The Whirl: The Heart & Art of Twins at Cocoon Gallery

Cocoon Gallery in Apex presented the Heart & Art of Twins on November 11 featuring Author Marilyn Shannon and N.C. treasures, the Bringle Sisters, from Penland. Ceramic Artist Cynthia Bringle and Textile Artist Edwina Bringle shared their creations and discussed their 50 years of professional crafting as well as how being twins influences their unique artistic perspectives. Marilyn shared the similarities and differences of the sister’s experiences to those of the twins presented in her book, Listening into the Hearts of Twins, from her In Just One Afternoon book series. The event was hosted by Cynthia Mollenkopf, owner of Cocoon Gallery.
