Mary Kelly, artist, scholar, and teacher, most recently of Hilton Head SC, has died. See her lovely obituary here.
Mary did a wonderful program for Palmetto Fiber Arts Guild in June of 2014 on the topic she is probably most well known for -- Goddess Cloth. This was her academic area of study and she shared with us her recognition of common goddess design themes (related to feminine power, fertility, and protection) in "folk textiles" from widely dispersed geographic areas, eras of time, and cultural heritages.
