Richard Terrell is an emeritus professor of fine arts and humanities at Doane College, Crete, Nebraska. He is a painter, author, and theater performer and maintains a studio in the Burkholder Project in Lincoln’s Haymarket district. As previous acting director of Ad Lib, a Colorado-based retreat for the arts, he facilitated group discussions on issues pertaining to arts, faith, and community. He has shown in numerous group and solo juried exhibitions.


Sandra J. Hopkins is a fiber artist who lives in Northern Colorado. Ten years ago she began processing and ultimately healing from personal trauma. During this time she put up her paintbrushes and pulled down her grandmother’s sewing machine. As she sewed, she was unable to throw out scraps and remnants of fabric, hoping to find a way not to waste anything. Those remnants held histories and symbolized people in their perceived raggedness. In her quilts, Sandra reclaims scraps and quilts them together restoring and witnessing to wholeness, or holiness, revealed in disconnected, ordinary histories. Sandra has shown in group and juried exhibitions in the US and Canada, including Denver Art Museum’s SPUN Community Quilt exhibit, The Lincoln Center Gallery in Fort Collins, and the Lookout Gallery in Vancouver, B.C. Sandra will also be teaching a creative workshop at the Ruminate Retreat: Living Awake during the day on October 1st.
