House of Art will unveil the fine art limited edition portfolio and quilt story book entitled ?For Crying Out Loud? by Master Quilt Artist Phyllis Stephens. The creation of the portfolio stemmed from an article printed in an Essence Magazine, June 2006 article entitled ?The Stolen Girls? by Donna Owens. The article reported on the brutal and horrific treatment of 33 girls wrongfully arrested and imprisoned in an abandoned Civil War stockade. The ?For Crying Out Loud? Portfolio will be previewed March 27, 2010 from 6:00pm ? 10:00pm during a special meet-the-artist reception to be held at The House of Art Gallery, located at 373 Lewis Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.
