Parsons-Bruce Art Association will feature the art work of Mecklenburg County native, Cassie Ott, in the Robert F. Cage Gallery at the Prizery during May and June.
Cassie attended Halifax County High School and is a 2013 graduate of the North Carolina State University Art and Design Program. She currently lives in Raleigh where she is a full-time professional painter, a teacher for the Wine and Design Corporation and director of the Art Buzz Kids program. During the summer of 2015, Cassie was artist-in-residence and manager of Gallery C East in Atlantic Beach, N. C. Her works include watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, and fabric design which represent her eclectic view of the world.
Ott says, “I've always been a very creative person. Growing up I spent most of my free time drawing and painting. I don't think that I ever had one doubt in my mind that I was meant to be an artist.” While she wasn't always sure where her passion would lead her, she was sure that art was a big part of her life. “In school I gained an understanding of design process and how to personally capitalize on what I loved,” she explained.
The public is cordially invited to attend the opening of Cassie Ott’s art exhibit with a reception scheduled for Sunday, May 15 at 3 pm in the Robert F. Cage Gallery at the Prizery in downtown South Boston. The exhibit will be on display for viewing and purchasing until mid June during the Prizery’s regular operating hours.
