May show features quilts
Creations by local quilter Susan Hanson as well as a photo display provided by the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center of Chadron State College will be featured at Meadowlark Gallery during the month of May.
Hanson’s “Blossoms and Buffalo” collection showcases her unique mosaic style quilts, some of which were newly created for the show.Also on display will be quilted bowls made from clothesline.
Representatives from the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center are pleased to partner with Meadowlark Gallery, one of their outreach partners.
The photograph exhibit features the works of Nebraska rancher and quilter Grace McCance Snyder.
Snyder grew up in Custer County, north of Cozad, Neb. where her family homesteaded in the late 1800s.
As a child, she sewed together small pataches of fabric while tending cows in the fields.
She married a rancher, and passed long hours by creating elaborate quilts. She eventually became internationally recognized for her work, and her life has been depicted in books and plays.
An open house will be held Sunday, May 4, from 1-3 p.m. with refreshments.
Visit Meadowlark Gallery on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-8 p.m. March-November and check the arts council’s Facebook page for past shows and a current gallery schedule.
The gallery is operated by the Perkins County Area Arts Council, who meets the second Friday of each month, 6 p.m. at the gallery. The meetings are open to the public.
