A collection honoring Georgine Clarke

The Friendship Quilt

1941 1941-- 2012

This is the online edition of the The Friendship Quilt created in 1991 to honor Kentuck's founding director, Georgine Clarke, on the 20th anniversary of the Kentuck Arts Festival. It is now on display in the Ellis Teer Gallery of the Georgine Clarke Building located on the campus of the Kentuck Art Center. 1922 5th St. Northport, Alabama. You will find that many of the individual pieces are not identified. Kentuck invites you to contribute information you might have concerning any of the pieces. Our goal is to have a complete and informative guide to the collection and the artists who made it possible. Kentuck would like to thank the Clarke family for donating the quilt to our care. It will always be the center point of our permanent collection. We would also like to thank Sara Johnson who expertly photographed the individual pieces in the collection Please send inf ormation to: anden@kentuck.org


The Commemorative Plaque


The Ellis Teer Gallery Ellis Teer left a magnificent legacy. He was a founder of all that is Kentuck - The Kentuck Festival of the Arts and the downtown Art Center, Gallery and Museum. He was there when the Festival started in downtown Northport, and he helped develop Kentuck Park so that it would become home for an annual art celebration. Ellis was a true pioneer in this park. In what was then a completely untamed field, he searched for level ground that could be mowed for artists’ booths; waged a never-ending war on fire ants, hornets and poison ivy; and found ways to string power cords through the trees. And as Northport Postmaster he calmly engineered purchase of the land which now houses the Art Center activities - a sizeable commitment from a very small community group. He had faith that the lot (dominated mainly by a road from the Post Office and abandoned bathroom fixtures) would one day house artists’ studios and exhibition spaces. He was gentle, wise and remarkable - and he made dreams become reality. Georgine Clarke
