Stitches and stanzas are on the minds of quilters and poets collaborating in the Poetry in Free Motion project, which highlights the works of 11 quilters and 11 poets from central Indiana.
The quilts and poems will be displayed from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, Jan. 3-30, at the Southside Art League, 299 E. Broadway St., Greenwood. A reception will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9. Info: 938-7026.
Each poet was assigned to write about one of the quilts. The finished quilts and their accompanying poems have been displayed at various venues.
The quilters are Martha Allan, Jeanette Bagley, Diane Billiard, Tina Brauer, Phyllis Fee, Cynthia Holman, Mary Kenworthy, Suzanne Miller, Linda Osman, Linda Rowda and Mary Beth Wren.
The poets are Joyce Brinkman, Barry Harris, Mary Place Godsey, Elizabeth Krajeck, Jennifer Lemming, Jayne Marek, Teresa Middleton, Lylanne Musselman, Mary Sexson, John Sherman and Shari Wagner.
The program was founded by John and Mary Hawn as a way of combining their separate passions. Mr. Hawn is a poet who writes under the name of JL Kato; Mrs. Hawn is a quilter.
