Piedmont Arts has New Student Work on Display

An exhibit of artwork by local high school students will be on display in Piedmont Arts’ Foster Gallery through February 4, 2022.

The exhibit features work by students in grades 9 – 12 who attend Martinsville High School, Magna Vista High School and Carlisle's Upper School.

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.”

Special Reception

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, January 27 from 4 – 6 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 – Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm. Admission to the museum is always free of charge.
