Event Description

This exhibition at WheatonArts features paj ntaub artworks and jewelry by Hmong master artist and teacher, Pang Xiong Sirirathasuk Sikoun. Many of Pang Xiong’s paj ntaub works are created as “story cloths,” incorporating symbolic imagery to provide visual narratives on folk tales, Hmong family clans, nature, wars, and painful journeys from farming villages to refugee camps. Open October 4 through December 31, 2019, Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The “Embroidered Stories: Hmong Fiber Arts” exhibit is part of the Down Jersey Folklife Center’s “Near and Far: Arts and Cultures of East Asia” project, presented in partnership with Cumberland County Cultural and Heritage Commission and AtlanticCounty Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs. Major support for this partnership project has been provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. Additional project support provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.
