Alma Church Picnic Vignette - 2007

     Kerras' made folk art from memories of his childhood.  This piece is a church picnic scene he knew well when growing up in the 1960-70's in rural Prince Edward Island.  In this piece he has the hallmarks of a church picnic - the cake auction; the homemade ice cream; the knock-the-cats-over game; the man who had too much to drank; the young man giving his girl a flower; a man running to the outhouse, etc. 
Kerras' piece built in April-May 2007
