Epilogue - The postcards, found bound by a red ribbon and without postmarks, end abruptly. But the field journal has surfaced, brought up from a previously unmapped tunnel in the Luray Caverns – damp, aged, and fragile. – from the Journey of the Red Scarves.
The Prince George Library (Appomattox Regional Library System) is hosting the art exhibit Journey of the Red Scarves,” featuring art and prose by Dawn Dickson-Van Ness of Blackstone, VA, through the month of May. Ms. Dickson-Van Ness describes her exhibit as both a gallery of paintings and a pictorial novel, with each painting a part of a “journey through dreamscapes.”
‘This exhibit shows the evolution of this unusual literary project from visual art to prose. It features paintings and related objects that illustrate the journey of her main character Sova,. Sova disappears, leaving behind only these objects in the exhibit. The exhibit will culminate in a forthcoming novella.
