The Bath House Cultural Center and the White Rock Lake Museum are seeking artwork in small scale for the upcoming exhibition, “The Lady.” The exhibition, inspired by the old myth of the Lady of White Rock Lake, will run from October 15, 2011 to January 28, 2012.
ABOUT THE LEGEND OF THE LADY OF THE LAKE
The following is a version of the Lady of the Lake tale. Artists, however, may find it helpful to read other accounts of the story by searching the story online or by consulting with others who have heard the legend.
“A well-known White Rock Lake legend is the story of the Lady of the Lake. According to the story, the ghost of a young woman appears at night, dripping wet in eveningwear. A car passes along the road circling the lake stops when the young woman tells the driver she has had an accident and needs to get home. The driver takes the woman to the address given, and when the driver arrives, the girl is gone, leaving only a waterlogged seat. The driver then learns after knocking on the door of the house that the young woman died by drowning when she fell out of a boat on the lake at night many years ago.”
