      Lisa Siders Kenney Quilt Show

      Lisa Siders Kenney Quilt Show - Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island - Sun Jan 5 at 11:30AM UU Art Gallery Show The current Unitarian Universalist Art Gallery features A Tribute to Esme, a Journey of Grief and Healing , by Lisa Siders-Kenney. Lisa is a well-known Cincinnati artist and quilt maker, now living in Greenbank. The quilt exhibit sprang from a deep well of grief as she returned to her artistic work in the wake of the murder of her beloved daughter, Esme. On March 7, 2009, just weeks after her 13th birthday, Esme Louise Kenney was abducted and killed while jogging near her home by a known murderer and sex offender. Shortly after Esme s murder, a call went out to Lisa s friends for entries for The Esme Kenney Memorial Quilt. Outraged by this crime against a vibrant young woman, friends, family and community resoundingly responded with over one hundred participants submitting squares depicting memories of Esme or paying tribute to her joyful spirit. The resulting 20 x 7 quilt is the focus for this exhibit. The textile work explores themes of loss, grief, healing, the need to protect our children, as well as reactions to violence against girls and women. Other works in the show include Creation Dream and She who raised me, may she be strong whatever comes. For she who raised me should be strong. There will be a reception for the artist Sunday, January 5 from 11:30 to 12:30.The commemorative quilt will be displayed at this time. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Whidbey Island is located at 20103 State Route 525, one mile north of Freeland.
