May 10-22, 2016 – Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Hayesville, NC (a short drive from Hiawassee and Young Harris, GA) will host the Sacred Threads Art Quilt Traveling Exhibition. Sacred Threads explores themes of spirituality, joy, inspiration, peace/brotherhood, grief and healing. This biennial exhibition, part of a larger exhibition housed in Herndon, Virginia, was established to provide a safe venue for quilters who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey. The artwork touches on both spiritual and personal levels all those who view it. Artists share with others the experiences of quilters whose stories may be a source of healing and strength. The show does not advocate for any particular theology. For more information, contact Jane Oliver or 678-549-3900.
