This is the first program in the “Meet the Collectors” series. Four collectors who lent objects to the Sheldon’s exhibit Addison County Collects will talk about their collection. Bruce Burgess will discuss his extensive collection of 450 pieces of vintage Fiesta Tableware with particular focus on the original six colors made: red, yellow, cobalt blue, green, ivory, and turquoise (a selection is pictured above). Ann LaFiandra, who has a collection of over 25 pieces of German carved wooden folk art, will show several of her Nutcrackers. Nola Kevra will tell the story of her 1944 “Quilt of Hope,” made by her grandmother for her father while he served in the Pacific in WWII. Mary Manley will relate her experience getting to know Alabama folk artist Mose Tolliver and show works from her collection.
