TACS presents first lecture in Crafts & Conversation Series: Pick a shape, any shape, what shape are you?

Published 10:00 pm Monday, November 9, 2015

Tryon Arts and Crafts School, 373 Harmon Field Rd., is kicking off a new lunchtime lecture series on Dec. 10, between 12 and 1 p.m. at the school’s annex building. The first speaker will be international artist and author Marilyn Doheny speaking on the thought-provoking topic of shapes and their effect on our lives. Audience members are invited to bring lunch or a snack, and beverages will be provided.

Marilyn will speak on the universal language of shapes. This language identifies 147 diverse shapes – each with its own specific “universal” meaning. The language is found in all civilizations and all cultures and is embedded in our human DNA. When distilled from 147 shapes to five residual “essential” shapes, it becomes manageable, memorable and a useful way to communicate with others and ourselves.

This lecture will be informative and entertaining, and full of audience participation. Marilyn will highlight her talk/presentation with examples of these shapes in jewelry, pottery, clothing, weaving quilts and sculpting. Be enchanted and inspired by Marilyn’s quilting examples and her passion for creative, artistic expression.
