SEE Art Salon: Fighting Poverty with Traditional Crafts in Bosnia

October 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Janet Powers, Photographer and Retired Gettysburg College Professor presents 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.
