Parsons-Bruce Art Association is pleased to present a two-month art exhibit featuring Lake Country Artisans Guild President, Sarah Bolduc.  Opening day for the exhibit is Sunday, April 8, 2018 in the Robert F. Cage Gallery at the Prizery in South Boston.   

Sarah’s exhibit, Creative Expressions, explodes with diversity.  Not only is the exhibit colorful, enticing and thought provoking; it releases the artist’s expressions of inner thoughts, surroundings and experiences through multiple mediums of oils, acrylics, pastels, mixed media and textile art.

Sarah says her art has evolved over her lifetime, “With early professional art training and many life experiences enhancing my artistic development, I have embraced becoming a studio artist.”  Many of her painting reflect the beauty surrounding her lake-front home and are multiple and uncompromising with vivid brush work, mild blending, wash, gouache, impasto, printing, stitchery, and more.

Creative Expressions creates a diverse world of art that is colorful, uniquely expressive and just plain fun,” Sarah said.

Promising a feast for the eyes, “One will never quite know what to do with my continual art presentation and exploration; except enjoy,” she added. 

  Parsons-Bruce Art Association invites the public to the opening of Creative Expressions by Sarah Bolduc Sunday, April 8 in the Robert F. Cage Art Gallery at The Prizery in Downtown South Boston with a reception planned from 3 pm until 5 pm.  The exhibit will run through mid-May and will be available for viewing and purchasing during The Prizery’s regular operating hours.

Crossing of the Dan Exhibit

Commemorating 14 February, 1781
in Halifax County, Virginia

Tavern

A project of the Halifax County Historical Society, this permanent, interpretive exhibit of the Crossing of the Dan is housed on the top floor of The Prizery, overlooking the original Boyd's Ferry site. The exhibit is intended to keep the story alive and bring visitors to Halifax County.

The Crossing of the Dan exhibit opens much like the beginning of the Southern Campaign of the American War for Independence. In the exhibit's opening scene, General Nathanael Greene instructs his Quartermaster, Lt. Col. Edward Carringtom, to "explore" the Dan and Yadkin Rivers to find an efficient route for transporting supplies to his army in North Carolina. Little did they know that this fateful decision would later save the American war efforts.

The exhibit describes the event, the military events that preceded the event, what the people of Halifax County did to aid Gen. Greene, the military action after the event, including the final encounter at Yorktown, and communicates the purpose and value of the American Revolutionary War.
