Stuff About Me:

Emily Ruggles Holman was a sophomore at Park School in Baltimore when she died from suicide in 2002.  She ran on the cross country team, loved poetry and literature, and sewed mostly by hand to create whimsical and sometimes angry pieces of patchwork clothing, pouches, and quilts.

Her pouches, as artwork, will be exhibited in the "Touched with Fire" exhibit this fall. Your contribution to the New Day campaign will help defray the expenses of this exhibit and honor Emily's memory.

“Touched with Fire: Behind the Curtain”

October 5 to November 20

Art Gallery, CCBC Essex

7106 Ridge Rd., Rosedale, MD 21237

The theme draws its name from the groundbreaking 1996 book Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament, by renowned psychologist Kay Redfield Jamison. “Touched with Fire: Behind the Curtain” presents uplifting and life-affirming art alongside words and journal entries that reveal a harrowing darkness: how to reconcile these two internal forces?
