Terrie Hancock Mangat is a textile artist known for her colorfully embellished art quilts. The Curator's Wall features the stunning large scale Medicine Bough Mountain Retreat, 2015. This colorful 27-foot 3-part quilt shows Mangat's unique compositional technique where she uses color, texture and pattern designing a dance between abstract and representational forms. In Medicine Bough Mountain Retreat, Mangat evokes layers of symbolism by presenting representations of the body, embedding scraps and zippers from her son's backpacks and tethering cams and carabiners used for mountain climbing.
