Quilting Ladies exhibit continues

South Boston News
Currently on exhibit in the Cage Gallery at the Prizery is “Quilting Ladies,” sponsored by Parsons-Bruce Art Association. The show, designed and organized by Ralph Wileman, is the association’s contribution to “Minds Wide Open,” Virginia’s 2010 celebration of Women in the Arts. The exhibit is a salute to the North Halifax Quilting Ladies and focuses on the history and purpose of the group and information on the art of quilting. Pictured is quilting lady Sue Tucker, one of the youngest members of the team. Residing in the Stovall community, she was born in Pittsylvania County to a large family of seven girls and three boys. Along with quilting, she counts gardening and puzzles as her hobbies. She teaches Sunday School and considers the Quilting Ladies to be like “church family.” The exhibit will remain on display through May 31 and is open during Prizery business hours and during events.

‘Driving Miss Daisy’ opens May 13 at Fine Arts Center

“Driving Miss Daisy” is a hugely popular play written by Alfred Uhry. When this tremendous play was written in 1987, it won that year’s Pulitzer Prize. It was very quickly adapted into a popular film in 1989, starring Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman. The joyful plot of the play deals with the unusual relationship between an old Southern Jewish lady and her humble and rough African-American chauffeur over the span of 25 years.
