Art exhibition of N.A. founder's daughter to be held
An effort is under way to collect stories and borrow artistic creations from the life of Edith Jackson Alexander, known to some as a daughter of James U. Jackson, North Augusta's founder.
An exhibition of her art work is planned for March at the Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta, on the municipal building's ground floor.
Jackson, who was born in 1893 and died in 1985, spent most of her life in Rosemary Hall, on Carolina Avenue, with teaching art among her pursuits. She was known to some as "Edie."
The North Augusta Historical Society's 1980 history of the community noted, "Former students who have pursued careers in art credit their early interest in the subject to Mrs. Alexander. She has also been willing to help many North Augustans in individual ways always quietly, behind the scenes, with no fanfare and seeking no credit."
Lauren Virgo, director of the arts and heritage facility, is the contact person for anyone willing to lend a Jackson creation or share a story and can be reached at 441-4380. For more information, visit www.artsandheritagecenter.com.
