Kimmel Gallery Exhibit

Apron Exhibit




April 2016

 Apron Collection - Betty Stukenholtz

 Kimmel Gallery

 Morton-James Public Library

The public is invited to view the exhibit during regular library hours through May 6.



The principal use of an apron was to protect ones clothing from daily chores. It was easier to wash aprons than dresses. Over the years women embellished them, making them both practical and beautiful. 

My love for aprons started as a young girl as I always wore an apron while helpingmy mother in the kitchen. There were times when we visited my Grandmother that my mother liked the apron she was wearing so she would lay the apron on a newspaper, trace it off which gave her a pattern to make one later. My collection of aprons consists of Victorian ones, those made from feed sacks, gingham with cross-stitch or chicken scratch, fancy embroidery, etc. Each woman was free to use her own creativity by adding bias tape and rickrack which resulted in some outstanding works of art.” Betty Stukenholtz
