Artist of the Week: Joan Hershey

Joan Hershey is an artist who has lived in Bloomington for almost 40 years.  She has studied various art media, and for the past twenty years has concentrated on creating with cloth combining traditional with new techniques of quilt making. She began sewing as a child and the quilted construction is a medium that naturally joins visual expression and craft.  She references traditional and folk patterns in quilts and other traditional arts while creating new, personal constructions and compositions.  She exhibits nationally and is an active member of local quilt groups and the national groups Art Quilt Network and Studio Art Quilt Associates.
