Join us on Thursday, July 11, 5-8pm during Amherst Arts Night Plus, for a new art exhibit opening at Amherst Town Hall. Local artist Dawn Allen presents "Great American Road Trip" which features fiber art quilts colorfully depicting vintage cars and trucks “traveling” all over the United States. The inspiration behind the show is Dawn's experience as a mother of young children, feeling trapped at times, lacking the freedom to go where-ever, when-ever! As Dawn tells us, "I chose to feature vehicles because the car is a symbol of total freedom. You can jump in and go anywhere at a moment’s notice. The nostalgia of the antique vehicles from 1940-1970 is an important aspect of my work. The intention is to evoke a sense of “the good old days”. Conveying the idea of being young and free and perhaps of “simpler” times. “Great American Road Trip” series is uplifting with brightly colored pieces, cheerful images of places we can all relate to, or places we would love to go."
