Fighting Poverty with Traditional Crafts in Bosnia

Beginning with the post-war situation in Bosnia, Powers will describe three Bosnian women’s groups and how these groups are using traditional crafts to create new products and to earn money. A major focus will be on “Sarajevo Phoenix,” a group of fourteen women whose embroidered and crocheted products are marketed on ETSY and in south-central Pennsylvania at bazaars and arts councils. The lecture will take place in conjunction with Power’s photography exhibit, “The Balkan Backstory”, in CALC’s upper gallery.

LECTURE
Featuring Art Enthusiasts:
Daniel Mack, Mona Steele & Deb Fulham-Winston & Bob Winston
The Gallery Collective

For one night only, four local art enthusiasts will showcase and discuss one amazing piece of artwork from their personal collections and will provide insight into their philosophy of collecting art. The lecture was inspired by the legendary art collectors, Herb and Dorothy Vogel, a postal worker and a librarian who built a world class art collection on humble salaries. The Vogels proclaimed “You don’t have to be a Rockefeller to collect art!” The lecture will take place in CALC’s upper gallery.
