April show featuring quilts by “Betty and the Girls”
Three generations of quilters will have their work on display during the month of April at Meadowlark Gallery in Grant.
Betty Frederick, who has called Grant her home for 39 years, learned to quilt at the age of four with her grandmother. She passed the skill on to daughters Rogene Margritz of Kearney and Jacqueline Greene of Imperial. The three of them, as well as granddaughter Kylee Margritz will be featured in April as well as honored at an open house on Sunday, April 6.
One of Betty’s mother’s hand painted quilts will also be among over 30 quilts at the gallery.
Quilts will again headline with a show by Elsie’s Susan Hanson with her Buffalo Quilt Show and “Of Cows and Quilts” the story of Grace McCance Snyder, an American pioneer and accomplished quilter, presented by the Mari Sandoz High Plains Heritage Center at Chadron State College.
Visit Meadowlark Gallery on Friday and Saturday evenings from 6-8 p.m. March-November and check the arts council’s Facebook page for past shows and a current gallery schedule.
The gallery is operated by the Perkins County Area Arts Council, who meets the second Friday of each month, 6 p.m. at the gallery. Next meeting will be Friday, April 11, and is open to the public.
