UMass Art Professor Jeanette Cole presents work that represents desire and hope for a place called “home.”  Based on imagery from a robe made in West Africa, given to her father by his co-workers after 15 years of missionary and literacy work, and inherited by Cole on his passing, she traced the seams holding the fabric strips together and used that to form the structure of these paintings.
