Exhibition / January 15, 2021 – April 28, 2021 The Kelly is excited to announce an exhibition called Home and Hearth. This idea has been a personal dream of mine for several years. Many people use their creative talents to make the lives of their family better by creating beautiful items for their homes and family members. Many do this with no praise or accolades. They do it for the love of creating and giving to others. They are the unsung heroes to their families. This exhibit will showcase hand-made items for the home and family.

A) Quilts—lap, twin, double or queen bed size

D) Knitted items—blankets, items of clothing, heirloom items, etc.
E) Crochet items – blankets, items of clothing, heirloom items, etc.
