Kathryn M. McMahon, a trained visual artist, has such a strong urge to make art that even in the midst of a human disaster she made art. Kathryn and her husband John Marks, a humanitarian worker, lived in a refugee camp in southern Somalia in 1983. “Africa – Where We and the Arts Began” is the title of Kathryn’s book. The book showcases her art, research and personal memoirs.
Kathryn and John will bring some of Kathryn’s artwork to share. They renovated the former convent building across from St. Felix School and you can see Kathryn’s sculptures in the garden. Registration is required, call 651-565-3927 to sign up.
