Arts in Context

A Light in the Dark

Season 6 Episode 1 | 26m 47s

Produced locally and created by hand, Gail Chovan’s rich, textural clothing challenges notions of traditional beauty. Through personal and family health struggles, she realized what made her happy: going back to her roots, “to create, to sew on a small, still independent scale.” Life as her muse, she knows there is a light at the end of a dark tunnel.
