Mary Walmsley

Sower of the Word

 

When you win a victory against all odds, how do you celebrate?  How can one portray the role God plays in each facet of such a triumph? Mary Walmsley has managed to do just that with humor and grace. All that and more is in this program.

 

As the artist gives a guided tour of this prize-winning masterpiece, the audience will be delighted with the scope of her imagination and talent. Beginning with the map in the center and working her way outward, Walmsley recounts the biblical lessons, divine dealings, and events that caused this work to evolve as it did. In addition to what you see, stories and symbols hidden in the quilting are revealed in every section. The program culminates with a delightful account of the quilting bee she had that initiated the final work on this piece.
