Dare to Dance: An Artist’s Interpretation of Joy with Mary Kerr
Thursday at 4:00
Mary Kerr is proud to present a collection of 32 art quilts that reflect individual expressions of dance and joy. Artists were challenged to create an 18” x 30” inch quilt that reflected the theme, “Dare to Dance: An Artist’s Interpretation of Joy.” Each created their own personal version that told their own unique story. Some quilters found joy in those happy memories with family. Some expressed their joy in overcoming steep obstacles. Others created a quilt to express support for social causes. Still others simply wanted to share the joy they feel when dancing. Each has a story to tell. The quilts in this exhibit, plus more, are included in Mary’s book, Dare to Dance Art Quilts (Schiffer 2014). marywkerr.com
