OUR HISTORY, OUR VOICES PROJECT

The Liberty Collins Exhibit

About Her Exhibit…

I’m an East TN native who grew up playing outside crushing poke berries, painting on tin with rocks, and digging in the red clay of my backyard.

Now I’m a potter!

I started my body vessel project in September of 2020 after a diagnosis of a chronic illness.

Since then, it’s blossomed into a wonderful exploration of loving my body, its limits, and overcoming shame around my illness and imperfections.

It’s also been hugely influential in beginning more conversations with women around me as they find their own struggles represented and the strength to discuss them.

I am humbled by the journey of these body vessels and the connections I’ve made by sharing them.

The Meg Nocero Exhibit

When in April of 2011 I lost my mother to breast cancer, I also lost my way. Perseverance and a never give up attitude is certainly something I learned from my Italian American upbringing as well as a love of writing, reading books and the arts. Navigating the grieving process, I turned to writing as a healing tool. I started simply. I would wake in the morning and read from a book that resonated with me.
