A KALEIDOSCOPE EVENT –

QUILTING SHOW SET FOR SATURDAY AT SRU’S CARRUTH RIZZA HALL

           SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Thirty-five quilters from Butler, Allegheny and Beaver counties will display quilts from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday [April 16] at Slippery Rock University, an opening-day event for the university’s nine-day Kaleidoscope arts festival.

           The quilters belong to the Tri-County Quilters Guild and will set up at SRU’s Carruth Rizza Hall. Visitors will see bed quilts, lap quilts, tree skirts, table runners and hanging quilts with country and modern designs, says Johnna Ramsden of Tri-County Quilters.

           They will also raffle a full-size quilt through $2 tickets.

        SRU’s College of Humanities, Fine and Performing Arts launched Kaleidoscope four years ago to promote the arts and showcase the talent of students and faculty.  The April 16-24 arts festival offers a “Children’s Day” on Saturday, a free piano concert at 4 p.m. Sunday at Swope Music Hall by Joanne Rogers, wife of the late Fred Rogers of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, and her partner Jeannine Morrison, as well as a movie night, lectures, concerts, plays, dance recitals and an outdoor sculpture exhibit featuring student artwork.
