to Fernwood in concert on Sunday, Aug. 9 at 4 p.m. Miller will be performing outdoors on The Green. Admission is free.
Also on Sunday, a new gallery exhibit of photography and quilts by Jim and Bev Munson opens.

Jim is an avid nature photographer drawn to large-scale scenery and animals of all sizes. He is particularly interested in photographing birds in flight and enjoys the completely manual processes and active thinking that are required for large format photography. Quilting has been an energizing force in Bev’s life as it provides endless opportunities for learning and creativity. She is a founding member of Kalamazoo’s Log Cabin Quilters and has four quilts featured in books.

Two other quilts were shown at the International Quilt Festival and one at the American Quilt Museum’s annual competition. Bev’s quilts feature hand and machine sewing, piecing, and appliqué. Her favorite aspect of quilting is the process of choosing color and fabric.
