A visit with an old friend, Lee Ann Sours–Artist Profile by Nathan Lee McAlister
“In the beginning I wasn’t thinking about being a fiber artist. I was just thinking about farming.” Lee Ann Sours
Over the last few years, Missouri Folk Arts has collaborated with community documentarians to identify traditional arts regionally; document traditions locally; and share Missouri stories more widely.
Last year, Nathan Lee McAlister visited southwest Missouri weaver Lee Ann Sours on behalf of Missouri Folk Arts and shared an artist profile and photos with us. Our collaboration with Nathan was made possible thanks to funding from Mid-America Arts Alliance with Folk & Traditional Arts funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. Thanks to all, and especially to Lee Ann Sours and Nathan Lee McAlister.
