Ramsey exhibit opens Sunday at the Prizery
SoVaNow.com / January 06, 2014Parsons-Bruce Art Association presents a unique art exhibit opening Sunday, Jan. 12 at The Prizery. The month long exhibit will feature portraits completed in two hour sessions by local artist Wyatt Ramsey.
Ramsey explains that the idea of the exhibit is to bring people from the community together through the arts, “Since I have been away from South Boston for several years attending college, two hour portraits are a way for me and my clients to reconnect.”
According to Ramsey, portrait painting in two hour sessions gives him the opportunity to meet and talk and get to know people he otherwise would only be able to see on Facebook.
Ramsey’s goal for the exhibit is to use social media to enhance community instead of isolating people from each other and adds, “It is also great practice to grow as an artist personally.”
The opening of the exhibit, sponsored by Parsons-Bruce Art Association, is Sunday, in the Bob Cage Gallery at The Prizery. A reception is planned from 3-5 p.m. and the public is invited to attend.
Ramsey will be accepting art commissions during the reception and plans to donate 30 percent of those commissions to The Prizery.
