October featured artist
On Friday, September 23rd Carroll County Arts will honor our October featured artist, quilter Edna J. Woodward with an Open House/Reception at the Carroll County Arts Center, 204 West Main Street, Carrollton. The reception will be from 6:00 to 8:00 PM and the public is invited. Light refreshments will be served and live music provided by Harpist Barbara Ashbury of Akron. Barbara is a former Carroll County resident.
Edna began quilting in the late 80's and into the 90's but began quilting seriously in the last ten years. "I have lived in Richmond since 1947 and got very involved with quilting groups after I became a widow. It's my sanity", she stated. "I love fabric and enjoy going to the specialty stores in Charm, Berlin, Mt. Hope, Coshocton and picking out the material for my quilts. As a young child in 4-H, girls didn't get involved with animals--they were always involved with sewing." She has also worked at Mario's Restaurant in Weirton for 40 years and still keeps her hand in part-time.
The quilts will be displayed in the first floor gallery as well as the second floor. The Center is handicapped-accessible with an elevator so visitors will be able to see the quilts on the second floor.
The Quilt Show will be on display until October 25th.
Additional parking will be available at the Rosebud parking lot on High Street as parking is limited at the Center. CCA receives special permission to use this parking lot when there is an event such as 4th Friday.
