Folkart has long focused on the quiet and seemingly ordinary aspects of everyday life.
Folk paintings and grave documentation go hand-in-hand with storytelling.
Using an environment common to, but often overlooked by the community as a place of art,
FOLKART & WORDS in the CEMETERY
is a workshop with a focus on creating a work of art incorporating these
diverse, yet interconnected elements.
Just though I'd share our most wondrous cemetery program at Morgan last month.
I do so love my cemetery adventures.
It was so lovely to see everyone create in this serene spot.
Our folk musicians from HOMESLICE, Dan Cleveland & Ron VanNostrand
always bring joy and a touch of the old ways to our events.
I love Morgan Cemetery.
On the pale hills
Moon is counting sheep
says the little wind in the curtain.
A violet by a mossy stone
half hidden from the eye.
~William Wordsworth 1770-1850
