South Boston Arts Association

Meeting Postponed

Due to the impending snow storm

and the ever-present parking situation

you may want to spend this

Saturday morning, February 14

in the warmth of your snuggie pajamas

thinking pleasant thoughts about

some exciting art you may have seen

or read about ... because the February

meeting of the Arts Association

has been canceled.

Gingerbread House Contest Results

Posted by admin on December 6, 2014 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Thanks to the South Boston Catholic Academy and their 2 boxes of toys we were able to deliver a total of 4 giant boxes of toys to Toys for Tots on Friday morning. Your generosity will bring joy and smiles to a lot of childre!

We had fourteen entries this year and the winners are:


First Place Trophy (and bragging rights) South Boston Neighborhood Development Corp – The Nutcracker Suite (sweet) (for the second year in a row!)


First Place – Brooke Spaulding - A-Frame Winter Retreat (drew raves from Glenn)

Second Place – Eric and Cristina Prentis – Sullies! (amazing detail down to the trash cans and seagulls)

Third Place- Lucas Monahan- Hancock Tower and the BPL (Lucas is a Southie kid and a student at Johnson and Wales studying the culinary arts!)

Honorable mention ribbons went to our younger participants:

Gina Provenzano, William Mullins and Luis Garcia

Fan Favorite Ribbon : voted by the visitors

South Boston Catholic Academy Extended Day : A group of Afterschool students created a representation of the school along with gingerbread men of themselves! ( I think there was a lot of self-promotion by some of the attending students since they were seen explaining their creation to all the visitors). Way to go kids! I think we have some entrepreneurs(or politicians) in the making! 

The entries were fabulous this year and we wish we could have given prizes to each and every one. Anyone who has ever tried to create a gingerbread house knows the amount of work and effort that goes into it. So kudos to everyone who participated:


  • Brooke Spaulding
  • Eric and Cristina Prentis
  • Harold Cunnif
  • Gina Provenzano
  • Luis Garcia
  • Lucas Monahan
  • William Mullens
  • Stacy Exarches
  • SBCA After School Group
  • South Boston Neighborhood Development Corp
  • Ku de Ta
  • The Paramount
  • South Boston Health Center Youth Embassadors
  • Rooney RE


Thank you to all the hard working elves who made this day possible. Also a big thank you to our judges and their serious attention to detail.
