Denise Konicek

Denise Konicek, a talented artist, classical singer, and well-known Winchester resident, passed away on April 17th. For more than the past sixteen years, Denise worked on mastering and then teaching quilting. Her intricate and striking quilts have been included in numerous juried exhibitions as well. The Winchester Artist Network (Denise was an active member) and the Winchester Public Library are remembering Denise by including two of her quilts in May’s WAN exhibit in the Library.
