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.
