Local Groups Donate Time and Cheer to Piedmont Arts
Boys & Girls Clubs, the Martinsville Garden Club and the Garden Study Club donated their time this week to bring some holiday cheer to Piedmont Arts.
Members of Boys & Girls Clubs lent their handiwork to the museum's Christmas tree in the form of hand-made ornaments. The festive decorations will brighten the Piedmont Arts lobby through the holidays.
Members of the Martinsville Garden Club and the Garden Study Club planted bulbs in the museum's Gravely-Lester Art Garden. In the spring, the bulbs will bloom into beautiful daffodils, which will complement the Art Garden's permanent sculpture, Cliffhanger by artist Jeff Fetty. Fetty's sculpture is a 10 ft. tall daffodil, commissioned by local businessman Will Pannill in memory of his father, Bill “DaffyBill” Pannill.
Piedmont Arts is honored to have area service organization's willing to donate their time in support of the arts in Martinsville-Henry County.
