Women's Collective — stories of passionate pursuit

Sep 06, 2017

Rockland — The Midcoast Women's Collective, with Rockland Public Library, presents a panel of three women telling of the risks, timing, pitfalls and successes they’ve encountered in pursuing their passions. This event will be held Thursday, Sept. 14, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the library, 80 Union St. The program is free.

The storytellers include Carrie Brezzo, Dozier Bell and Emma Theobalds. Libby Shrum is the panel moderator.

Since 2008, Brezzo has been designing and constructing small batches of women's clothing under the label CarrieSewFancy. A graduate of Maine College of Art, Brezzo specializes in slow fashion, using local models and photographic talent to feature her graceful and wearable handmade pieces.

Bell's drawings and paintings are a visual autobiography that joins the memory and experiences of a multi-generational Maine family with her own philosophical and historical concerns.

Theobalds, a musician and actress, played the Narrator in the Watts Hall Community Players’ June production of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat." She recently added her vocal talents to Rockport-based band Miners Creek.

Schrum is a furniture designer and woodworker whose work can be seen in galleries and homes across the United States, including the Farnsworth Art Museum. Her work has been featured in the New York Times and her writing published in Fine Woodworking Magazine. Recently, she was featured in Maine Women Magazine and Take Magazine, a magazine telling stories of people in New England "making culture happen.”
