Hampton Art Lovers has the distinct honor of showcasing the sculpture and sketchings of Basil Watson.Mr. Watson describes his art as “The harmonious expression of one’s vision of life.” This personal description of his lifelong passion is what defines him. For more than 40 years, he has been translating life’s most important attributes – positive emotions and attitudes, the spirit of freedom and spontaneity, strength, beauty, energy and vigor – into finely crafted works of art.
The Historic Ward Rooming House carries historical significance. Built in 1925 by Shaddrack and Victoria Ward, it served as a home for both blacks and Native Americans who needed a safe place to sleep at night.
