Celebration of the Arts
My church was a lively place this week, with our second Celebration of the Arts. Not to be confused with Mennonite Arts weekend, which is bi-annual on this same February weekend. That will come next year.
We had workshops, dinner, a gallery, a boutique, and a special worship service today. I'm so happy to have landed in a good space here.
I bought the little black and white boutique piece, above, by Janelle White. It is fabric on canvas, and she had a larger and wonderful take-your-breath-away black and white piece in the gallery.
I was looking at the book titles, and right under Janelle's piece is The Tall Woman by Wilma Dykeman. Not a new book, but if you love Appalachian literature, it's a must-read. I think I've read it at least four times.
