When crafting a story, the primary rule a writer must remember is “show, don’t tell.” This is true in other art forms, too. As an example, I offer “Seamless: Craft-Based Objects and Performance Practices,” the exhibition on view at Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts’ Stedman Gallery through April 16.

While it may be surprising to learn that people serving life sentences are quilters, it’s a wonderful way for them to express their humanity.
