About SASi’s Founder A. B. Snow
A. B. Snow was a founding member of the Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain. She was talented and productive artist and a regular at the
Springmaid Workshops in Myrtle Beach since they began.
A. B. was the heart of the Southern Arts Society. In 1984 A.B. gathered a dozen friends and newcomers to start an art group to encourage each other and promote the arts in the community. The Southern Arts Society was so named to be inclusive of anyone, anywhere who wanted to join to learn and grow as an artist. A.B. did the newsletter, mailings and organized programs. She gave us all advice on our artwork. She could always see how to fix a painting when you were stuck. Everything we did had her input and approval.
Needing a fundraiser for the Southern Arts Society, our late founder A.B. Snow turned to her longtime friend Mary Goslen of Winston Salem for help. Mary did her own silk-screening calendar and A.B. thought we could do that as well. For over 30 years, SASI (Southern Arts Society) has been designing and silk screening by hand this Limited Edition Calendar to sell. See them for yourself.
A. B. was a pied piper for children. She was always there with a smile and a hug for everyone. She brought the late John Brady to Kings Mountain to teach adult and children’s classes. A.B. herself taught many classes and will be remembered for the encouragement she gave to those who tried. A. B. will be greatly missed by all, but her legacy lives on.
