An exhibit of artwork by local elementary school students will be on display in Piedmont Arts’ Foster Gallery through December 3, 2021.
The exhibit features work by students in grades K–5 who attend Carver, Meadow View and Patrick Henry elementary schools.
Director of Programs Sarah Short says exhibits in the Foster Gallery are an important part of the museum’s community programming. “The Foster Gallery is for the display of work by young artists,” she continued. “By showing student work at Piedmont Arts, we encourage young people to participate in the arts and give students’ friends and families the opportunity to experience the wealth of young talent we have in our area.”
Charity League of Martinsville-Henry County and Piedmont Arts will host a reception for students who have work on display and their families on Thursday, November 11 from 4 – 5:30 pm at Piedmont Arts. Admission is free and light refreshments will be provided.
For more than 25 years, Piedmont Arts’ Foster Gallery has been generously curated by Charity League. Piedmont Arts and Charity League believe that fostering an early exposure to the arts is critical for a well-rounded educational experience.
Piedmont Arts is open Tuesday – Friday from 10 am – 5 pm and Saturday from 10 am – 3 pm. Admission to the museum is always free of charge.
