award-winning artists have been collaborating for the past 2 years to explore the interplay of hospitality, morality and justice in contemporary cultural landscapes. The resulting series of calligraphy-inscribed ceramics draw from varied aesthetic influences including the Persian ‘Nishapur’ tradition and the writings of Syrian refugees on Twitter. The exhibition is held at the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California, in Oakland and runs from October 28 to November 24. For more information please visit www.containandserve.com.
