News from Campbellsville University's Pence Chowning Art Gallery
CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Katie Mynette Speer will exhibit her quilts in the Campbellsville University’s Pence-Chowning Art Gallery on campus located at 205 University Drive, Campbellsville, KY 42718. The exhibit is open to the public from 8:30amCT/9:30amET-2:30pmCT/3:30pmET, February 20, 2015. There will also be a reception on Thursday, February 12, 2015, from 3:30-5pmET, at the gallery.
The artist was born and raised in Campbellsville, KY. "These quilts are comforting to lie under, or when you are not using it, you can put it across the back of the chair and enjoy the beauty of it," Speer said.
One of Speer’s quilts was the first quilt ever accepted by the Coca-Cola Art Show in Elizabethtown, KY.
Speer's grandmother, Nellie Campbell, was an expert seamstress and Speer’s father, the late Billy Logan Speer, designed machinery for the textile industry.
Speer grew up around fabric but does not consider herself to be a seamstress. Each of her masterpieces takes years of work to be complete.
Speer will not be selling any of her heirlooms at this art show, but she will have smaller pieces that are for sale.
Speer is not only a quilter, but she is also a singer, musician, composer and author. Her first book "Poetry, Prayers and Pondering" will be on sale at the art show. Her CD of original piano music will also be available.
