"A Life Like Yours and Mine"
Southside Community Services Board's
Annual Consumer Art Contest Exhibit


      
 

Southside Community Services Board is a non-profit behavioral health organization which provides a wide range of services to adults and children within Brunswick, Mecklenburg, and Halifax Counties. With approximately 18 locations throughout the region, some of the services provided to the community include Outpatient Therapy, ID-DD Day Support, Skill Building, Residential, Substance Abuse, Prevention, Case Management, and Crisis Intervention.

In June, SSCSB held their annual art show titled, “A Life Like Yours and Mine” at their administrative building in Clarksville. 89 individuals served by the agency were represented in the show and this year’s theme was “Things that make me smile”. First and second place winners were chosen, along with 12 honorable mention selections, to be featured in the upcoming SSCSB 2019 Calendar.

Each work of art in SSCSB’s Main Gallery exhibit is as unique and special as the individuals represented, and the Colonial Center is honored to have the opportunity to display these winning and honorable mention pieces. For more information about SSCSB, their services, and their annual art show, please take a minute to visit their website at www.sscsb.org.

The Art Galleries are open for free public viewing from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and during all Colonial Center public performance events.

"Lisa's Lines from Under the Hat"
Poetry and Prose Exhibit
By Lisa Clary
      

 

Lisa Clary is well-known throughout South Hill, Mecklenburg County, and beyond for her involvement in many civic organizations as well as her role as a reporter, photographer, and Account Executive for the MECKLENBURG SUN. Many people recognize her as “Lisa the Hat Lady,” and her poetry and prose exhibition will be aptly titled, “Lisa’s Lines from Under the Hat.”

She has been writing since she was in school and poetry writing has been her hobby for many years. Considering the personal nature of most of her writings, she has been putting a collection of them aside for quite some time. Recently, she decided to post some of her written works on Facebook and she was also encouraged to send them to her South Hill United Methodist Church newsletter. Now she is sharing her thoughts, random words, and poetry for others to enjoy. Lisa also has copies of her newly-published book, “Lisa’s Lines from Under the Hat” available for purchase in the galleries during her exhibition.

The Art Galleries are open for free public viewing from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and during all Colonial Center public performance events.
