April Art Talk: Sarah Scott

Lauren Rogers Museum of Art will present ArtTalk on Thursday, April 21 at noon in the Museum’s Stairwell Gallery. Gulf Coast quilt artist Sarah Scott will be the featured speaker.

Sarah Scott of Pass Christian, Mississippi, has worked with fiber and fabric since she was three years old when she first crocheted. She made her own prom dresses and eventually wedding gowns for her daughters. In 1999, she retired from her job at the Naval Research Laboratory and took up quilting as an art. She studied with many well-known quilters at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina. Scott says “my art quilts seem to take on lives of their own sometime after fabric selection and before binding.” Scott is a member of Studio Art Quilt Associates.

Art Talk, sponsored by West Quality Food Services, Inc., is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to bring a sack lunch. Desserts and beverages will be provided.
