Rebecca Sherman KIPS BAY KIPS BAY DECORATOR DECORATOR SHOW HOUSE DALLAS OPENS WITH TWO PREVIEW NIGHTS. I n Sister Rebecca, a nun is seated in profi le, light illuminating her dark features and eyeglasses, tight silver curls escaping from under her veil. She's dignifi ed against the straight back of the chair, hands clasped in her lap. On closer inspection, we see that her portrait has been printed on cloth segments and stitched together — a patchwork quilt of a life dedicated to helping the poor. Fort Worth artist Letitia Huckaby photographed the real Sister Rebecca, along with SISTER, SISTER six other elderly nuns, at Sisters of the Holy Family Motherhouse in New Orleans. The African-American religious congregation was founded there in 1842 by Henriette Delille, a descendant of a slave from West Africa. Huckaby created the documentary portrait project "Bayou Baroque" as a way to honor the women's courage and sacrifi ce; it took the artist more than two years to hand-quilt each image. Sister Rebecca will be on view at Kips Bay Decorator Show House Dallas September 23 through October 25. See more of Huckaby's work at Liliana Bloch Gallery.
