EPU III: let the healing begin

E Pluribus Unum III:  let the healing begin    epu iii

E Pluribus UnumOut of Many, One.  This is the motto of America.

Yet, racism is experiencing a resurgence.  An inability to accept a variety of lifestyles is now the national conversation. People with disabilities continue to be excluded. A country created of cultures from around the globe, we now expect our leaders to provide political discourse over immigration.

We are a country built on the respect of one another’s views, whether we agree or not.  Race, Creed, Gender, Sexual Orientation and Disability are of no matter to E Pluribus Unum.

We are the Many…We are the One.

Please consider participating in E Pluribus Unum III:  let the healing begin quilt art exhibit.  Join me in expressing to the world, and with the world, how Humane we can be to one another, how Love can heal our tears, how Art can repair the tears in our national fabric.

  1. I look forward to being part of EPU111 because of its importance on so many levels. As a participant of E Pluribus Unum, the meaning of our country’s motto was enriched because of the mental, emotional and spiritual energy it took creating “From the Stars”. I expect that same kind of experience as I dig deep making this new quilt. Ann Flaherty’s vision and attention to details in her projects ensures these expressions of healing in cloth will find respect and meaningful exposure. Happy to be here!

  2. Thank you Sherry…I’m so happy you are participating in EPU III, as well and look forward to seeing your artistic input to this very important exhibit.

  3. Oh Ann, I have such wonderful memories of your past challenge (the one I ended up not having confidence to turn back in). I always wanted to enter another one, so I am going to try hard to get one finished. Hugs and Happy Thanks Giving! Anne Copeland

    • Hello Annie,
      I’m so happy you will be participating in EPU III! And, please do not worry about individual capabilities. All pieces are welcome and will be included in this online exhibit. This is an exhibit about positive spirit. Looking forward to your entry.
      Ann F.
