About

Ringgold is best known for her story quilts, which draw on the African American storytelling tradition. The titular “tar beach” refers to the rooftop garden of this family’s Harlem apartment, which provided them and other city dwellers with an oasis from the bustle of the New York streets below. In this oasis, a young girl named Cassie Louise Lightfoot lies on a mattress with her younger brother as the adults play cards at the table and the laundry hangs out to dry. With her story quilts, Ringgold challenges gender and racial stereotypes through textile arts which have often been dismissed by Western tradition as a domestic craft.

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
