Arts Festival 2016

We make room in our house for beauty, may we appreciate the care and graciousness of God the artist, who takes us beyond the pragmatic and the restrained and leads us into realms of extravagance and boldness, recognizing the power of color and form to open our eyes to new possibilities.

Special thanks to Diane Kunze who judged our art show this year. Diane earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art. She was a crafts major and studied fibers and metal. Diane worked as a professional weaver for twenty five years and participated in the high end craft circuit. She currently teaches at The Philadelphia School where she runs the afterschool art program for middle school. Diane lives in Philadelphia with her husband who is a potter. She is an award winning gardener and community leader in her neighborhood.

Diane enjoyed visiting Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School and was impressed with the quality of our art facilities and program. Diane was particularly impressed with the talent of our students and the experience of our Mercy girls being happy, friendly, and so quiet in the hallways!
