Chatham Meade, curator and director of the Lucile Parker Gallery, said, "Mrs. Ginn and her work with fiber materials truly enhance the Hattiesburg community as well as the art world of Mississippi. Her work includes both nontraditional art pieces which are her original design as well as more traditional quilt pieces. Her work includes the use of transparencies, metallic threads, and other fiber related materials not traditionally used in fabric pieces. Mrs. Ginn's work celebrates the beauty of Mississippi by creating art from the forms, shapes, patterns and colors of leaves, trees, flowers, land forms, celestial bodies, and other natural objects in a way that is truly unique to her and of her own design and creative innovation."
