Biographical/Historical Note: Flora Rosefsky is an Atlanta-area artist who specializes in mixed-media collages, community quilts, and other paper and fabric based media. She received her B.S. in Education from Syracuse University (1962) and further studied printmaking, drawing, and painting from Binghamton University and Syracuse University. Rosefsky works out of her studio in Decatur, Georgia and teaches art workshops to both children and adults. Her art is included in many prominent collections in Georgia, New York, and Ohio.

Scope and Content: The Flora Rosefsky papers collection consists of documents, drawings, collages, and textile samples. This collection would be beneficial to researchers studying the textile arts, especially quilt and embroidery design. The artist’s working files for community quilts provide further information about the administration of commissioned works as well as the organization of community projects. Rosefsky collaborated with other quilters and members of the Atlanta-area Jewish community to produce quilts for local organizations. Two of the quilts covered in this collection are housed at the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum: Handkerchiefs for a Jewish Wedding quilt and the Yom Ha’Atzmaut quilt.
