Joplin, Missouri native Sonié Ruffin is a fabric artist, a textile designer and she also writes stories about the pieces and quilts she makes, some of which have been displayed in museums and galleries across the nation. She’s a visiting curator at the American Jazz Museum, a Charlotte Street Foundation Fellow and as Randy Mason will show you, a lot of fun to talk to. Ruffin will have several pieces featured in a new exhibit called “She-roes” starting at the Leedy Voulkous Gallery on February 3.
