Reginald Sylvester II's paintings are manifestations of grace. The emergent young artist's influences range from the Bible, Abstract Expressionism, contemporary design, and the readymade. For his first American solo museum exhibition, Sylvester reflects on the charged history of the materials he uses in the creation of his work. Military tent shells – functional, utilitarian objects – serve as the substrate for a transcendent new body of abstract paintings that allude to shelter, protection, and refuge. The son of a U.S. veteran, Sylvester's use of military tents also connects with the familial.

Steve says: A self-described “tongue in cheek religious painter”, Joe Lafone once had a dream where God commanded him to paint endless images of Grandfather Mountain, a credible still life, and to Iron his shirts. As Joe states, “Two out of three ain’t bad.” I have painted and exhibited with Joe for 18 years. Together we hung shows in street fairs, restaurants, galleries, museums and yes, tattoo parlors.

The Kings Mountain Historical Museum is proud to announce a new exhibit coming this summer. The exhibit was created in conjunction with The Dover Library’s University Archives at Gardner Webb University and The Earl Scruggs Center.
Bound by Faith: The Bibles of Cleveland County offers visitors a look at some of the Bibles that were owned by Cleveland County residents and some of the interesting ways in which they were used in the secular world of the 19th and 20th centuries. This exhibit features several Bibles which include The O. Max Gardner Inaugural Bible, The O.M. Mull Inaugural Bible, a 1648 Field Bible, and many others. In addition to this collection, we are pulling several Bibles, Hymnals, and other items from our own collections to add to the story.
